Easy Frosted Mincemeat Cake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by duke1981

This was so easy to make, and the raves never stopped! Could not beleive that this was possible, since I usually make tarts and pies with mincemeat. Definetly something different in cakes!

ABSOLUTELY GREAT CAKE, & so easy to put together ~ The recipe is a definite keeper! I did leave out of the optional rum flavoring, but included the extract since I used a jar of mincemeat that didn't have that included! I still like eating mince pie, but this cake will be a nice change of pace from time to time! Thanks, much for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Bargain Basement]
