Wholemeal Mincemeat Slices

When I was introduced to this recipe I fell in love with them. I love mincemeat and this is going to be traditionally made in my family from this year on wards.

  • 150g butter or quality margarine
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • 225g plain wholemeal flour
  • 110g porridge oats
  • Approx 225g mincemeat, about 1/2 a large jar


You’ll need a 11 x 7 inch shallow baking tin, butter well
Melt the butter and sugar in a pan, 
Once melted allow to cool slightly, then add your oats and flour.
Stir and mix thoroughly. 
Press half of this mixture firmly in the base of the tin, the firmer you press the better. 
Spread your mincemeat on top of the base coat smooth with a spoon.
Pour on the top and gain level across the tin and press down firmly. 
Bake in a pre heated oven  at 200C for approx 20 minutes or the top is browned slightly. 
Cut into desired pieces whilst still in the tin.
Cool in the tin fully and serve sprinkled with icing sugar. Store in an airtight tin.


Thank you so much Lancashire Food for sharing the recipe with us for our advent calendar.
