Welcome to my latest Gluten and Dairy Free Christmas Mincemeat Loaf.

I feel a bit sorry for my dad and brother-in-law – they both have birthdays close to Christmas and I always make them seasonal themed cakes.  This one we enjoyed on my brother-in-law’s birthday and Dad’s marble cake recipe is coming up next week.

Think of this loaf cake as a very light version of fruit cake.  I’ve used a basic loaf sponge recipe and folded in a few tablespoons of Christmas mincemeat.  It gives you that lovely warm fruity spiced flavour without being too heavy.  It was a hit with the family including my two year old niece and I think it will become a seasonal favourite in my family.
