Any regular reader will know that I love finding alternative ways to use mincemeat and my latest creation is this mincemeat slice tray bake. It has all the flavours of Christmas mince pies but feels like a much more decadent bake and makes a nice change from making mince pies over the festive season.

Mince pie slices are something I would happily eat through the spring summer autumn winter. It’s a shame I can only buy mincemeat through December!

I’ve got used to buying a couple of extra jars at Christmas just so that I can enjoy all the festive flavours at the start of the new year too. I love the fruit, the mixed spice and the pastry and cake combination of this slice recipe. It’s so moreish and one the whole family love.

How do you slice this Mincemeat Slice?

When the traybake cake comes out of the oven it has a rustic unfinished edge to it. I slice the edges off before cutting the cake into prettier slices and we then have that served with custard for a really homely and easy dessert, a great crumble alternative!

This recipe can be made in a food processor or by hand like with all our baking recipes. I love using the mixer as it cuts down the time involved but I always fold the ground almonds in by hand, making sure enough air stays in the mix. Once baked, it keeps well in an airtight container for a few days.
