Mincemeat Cake

Querencia | Jan 23, 202104:22 PM     7

Now after the holidays we may find mincemeat marked way down in price (at my store it went from $9 a jar to $2.25) so this is the time to bake this cake that takes a whole jar. It is elegant; I have it in the oven right now. Cream 3/4 cup butter with 1 cup sugar and the grated rind of an orange. Work in 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp nutmeg, and 3 eggs. Add a 27-oz jar of mincemeat then use 1/4 cup dark rum to rinse out the jar. Add 3 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp soda, 3/4 tsp salt, and 3 tsp baking powder. (Recipe does not call for nuts but I don't see why not.) Bake at 350* for an hour or nearly. A big cake---makes either a Bundt or a 9 x 13 rectangle.
