Gaby's Bakery - Frangipane Mincemeat Traybake

Continuing with Michael's 'value' theme, here's a recipe to use up any jars of mincemeat from the Christmas celebrations. Waste not, want not, and you will love these.

Frangipane Mincemeat Traybake

Ingredients

For the pastry:
90g plain flour
40g unsalted cold diced butter
1½ tbsp water

Filling:
280g mincemeat

For the frangipane:

100g unsalted 100g caster sugar
75g ground almonds
45g plain
2 eggs
Zest of 1 small orange
¼ tsp almond extract

Flakes almonds to top Icing to dust

Method

Preheat oven to 160c fan. Grease and line a 25x16cm baking tray.

For the pastry:


In a bowl using your fingertips, rub the flour and butter together until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the water and mix until you have a soft dough. Roll this out on a lightly floured surface until it is a rectangle appx 3mm thick. Lay this pastry on the bottom of the prepared tray.

Spread the mincemeat on top of the pastry so it's an even layer.

For the frangipane:
In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs and continue to beat. Add the flour, ground almonds, orange zest and vanilla and mix until everything is just incorporated. Spread this evenly on top of the mincemeat.

Scatter some flaked almonds over the top and place in the oven for appx 28-30 mins. The top will go a light golden brown and it will be firm touch. Take out the oven, allow to cool for a few mins and then fully cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar before eating.

Enjoy.
