Ingredients
  • Yellow Cake:
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • Vegetable nonstick spray
  • Chocolate Ganache:
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Special equipment: four 8-ounce jam jars, cleaned and dried
Directions

For the yellow cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a medium bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating in between additions. Add the vanilla and beat until well mixed.

Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until incorporated. Mix in the half-and-half. Mix in the remaining half of the flour mixture.

Spray the jars with vegetable nonstick spray. Fill each jar about halfway full with batter. Place the jars on a baking sheet and bake until the cake springs back from a gentle touch, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the chocolate ganache: Boil the half-and-half in a saucepan. Add the chocolate. Let the ganache sit for 5 minutes, and then whisk until smooth.

Once the cakes are cooked, remove from the oven and cool, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon the chocolate ganache on top. Top jars with vacuum-seal lids. The heat of the cakes will create the seal as the cakes cool.
