This is great served on a cold, wintry day. Use any kind of mincemeat, purchased or homemade, and serve with butter or cream cheese.

This is without a doubt one of the best recipes I have found on the 'net! It is so simple to make which on a scale of one to ten gets an 11 rating from me. I like recipes that are simple and easy. My compliments to the chef! Read More

This is a good idea but the suggested pan is too big (my loaf came out squat) and the length of baking too long (loaf was dry). Probably a 4 1/2 by 8 1/2 pan would be better and 55 or even 50 minutes bake time. Maybe adding soaked raisins or a chopped fresh apple would help with the dryness too. As is I'll use it for snacking instead of giving it as a present. Read More

This bread is fabulous! Everyone loves it and is asking for me to make it again. I was looking for a mincemeat recipe because my mom loves it and nobody else does... well that was before they tasted this bread. I made it in mini loaves and gave out for gifts. I put it at the top of my favorites list! Read More

This recipe is everything you will want it to be very good and easy. The dough looked very dry for a loaf - I used a jar of mincemeat which was less moist than normal I think - but it baked up just right in an hour. Good with margarine or on its own because the chunks of mincemeat add moistness. Try it it's so easy! Read More

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I used homemade mincemeat and since it all had orange peel and juice in it and didn't add anymore. I did jazz the mincemeat up with a TB of whiskey and I drizzled a vanilla/orange glaze over the top. I also sprinkled the top of the loaf with finely chopped mixed nuts before I glazed it. This is well worth making over and over again and a great gift idea!! Read More

First time I used this recipe; quick and easy. Cooked in 65 min perfectly! Used Borden's jarred mincemeat which gave great moisture to the cake. My husband doesn't like mincemeat and he loved this bread! Enjoy! Read More

Very Good and Very Easy. Makes the most of mince meat. Followed recipe plus added a couple TBL.s of cocoa pdr. I think it would have tasted just as good w/o the cocoa. Will make again. Would make wonderful small loaves for holiday gifting. Realllly good.. add a hot cuppa coffee or tea..and you're set.:) Thank you for posting this recipe. Read More

This bread had a great flavor. Kind of like a good fruit cake. However I cooked it for the full hour and the middle was still very doughy. That was disappointing but I will try the recipe again! FYI: I used canned ready-to-use mincemeat. Read More

The loaf turned out very moist. I would make it again but cut back on the spices just a little. Read More
