Recipe Of The Month Fast Mincemeat Cake Sheena made this cake for a recent Church Guild meeting for members to have with their cup of tea; it was so delicious that some requested the recipe. Sheena says it is also good for a quick Christmas cake if time is short.
Sheena Anderson Preheat oven to 160°C/fan, 140°C/gas. Lightly grease a deep round 20cm (8”) cake tin and line the base and sides with non stick baking parchment.
Bake for about 1¾ hours or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Cover the cake with foil after one hour if it is beginning to brown too much. Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes then turn out. Cake can be covered with almond paste (takes 2lb) and 2lb of fondant icing. Leave about a week between covering with almond paste and icing.
