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

I made these on Christmas eve. They were so simple to make (for a baking novice) and they tasted amazing, particularly when hot. I can't wait to make them again!
