Holiday Mincemeat Cake
I made this cake one year for Christmas when I was short of time and wasn't able to make a pie. It was a big hit. It is a very moist cake best served with just a dusting of icing sugar for garnish.

Yields: 12 servings
Number of ingredients: 16
  • 150g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1½ tsp ground mixed spice
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 125g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 125g dark muscovado sugar
  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • 400g rum butter mincemeat or use a good quality store-bought mincemeat
  • 275g good quality mixed dried fruit
  • 100g glacé cherries, halved
  • 25g stem ginger in syrup, drained and chopped
  • 50g blanched almonds, chopped
  • Extra rum for feeding the cake (optional)
  • You’ll also need…
  • Deep 20cm round cake tin, base and sides greased and lined with 2 layers of non-stick baking paper; 2 x large pieces of newspaper; extra baking paper and foil
  • Calories: 70kcals
  • Fat: 24.6g (12.2g saturated)
  • Protein: 6.7g
  • Carbohydrate: 54.4g (34.7g sugars)
  • Fiber: 2g
How to cook:
  1. Tie a thick, wide band of folded newspaper around the outside of the tin. Fold another wad of newspaper into a pad to fit under the tin and put it on a baking sheet. Heat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan/gas 3 and position one of the oven racks on the bottom rung of the oven.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and spice into a large mixing bowl (or the large bowl of a stand mixer). Add the ground almonds, softened butter, sugar and eggs and beat for about 1 minute with an electric hand mixer (or in a stand mixer) until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the rum butter mincemeat, mixed dried fruit, glacé cherries, stem ginger and chopped almonds.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake tin and level the surface with the back of the spoon.
  4. Tear off a double thickness sheet of non-stick baking paper, large enough to cover the top of the tin generously, then cut a hole in the centre about the size of a £2 coin. Put the cake on top of the wad of newspaper, then slide the tray into the oven on the bottom shelf. Lay the sheet of non-stick baking paper over the top of the tin and bake for 2 hours or until a skewer pushed into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Leave the cake to cool in the tin on a wire cooling rack. When it’s completely cold, remove from the tin and peel away the baking paper (see Get Ahead). Wrap tightly in non-stick baking paper and foil and store in an airtight tin, feeding with rum every week if you want to. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to add marzipan and ice the cake.
