This is a recipe I used when I had a winter lodge. It was popular on cold winter mornings, especially when they were still warm and the butter melted into them. Any prepared mincemeat will do but I prefer the non alcoholic for this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well.
  2. In a seperate bowl stir the apple juice and eggs into the melted butter, beat well.
  3. Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry mixture.
  4. Add the mincemeat and stir in until moistened.
  5. Spoon into a greased muffin pan and add 1 tsp of the sugar/rum mix on top of the batter.
  6. Bake in a 375F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Although I do, on occasion, use a rum-&-brandy mincemeat, I didn't use it this time instaed using a jar of the plain None Such! DEFINITELY LOVED THESE MUFFINS, especially with this combo of spices, & plan on making them again in another week using some homemade mince & perhaps including the subar-&-rum topping as well! A wonderful keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

I like mincemeat pie, so I thought I'd try this recipe. These turned out fruity good. I did not make the sugar/rum topping since I'm taking these to church in the morning. Made 23 smaller muffins. Thank you for posting.
