Contributed by our good friend Mama B. Check out her blog at: or see this recipe on her blog at: 12 Mason Jar Cakes


1 pkg. Namaste Foods Spice Cake Mix
4 eggs (or equivalent Namaste Vegan Egg Replacer)
3/4 cup water
2/3 cup oil or melted butter
1 cup grated carrots
handful raisins (or dried cranberries)
1 container cream cheese frosting
12 half pint canning jars (opening as big or bigger than bottom)


  1. Heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Lightly spray mason jars with non-stick spray.
  3. Combine all ingredients together and mix well.
  4. Pour cake batter into mason jars and fill half way or slightly more; take care not to over fill or they will rise out of the jar and potentially fall over while baking.
  5. Place jars on a baking sheet and bake in oven for 40-45 minutes; until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Once cool to handle; turn jars upside down to allow cakes to "pour" out onto platter to cool completely.
  8. When cakes are completely cooled; slice into 2" thick slices and arrange on plates.
  9. Warm container of cream cheese frosting in microwave safe bowl for 15 seconds to melt. Do not over heat frosting or it will separate and require whipping back together.
  10. Drizzle cream cheese frosting over slices and serve.
