Mincemeat Tea Cake recipe

This simple cake recipe combines tasty mincemeat with classic cake ingredients to make a gently spiced and delicately flavoured cake that's perfect for having with a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon. Cut the cake into slices and then spread with butter to serve.


  • 550g mincemeat
  • 250g plain flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 50ml orange juice
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a loaf tin.

  2. Mix together the mincemeat, vegetable oil, orange juice, lemon juice and the egg. Stir in the sugar, then sieve in the flour, baking powder and salt.

  3. Stir well until you have a smooth mixture. Pour into the cake tin and then bake for 1 hour.

  4. Cool the cake in the tin and then serve once cooled.

You could also serve this cake warm - just place a few slices in a toaster or until the grill and then when you spread them with butter, the butter will melt into the cake, enhancing the sweet flavours.
