Don’t you think it’s a perfect idea to preserve cakes in a jar so you always have a little portion of cake ready whenever you crave it? Just take a spoon and dig in!

That’s why I’m sharing one of theses recipes with you:


Pear & Chocolate Marble Cake in a Jar

makes about 8 little jars (à 125ml)

  • 200g soft butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 150g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75g corn starch
  • 3 teaspoons cocoapowder
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 50g chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 2 pears
  • ~ 8 clean, little jars

Butter the insides of the jars and dust them with flour. Preheat oven to 350°F.

Whip butter and sugar until creamy, then add the eggs one at a time. Mix flour and starch, sift onto the egg mix and fold in. Divide batter into 2 portions.

Mix one half with cocoapowder and milk, then add the chocolate chunks. For the second batter you have to peel and cut the pears into little pieces. Add to the white batter and mix well.

Now spoon the batter into the jars – alternating between dark and white batter – but only fill them about halfway. Use a little fork to swirl the batter, but do not overmix.

Put the jars in the oven and bake them for 35 minutes (but test them with a skewer before you take them out of the oven – when the skewer comes out clean the cake is completely cooked). Take the jars out of the oven and immediately screw the lid on. Let them cool and store in a cold place – that way they will keep for up to 4 weeks!


Did you ever bake a cake in a jar? What would you like to try?


Have a lovely sunday & HAPPY BAKING!
