Mincemeat Matrimonial Cake

Updated on November 2, 2013

When I was a kid my mom made Matrimonial Cake a lot because it was easy to make but it could be changed up a bit. Sometimes she made it with the date filling and once in a while fresh strawberry preserves but my favorite was always the Mincemeat Matrimonial Cake.

This recipe was most often made around Christmas time because there was always plenty of mincemeat on hand because we also used to make mincemeat tarts.

This is a very easy recipe to make and doesn't have a lot of ingredients so if you aren't an experienced cook you will find that you can easily make this cake and it will turn out perfect every time.

Ingredients

  • Can or jar of mincemeat
  • 1 1/1 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup margarine (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Add flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add in the butter and using a fork or pastry cutter, mix all the ingredients together. It should be a little lumpy when finished.
  2. Put half of the mixer in an 8x8inch cake pan. Top with filling (mincemeat) and then the rest of the dry ingredients.
  3. Cook 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  4. If you want to change the filling you can make a date filling.
  5. Filling: Add 1 cup of dates and 2 cups water to and pan and add 1 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and cook together until the dates are incorporated into the water. Let the mixture cool and then use instead of the mincemeat for the filling.
