Lemon Cake in a Jar Recipe
Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? If so, what was it? If you’re like the majority of Americans (roughly 38% according to Statistic Brain) than it had to do with weight loss.
How are you doing? Still sticking to that resolution?
One reason that many individuals “fall off the wagon”, so to speak is because they are too strict when trying to stick to their resolutions. Being on a very limited diet and denying yourself any and all guilty pleasures gets old fast! One of the secrets to success is to allow yourself little indulgences now and again. Trust me, a sweet treat here and there may be just the thing to keep you from completely going off the rails and scarfing down a whole bag of potato chips or half a cake. When you’re looking for one of those sweet treats, consider this cake in a jar recipe.
