Chocolate Jar Cakes

8 pint-sized wide mouth canning jars
1 stick plus 3 T. unsalted butter
3 C. sugar
4 eggs
1 T. vanilla
2 C. applesauce, unsweetened
3 C. flour
3/4 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt

Prewash canning jars (be sure to use the kind that have no shoulders)
in hot, soapy water. Rinse well, dry and let them come to room
temperature. Grease insides of jar well. Beat together butter
and half of sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and remaining sugar,
vanilla and applesauce. Sift dry ingredients together and add to
the applesauce mixture a little at a time: beat well after each
addition. Pour one cup of batter into each jar and carefully remove
any batter from the rims. Place jars in a preheated 325 degree
oven and bake for 40 minutes. While cakes are baking, bring a
saucepan of water to a boil and carefull add jar lids. Remove pan
from heat and keep lids hot until ready to use. When the cakes
have finished baking, remove jars from oven.

Make sure jar rims are clean. (If they're not, jars will not seal

Place lids on jars, and screw rings on tightly. Jars will seal as
they cool.

Cakes will slide right out when ready to serve. Unsealed jars should
be stored in the refrigerator and eaten within 2 weeks. Sealed jars
may be stored with other canned food or placed in a freezer. The
cake is safe to eat as long as the jar remains vacuum sealed and
free from mold. To enjoy the best flavor, try to eat all canned
cakes withim 6 months.
