6. Banana Bread In-A-Jar.

Banana Bread In-A-Jar. If you put a canning lid on them when they first come out of the oven, they seal, and they will stay good for about two months. I've given my parents dessert in a jar for Christmas for years. I do pumpkin bread, carrot cake, and applesauce cake. You can do it with any moist bread or cake
