Mincemeat Squares

Mincemeat Squares
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.


| Serves: 16 squares | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 40 Minutes | Total Time: 50 Minutes |


  • 200g self raising flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 175g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 115g porridge oats
  • 1 jar mincemeat


  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c/gas 4 and grease a 20x20com baking tin.
  • Step 2:Mix together the flour, sugar and oats then rub in the butter until breadcrumb like clumps form.
  • Step 3: Tip half of the mix into the baking tin and press down. Spread over the mincemeat then put the other half of the oaty mix on top.
  • Step 4: Bake for around 35-40 minutes.
  • Step 5: Mark into squares but leave to cool completely in tin.
