Mini Christmas Mincemeat Loaves

Whether you make your own mincemeat or use shop bought, these mini loaves are both delicious and simple to make. I bought these mini loaf cases from Ebay but you can make them in cupcake cases instead, or one large loaf (just adjust the cooking time accordingly).

If you want to make your own mincemeat I have a very popular Chocolate Mincemeat recipe here, or a regular mincemeat below - just add your favourite dried fruits. I use vegetable suet which makes any recipes that I use it in suitable for vegetarians.

Mincemeat

1kg mixed dried fruit (I used currants, raisins, sultanas & cranberries)
200ml dark rum (this can be replaced by tea if you prefer)
200g suet
300g demerara sugar
1 tbsp mixed spice
1.5 tbsp cinnamon
  • Mix all the dried fruit together & pour over the rum
  • Cover and leave to soak overnight
  • Once the fruit has soaked overnight, stir in the suet, sugar & spices
  • Mix well & pack into sterilised jars
