This is really rather nice................. :)
6 oz butter
6 oz sugar
6 oz self raising flour
5 dessert spoonfuls of mincemeat
1 egg's worth or thereabouts of whisky
1 dried bean
Prepare a standard loaf tin (2 lb size), by buttering and flouring. Cream butter with sugar until fluffy, then beat in eggs. Add rest of ingredients, beat until well combined. Turn into prepared tin and hide the dried bean in the middle of it. Bake in a hot oven for 40 -45 minutes until well risen and dark golden brown; turn out and cool on wire rack.
Warn eaters of presence of bean!
This turned out really nicely - you can really taste the whisky, and the mincemeat was used in the spirit of Use It Up January!
