These speedy, delicious recipes are all so simple that even non-bakers will be able to make them, so no one need miss out on the festive baking fun (or the eating!).
Preparation Time: 15min
Cooking Time: 40-45min
Makes: 1 x 9-inch Bundt cake (12-16 portions)
- Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan).
- In the large mixing bowl, using either the spatula or wooden spoon, cream together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix until combined.
- Add in the flour and mix until no lumps remain, then using the tablespoon, fold in the mincemeat.
- Pour the batter into the Bundt mould/tin (if you are using a metal tin, you’ll need to grease it with a little extra butter). Level with the back of the spoon and place in the oven to bake for 40-45min until golden and springy to touch.
- Allow to cool completely, then remove from the mould/tin and place on a serving plate.
- Make the icing by combining the icing sugar with your chosen liquid and drizzle over the top of the cooled cake, teasing it to drip down the sides.
- Decorate with mixed berries and a few sprigs of rosemary if you have them to hand and finish with a dusting of icing sugar.
- If you don’t have a sieve, wrap some icing sugar in a piece of muslin and shake over the top of the cake to dust it.
- If you’re worried about breaking the cake when removing from the silicone mould, place the entire thing in the freezer for a few hours or overnight. It should leave the mould with ease.
