Serves
1 x 9” Bundt cake (12-16 portions)
Total Time
1 Hour
Ingredients
250g of unsalted butter, softened
250g of golden caster sugar
3 large eggs
275g of self-raising flour
200g of mincemeat
100g of icing sugar + extra for dusting
2 tbsp of water/almond essence/brandy
Mixed berries to decorate
Equipment
Large mixing bowl
Spatula or wooden spoon
Tablespoon
9in silicone bundt mould/tin
Sieve for dusting
Method
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan).
Step 2
In the large mixing bowl, using either the spatula or wooden spoon, cream together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy
Step 3
Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix until combined.
Step 4
Add in the flour and mix until no lumps remain, then using the tablespoon, fold in the mincemeat.
Step 5
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 40-45 minutes until golden and springy to touch.
Step 6
Allow to cool completely, then remove from the mould/tin and place on a serving plate.
Step 7
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.
Step 8
Decorate with mixed berries and a few sprigs of rosemary if you have them to hand and finish with a dusting of icing sugar.

TIPS: 
1. If you don’t have a sieve, wrap some icing sugar in piece of muslin and shake over the top of the cake to dust it.
2. 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 to firm up and then it should leave the mould with ease.
