Yum! I had some mincemeat left over and decided to try these - they are delicious! I think I will also try them with some stewed apple when the festive season is over.

Baked in mini muffin silicon tray. made about 30. Baked for 18-19mins at 180 degrees. Used piping bag for ease. Came out well enough - not quite as nice as a mince pie, but I will make again as they are much less faffing!

These were rally delicious. Made some slightly larger ones in muffin cases and baked them longer. Really tasty.

I did this as a slab cake in a 9"x9" tin - bake for 30-35 mins and cut into squares. I put half in the freezer for another day. Very good served warm with rum and raisin ice cream-careful you don't burn your mouth on the hot mincemeat though! Lovely light- textured sponge cake-I just added vanilla not mixed spice, and not too sweet like mince pies.

i made these with the Sandham Family Mince recipe too. so much easier than messing about with pastry for mince pies. this recipe made 18 regular sized cupcakes. i think next time i'll try them with lots of cinnamon and use the muffin tin

so quick and easy to make. Used the muffin size tins and the mixture was the right amount.
