Mini Mincemeat Loaves

Updated: May 7

I used to make these every Christmas when I baked for a local market and they were always very popular.


They are a good way to use up any excess mincemeat after Christmas or for a Boxing Day treat!




They are lovely light cakes and really tasty with a cup of tea or a glass of fizz over the festive period.


It is an all in one mix so very easy when you need to make something quickly for unexpected guests and if you don't have the mini loaf tin you can easily make them in a muffin tin instead.


Start by pre-heating the oven to 160 degrees centigrade (140 fan) Gas mark 3.


Grease a mini loaf cake tin with cake release spray.



This is an easy all-in-one recipe so just put all the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer.



Mix together until smooth.



Divide the mixture between the 12 loaves and flatten with a small spatula.



Sprinkle the flaked almonds on the top.



Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly.



Leave to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tin then place them on a wire cooling rack.

Sarah's extra slice.....


These cakes will freeze well or will keep for a week in an airtight container.


You can use a muffin tin if you don't have the loaf tin tray or you can buy disposable loaf tins.
