    Irmgard's Note:

    I made this cake one year for Christmas when I was short of time and wasn't able to make a pie. It was a big hit. It is a very moist cake best served with just a dusting of icing sugar for garnish.

      Delicious! I used homemade green tomato mincemeat (I never made it before and wasn't sure what to do with it - a pie I made was not such a great success), and added a generous shot of rum. It was a big hit! Thanks for sharing.

      This cake is delicious. It's almost identical to Canadian Living's Mincemeat Bundt Cake. The major difference is that the CL recipe calls for 2 cups of mincemeat instead of 3. Three cups seemed like a lot and I was worried that the cake might be too moist, but since I was trying to use up a 750 ml jar of it, I used the full 3 cups and am glad I did. The texture was just right....moist but not wet, with a tender crumb. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves to tweak the flavour. The spices were well balanced and not overpowering. The cake tested done at 58 minutes in a bundt pan. It's best made the day before serving. I added a caramel frosting. Tested the cake served at room temperature and also warmed slightly, and most people preferred it warmed slightly. The mincemeat taste seemed a bit enhanced, and the cake had a richer taste.
