I don't often use condensed mincemeat as an ingredient, but had a couple of packages of it from the winter holidays & used some here! What I did leave out were the glazed cherries (didn't have them), as well as the topping of powdered sugar! What I did do was to serve it topped with a barely sweet cherry sauce I'd just made! That said, what I ended up with was A VERY NICE MINCE CAKE, & one I'd be happy to make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Bargain Basement]
