This Mincemeat Loaf Cake is moist and fruity as well as packed full of festive flavours and wonderful spices. It is super easy to make and a huge crowd pleaser.
Preheat your oven to 160 C (140 fan)/325F/Gas Mark 3
Beat your 2 eggs and 150 grams sugar together until the mixture pales and thickens. I use my free standing mixer but a hand held electric mixer will do the job well. If you are using a wooden spoon and mixing bowl then it will be difficult for you to beat the two together to the same degree as the machines. Just do your best.
Add 300 grams mincemeat in and mix again until completely incorporated.
Add 225 grams of flour and repeat the mixing.
Finally add in 150 grams melted butter and mix until that too is completely mixed in to your cake batter.
Empty out your batter into your 2 lb cake tin. It measures 22 cm long - 11 cm wide - 7 cm deep. I either grease and flour it or use a paper loaf tin liner.
Smooth the batter level in your tin.
Bake for 40-50 minutes until it is firm to the careful touch and a cocktail stick comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
When the cake is cool mix 120 grams icing sugar and 2 tbsps water together and spoon onto the top of the cake. Allow to set for an hour before slicing.
