OK, so we don’t have mincemeat here in the stores in Bulgaria so I decided to prepare it by myself. I found some recipes online but I personalized and simplified the recipe a lot.

We bought mix of dried fruits around 300gr. I put them in a pot and heated them, added some orange juice, 50 ml of brandy and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. I cooked this on medium heat until the fruits became very soft. I left the mixture to cool.

So the next step was to make the mixture for the cake. I added all the ingredients except the flour and mixed them with a mixer. Then slowly and gradually add the flour until get a nice smooth mixture.

Prepare a cake baking form by oiling it and pour the mixture. Bake around 45 minutes or until ready – check with a toothpick.
