Make cake in a glass recipes: basic approach, thousands of variations

Basically, any sponge cake is suitable for baking cakes in the glass. You want to serve your own creation? Then you can follow the following basic recipe. For about four small cakes, each of which fits into a 580 milliliter glass, you need:

  • 225 g soft margarine or butter
  • 225 g of sugar
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 450 g of flour
  • 1 packet of baking soda
  • 200 ml of milk 

These basic ingredients can be expanded and refined differently. For example, add fresh or dried fruit in small pieces to the dough. Also cocoa powder, various spices, almond sticks or chocolate pieces are conceivable.

Great for the storage cupboard

If you want to bake cakes in the glass, you can use any heat-resistant glass as one with a screw cap. You can preserve the cake in mason jars with a rubber ring for several weeks. To do this, remove the rubber rings before baking . You should also thoroughly clean both the glass and the ring first. The rubber rings are best poured over with boiling water and let soak briefly.

Close the preserving jar as soon as the cake is ready. If it cools down, it forms a conservative vacuum. No matter which glass you choose: Always fill it with about two thirds of dough, so that the cake can rise well in the oven.

  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 30 g Rum (to taste)
