Great Gift Item!

Top Review by llkeesey

I made this the other day in hopes of making some for xmas gifts. It was very tasty, but I was unsure of the size pan to use and put it in an 8x8 pan. It was very moist and I realized it should be made in a 9x12 pan. I will still be making some jars up for gifts, just make sure you tell them to use a large pan.

  2. It is helpful to tap jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer the ingredients to make all ingredients fit neatly.
  3. Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter circle from fabric of your choice.
  4. Center fabric circle over lid and secure with a rubber band.

  6. Attach a card with the following directions: Crazy Cake 3/4 cup Vegetable Oil, 2 tsp Vinegar, 1 tsp Vanilla and 2 cups Water.
