This is a spin on the Mix in a jar recipes. Instead of putting it in a jar and give as a gift. You bake it in a jar. Then you can give the baked gift to friends or is great for the kids who are always saying "His piece is bigger".

How to Make Pumpkin Cake in a Jar

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 8 wide-mouth pint jars.

  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, spices, and baking soda together; add to pumpkin mixture and stir well. Stir in nuts. Pour into jars, filling 1/2 full.
