Mince Pie Cakes recipe

These tasty little cakes are a fabulous way of using mincemeat for those who find pastry pies a bit too heavy. They're also flavoured with brown sugar, rather than caster sugar, echoing the richness of the mincemeat.


  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 175g softened butter
  • 175g mincemeat
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 2tsp. allspice


  1. Heat the oven to 190C and line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases.

  2. Beat the flour, butter, sugar, allspice, eggs and milk together until smooth.

  3. Place a few tsp. of the cake into the bottom of each cake liner and then place a heaped tsp. of mincemeat on top of that. Cover the mincemeat with another few tsp. of the cake mix and then smooth out.

  4. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden.

Dredge the cakes with icing sugar before serving either as they are or with some thick double cream.
