I love finding new ways to use up mincemeat, there’s only so many mince pies you can make, and our latest creation is a Mincemeat Crumble Cake. This delicious loaf cake is a lovely, crumbly fruit cake that has all the taste of Christmas in it. It’s great for using up leftover mincemeat or just making over the festive season.

How do you make a Mincemeat Crumble Loaf Cake?

This old fashioned mincemeat cake recipe is simple to make with butter, flour, sugar, eggs, milk and mincemeat. If you don’t have butter you can use margarine or any kind of low fat spread. We also use self raising flour but you can use plain flour and a little baking powder or baking soda if you prefer.

We use whatever sugar we have to hand for this bake. Caster sugar is our usual go to but you can use golden caster sugar, light brown sugar or even granulated sugar. The mincemeat can be homemade or from a jar – whatever you have – and the milk adds a little more moisture which is soaken up by the dried fruit.

This easy mincemeat cake is a lovely crumbly fruit cake but if you’d like it to be more moist, add a little more milk to the mix. You can also add a tsp mixed spice to give it some extra flavour but I love the simple mincemeat flavours.

This cake is wonderfully moreish and is lovely to have in the afternoon with a cup of tea or shared during a festive social gathering. It would also be lovely tied up in baking paper and string and given as a festive gift!
