Many, many months (years?) ago, I read about baking cake in mason jars — not the normal, large canning jars, but the smaller half-pint jars. Problem was that I could not find half-pint jars locally or maybe I just did not know where to look for them. Imagine my joy when a friend reported that they were available now at the grocery store. I immediately ran out and bought a dozen. The next day, I baked.
These were ridiculously simple — I used a cake mix and one box made a perfect dozen.
I can’t think of a better way to put a little love in a lunch box.
