   Sometime ago there was a request for baking cakes in a mason jar. Here is
   recipe I found in “Tightwad Gazette;” 12/92, Issue 31.
    Cream together shortening and sugar.  Beat in eggs, applesauce and water.
   Sift flour, baking powder, soda, salt and spices, and add to mixture. Stir
   in nuts. Pour into well-greased pint jars, ones with wide mouths and no
    Fill 1/2 full.  Bake at 325 for 45 minutes.  Wipe jars clean, put canning
   lid and ring on and screw tight. Jars seal as they cool. Decorate tops of
   jars with material and ribbon. Store in cupboard.
    This recipe makes 12-14 pint jars. According to Rhonda of Moore, Oklahoma
   this cake “tastes great and will last sealed for one year.”
