Mincemeat & Marzipan Bake

23 Dec

I made this a couple of days ago, modifying a recipe to suit my own requirements.


Jar of Mincemeat (it’s really worth paying a bit extra for a luxury one!)
Runny Honey
Marizpan (to roll out for cutting out pieces) 150 g / 5 oz
Butter 150g / 5oz
Self Raising Flour 300 g / 10 oz
Golden Sugar 75 g / 3 oz
Cold Water 2 – 3 tbsp
Milk 2 tbsp


Square Baking Tin
Cookie Cutters
Rolling Pin


Preheat the oven Gas 4 / 180 C / Fan 160 C.
Make breadcrumbs with rubbing the butter and flour until they resemble “breadcrumbs”.
Add and mix the sugar, water and milk to form dough.
On a floured surface roll out the dough to fit a 12 inch square baking tin. Don’t forget to grease the tin with butter first! (I lined my tin with foil which I greased).
Spread the mincemeat over the dough, and then drizzle runny honey over that.
Again on a floured surface to prevent sticking, roll out the marzipan and cut out what shapes you desire: I had fun choosing Scotty dogs, angels and holly leaves. Decorate the mincemeat with the marzipan shapes and bake for about 35 minutes, until the marzipan is golden. When cooled, cut into slices and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
