How To Use Mason Jars For Baking

There are a few points to consider prior to using Mason Jars according to Chef Mom. We have included her best points to assist you with your recipes.

  1. Sterilize Jars in boiling hot water. This will combat bacteria. Pay special attention to rims and lids. Leave to dry thoroughly.
  2. Oil and Flour the inside of the Mason Jars.
  3. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Prepare your batter as you normally would
  4. When filling your Mason Jars with batter, do so until they are around 2/3 full.
  5. Mason Jars are meant to be used in hot water baths and cannot be used in a dry oven without a water bath. A Pressure Canner is another way they can be cooked.
  6. Mason Jars will require 25-30 minutes cooking time and quart-sized Mason Jars will require 60 minutes, depending on what you are cooking.
  7. It is important to seal mason jars after baking. For bread and cupcakes, you can immediately seal. For cheesecakes, allow to sit uncovered and cool prior to sealing.
  8. Chef Mom suggests that you can leave your cakes, cupcakes and breads at room temp for a few days. Mason Jars are wonderful for presenting delicious treats as gifts and you can add ribbons and a recipe card to complete your look.
