Jar Baked Brownie Cakes
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Grease two 1-pint straight-sided wide-mouth canning jars; line the bottom of each jar with waxed paper. Set aside. In a small bowl sitr together flour, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon, if desired. Set aside. In a medium saucepan combine butter, water, and cocoa powder; heat and stir until butter is melted and mixture is blended. Remove from heat; stir in flour mixture. Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla; beat by hand till smooth. Stir in nuts. Pour mixture into the prepared canning jars, about 2/3 full. Cover the jars tightly with greased foil. (Place greased-side down on each jar). Place jars in a crockpot with liner in place. Cover; cook on high heat setting for 2 3/4 to 3 hours or till cakes spring back when touched and a long wooden tooth-pick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Remove jars from crockpot; cool 10 minutes. Unmold cakes; remove waxed paper.
