These Little Mince Pie Cakes are a regular bake over the festive period. It's a great variation to the traditional mince pie and made with your home-made mincemeat will taste even better. These always go down a treat with everyone, especially my hubby!
Little Mince Pie Cakes

175g softened butter
2 tbsp milk
about 140g mincemeat (I used my home-made mincemeat)
icing sugar , for dusting
Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Line 12 bun tins with paper cases. Put the flour, sugar, spice, butter, eggs and milk into a mixing bowl and beat with an electric hand whisk or wooden spoon for 2-3 mins, until the mix is light and fluffy.
Put a spoonful of cake mix in each case, then a rounded tsp of mincemeat. Cover the mincemeat with a spoonful of cake mix and smooth.
Bake for 15-18 mins until golden brown and firm. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or cold.
