Angel Food Mason Jar Dessert

28 May 2013

Good morning! Are you having as hard of a time adjusting to this not being Monday? In fact, it might be harder to get up after having a relaxing day off yesterday for Memorial Day. Since I had a bit of time off, I thought I would tackle a new project/recipe. And here it is. Mason Jar Angel Food Cake. 

Who doesn't love to eat or drink things out of mason jars? This recipe is the inaugural use of my entire set of canning jars. The recipe is pretty simple. I do not have a bundt cake pan so in essence I was looking for an alternative for some angel food cake that I got on the cheap about a month ago. 

I basically followed the directions on the box by preheating the oven and whipping up the powdered egg packet in my KitchenAid Mixer until dense peaks formed. Next, I added the batter packet and continued to mix on low. I took a 1/3 measuring cup and divided out the batter as even as a I could between the pre-greased mason jars. I set those jars on a heavy duty cookie sheet to place them all directly in the oven. I wouldn't recommend licking the bowl on this one. Kind of tangy!

I allowed the angel food cake to cook for 16 minutes in the oven until the tops were golden brown but not burned. Mmmmm! They tasted delicious right out of the oven! The ease of keeping them covered makes this recipe perfect for picnics! 


  1. What a great idea! I made angel food cake for a BBQ this past weekend and I wish I knew about this then because it would've been adorable!

    1. They are super awesome! Imagine what other treats could be cooked up in mason jars!

  2. How do you always come up with all these cool things!? I'm kinda sorta jealous and now I think I need to try it!

  3. OMG little individual angel food cakes... so smart!

  4. What a great idea! These would be perfect for transporting to parties too!
