A very simple cake to make, and fairly quick. Sue McMahon, Woman's Weekly cookery editor, gives her recipe for this dish. Follow along in the easy step-by-step video.


  • 300g (10oz) plain flour
  • 200g (7oz) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 100g packet ground almonds
  • 100g (31/2oz) caster sugar
  • Pinch Salt
  • 410g jar mincemeat
  • 50g (13/4oz) flaked almonds
  • Icing sugar for dusting
  • 18 x 28cm (7 x 11in) traybake tin, lined with baking parchment


  • Set the oven to Gas mark 4 or 180°C.

  • Tip the flour into the bowl of a food processor and add the cubed butter, ground almonds, caster sugar and salt. Whizz the mixture starts to bind together. Alternatively, tip the ingredients into a bowl and rub the butter into the flour.

  • Tip about ¾ mixture into the base of the lined tin and spread it out well and then press it down very firmly.

  • Spread the mincemeat in an even layer over the top.

  • Mix the flaked almonds into the remaining mixture and then scatter this over the top of the mincemeat, and press it down lightly.

  • Bake the traybake in the centre of the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the topping is a light golden colour.

  • Remove the traybake from the oven and leave it to cool in the tin.

  • Use the lining paper to help lift the traybake out onto a cutting board. Dust icing sugar over the top and then cut the traybake into 12-14 fingers.
