Canned Banana Bread

I saw on TV years ago a guy who baked banana bread in glass canning jars and sealed them as they came out of the oven. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

      Thanks for the replies. To mtomto, I was hoping to include canned bread in gift baskets. My mom cans almost everything including a really good coleslaw. Maybe it is a prairie thing. It is about hoarding food. If you can figure out a way to keep something for a long time, that's a "good thing"

      When I read your post, I went digging for a couple blog posts I've read about cakes in jars:

      Poppy Seed:

      Perhaps they will help you decide what, if any, changes you need to make to an existing banana bread recipe for baking in jars. Good luck, and, based on the links above, be safe!

        Here's a link with a basic recipe and procedure:

        Read it and weep, here's a link with a warning about this process:

        And another warning:

        Considering the warnings given, I don't recommend doing this.
