Ingredients
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • 400g mincemeat
  • 100g sultanas
  • 165g soft butter
  • 165g soft brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • Approx. 300g marzipan
  • 1 heaped teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160c.
  2. Put the first 6 ingredients into a bowl and mix together until combined.
  3. Spoon half into the prepared tin.
  4. Using your hands roll out the marzipan and make a round sausage to fit inside the tin, making sure you leave enough space around the edge for the cake mixture to cover the marzipan. Gently push the marzipan a little into the cake mixture.
  5. Cover with the remaining cake mixture and smooth down firmly.
  6. Sprinkle over the remaining brown sugar and flaked almonds.
  7. Bake for approx. 1hr and 30 mins until firm and a skewer comes out clean. Check after 1hr 15mins if your oven runs hot.
