After mince pies and mince pies, I made a few changes and found this recipe for mincemeat cup cakes! They were just as easy to make – bit of cake mix, big spoonful of mincemeat and another dollop of cake mix, few mins in the oven and a different christmassy delight!
Ingredients: makes about 15
175 g self-raising flour
100 g light muscovado sugar
1 tsp mixed spice
175 g butter
2 tbsp milk
about 140 g mincemeat
icing sugar , for dusting
Prepare baking tin with cup cake cases. Put the flour, sugar, spice, butter, eggs and milk into a mixing bowl or processor and whisk for 2-3 mins, until the mix is light and fluffy.
Put a spoonful of cake mix in each case, then add a big teaspoonful of mincemeat and cover the mincemeat with another spoonful of cake mix. Smooth the top.
Bake for at 170°C for 15-18 mins until golden brown and firm. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or cold, plain or with cream.
