This screams Holidays to me.. I realize mincemeat is an aquired taste, but if you're like me and enjoy it during the cooler weather, this might just be the recipe for you.

Excellent cake. Not too sweet. The addition of the eggnog topping is inspired. The cake can stand alone, but if you like eggnog, go for the topping! To crumble the mincemeat, I broke it up and put it in the food processor with a little of the cake mix. Worked very well, with an even distribution of the mincemeat. Thnx for posting this great holiday cake. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
