Homemade Mincemeat

So Christmas is just around the corner as we all know (only 49 sleeps to go!) and I thought I’d make my own mincemeat to get into the festive spirit!

Gianduja Cupcakes

I bought this book from Amazon a little while ago and it absolutely had me desperate to bake with the delicious recipes in there. I’d never heard of Peggy Porschen before and boy, have I missed out! There are 25 recipes and I cannot wait to try out all of them. Sticky Toffee, Pecan Pie, Sugar Plum, Mulled Wine and Salted Caramel have all caught my eye.

I chose to make the ones titled Gianduja – partly because I thought the name was interesting and partly because I haven’t had Nutella in a long time and these cupcakes gave me a ready made excuse to buy some!
