Two-Minute Strawberry Cake In A Jar

Country Rebel Recipes

Strawberries are in abundance this year and we can’t get enough of them! From bread to ice cream to cobblers and crisps, strawberries are the perfect addition to any recipe. But, if you’re only baking for one or two it can be tough to find recipes that don’t leave you with a refrigerator full of leftovers.

The good news is that we’ve found a way to make the most of strawberry season that will only take a few minutes of your time and will make just the right amount for one or two (if you’re feeling generous). This recipe for Strawberry Cake is baked in a pint jar in just two minutes and requires ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry. Top the warm cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and more strawberries and you’ll have a recipe you’ll be making again and again.
