Slide these brownies out of their jars, slice and enjoy with scoops of your favorite ice cream and chocolate sauce. Be sure to use wide-mouth jars, or the brownies can't slide out!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup buttermilk, room temperature
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
3 (1-pint) wide-mouth canning jars and lids, sterilized
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add water and next 4 ingredients, beating until combined. Add flour mixture, mixing until just blended. Divide batter equally among buttered jars; wipe rims. Each jar should be slightly less than half full. Place jars on a jelly-roll pan in center of oven; bake, uncovered, at 325° for 40 minutes. Wipe rims; cover with metal lids and screw on bands. Set aside to cool.
TIP: Give Brownies Baked in a Jar with whimsical sundae dishes, colorful spoons and a sampling of ice-cream toppings...a treat to beat the summer heat!
