My Mom's mincemeat cake/muffins
This is a really old recipe and I could use some help deciphering . It comes from Dewey, OK so I don't think I'm breaking any rules.
1 cup wesson oil mixed well with
2 cups sugar
1 small box mincemeat prepared as for pie(?)
1 cup buttermilk and 3 eggs with 1 tsp soda disolved in the mixture
2 cups flour
1 cup walnuts best
1 tsp salt, vanilla, cinnnamon cloves, nutmeg
bake in bundt pan 1 hour at 375
I never did the icing, but the icing is
1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 egg, 1/2 stick butter or oleo (isn't that cute?)
cook at any consistency you like and add 1/2 cup raisens and 1/2 cup nuts.
I think I can translate everything except the small box of mincemeat. I think I made this a couple of years ago with a jar of mincemeat.
Can anyone help me? I tried a mincemeat muffin recipe today and it is not like momma's.
Thank you and merry Christmas.
thank you for replying. I have to tell you I lost the recipe and this board just saved me. I had mom's recipe on my desktop and cannot find it. You answered my question and the post saved something important to me.
Thank you all and Merry Christmas. I now have it in my special cache.
Do you know what size bundt pan was used? My grandfather used to make Mincemeat squares using the condensed mincemeat, and I was too young to appreciated them. I do like mincemeat pie, and wish I would have written down my grandpaps recipe while he was still around. I will be trying this recipe, thanks.
The time I made it, I believe I used enough to make a pie and think I baked it in two bread pans. I don't like mincemeat and it was fabulous. I'm going to make it as muffins tomorrow using a regular jar of made of mincemeat (enough to make a pie.)
I'll let you guys know how it turns out.
