Shaker Cake

Here is an easy and fun recipe to make, especially if you have kids around.  I found this recipe on You will need a 1/2 gallon jar (I recommend anything with a wide mouth and tight fitting lid). It's called Shaker Cake because you shake all your ingredients together!
You will need:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c oil
  • 1 c orange juice
  • 2 c flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
Now here's the fun part: crack the eggs into a small bowl,  (this is just in case you have a shell-or an egg cracking incident, you can get it out easily!)

Pour the 4 eggs into the jar and shake until they are mixed up
ADD the sugar, oil, orange juice, SHAKE
Shaker Cake
ADD flour, baking powder, and salt, SHAKE until it's mixed well.

POUR batter into a greased 9x13 pan.
BAKE 375 for about 30 minutes or until the top springs back or a toothpick comes out clean.

You can frost this or just sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. I'm a frosting girl so I cover everything with it, but it is a moist cake so it would be good either way.

    I made the shaker cake! It was so easy and it turned out great! my oven bakes a little bit hot so I baked it for 28 minutes at 350. This might be my new favorite cake! And no mess to clean up except a jar! Thank you!
