As promised, its back to normal here with a recipe. Now, you might think that mincemeat is an odd ingredient to be using in June....and it is really.
I found a rather large jar of homemade mincemeat left over from Christmas right at the back of my cupboard and I fancied baking with it. Using my trusty friend Twitter I came across this recipe on Cooking Cakes and Children blog and gave it a go. I used a slightly smaller baking tin so the slices are a bit thicker, but that's really the only change I made.
Delicious as an after school snack with a glass of ice cold milk.
