These DIY Gluten-Free Cakes in a Jar are perfect to gift to your fellow gluten-free and vegan friends.
Why Cakes in a Jar Make Good Gifts
These Gluten-Free Cakes in a Jar are the perfect DIY gifts for your friends, here’s why:
They are a perfectly portioned dessert
Now when your friend (or family member) desires something sweet, they don’t have to make an entire batch of cookies (or an entire cake). Instead, they can enjoy this delicious perfectly portioned cake without the temptation of an entire batch of cupcakes…
They can be made in under 5 minutes
Because the can be made so quickly, they make a great quick indulgence. And when I say they take less than 5 minutes to make, I mean you will assemble this in max 5 minutes (but probably 2) and they will cook it within 2 minutes. A win/win.
They show that you know and care about their dietary need
Trust me, this means a lot. Sometimes it can feel like the whole world doubts your dietary needs. Knowing that you understand and will make the effort is honestly the best gift you can give to gluten-free friends. It’s always nice to know we have someone in our corner.

How to Gift a Gluten-Free Cake in a Jar
To gift these bad boys, add only the dry ingredients to jars of your choice (I recommend these 8oz jars).
Make a pretty label with the preparation directions written on the back.
Directions should be written as follows:
◊ Remove the lid
◊ Add in 2 tbsp oil of choice
◊ Pour in 1/4 cup milk of choice
◊ Mix until well combined
◊ Microwave for 1-2 minutes (don’t be alarmed if it starts “jumping” out of the jar, it won’t overflow)
◊ Let it cool for 2-3 minutes (caution, it will be VERY hot)
After creating a label and writing out the directions on the back, tie it on to the jar (bonus points if you use a beautiful ribbon).
Alternatively, print off my pre-made labels and just tie them to the jar (click here to grab the printables)!
Place the cake in a jar(s) in a basket or box (or keep it as is) and gift away.
