As promised, here is my recipe for mincemeat muffins. I baked a batch this afternoon ready for coffee with our neighbours tomorrow morning. While they are delicious warm, they taste just as good cold. This recipe is so easy I’m sure you’ll want to try it even if you “don’t like mincemeat”. My hubby is one of those people who claim to dislike mincemeat, but he certainly does like these muffins!

Sift together 1- 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl.

Beat together in a separate bowl: 1/2 cup butter, melted,  1/2 cup of apple cider (or apple juice), and 2 eggs. Stir this liquid mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened. The batter will be lumpy.

Finally add 1 cup of mincemeat and stir until blended.

Divide the batter into paper lined muffin tins. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 23 minutes.

This recipe is supposed to make one dozen muffins. For some reason I only manage to get eleven!
