Holiday Mincemeat Cake with Eggnog Rum Sauce
Recipe courtesy of Marsha Robinsosn of Newberg, OR, for the Holiday Cakes Cook-Off
I wanted to start a new tradition with my family. I love mincemeat, and this cake is a way to share that enjoyment with my friends and family[. Since I was a working mother, I also wanted to create a dessert that was convenient. I am now asked for the recipe every time I make it.]
Prepare cake mix according to package directions, except reduce the water by 1/4 cup. After mixing, fold in the mincemeat and nuts.
Bake 35 to 40 min. Cake is done with toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
Let cool 5 min. Run a knife around edge of pan and invert onto serving plate.
