Ingredients

  • 250g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 420g light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • 330g plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tbsp ground mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • zest of 2 oranges
  • 400g vegetarian mincemeat

Step by step

Get ahead
The blondies keep for up to 5 days in an airtight container, or freeze well.
  1. Place the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat and melt until the milk solids have almost burnt and it has turned a deep amber colour. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5 and grease and line a traybake tin (about 23 x 30cm) with baking paper.
  3. Add the sugar to the melted brown butter, then crack in the eggs one at a time, stirring after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Tip in the flour, baking powder, salt, spices and orange zest and begin to fold. Finally, stir in the mincemeat.
  4. Tip the blondie mixture into the baking tin and spread evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and set (but not completely cooked through). Remove from the oven and leave in the tray until completely cool.
  5. Serve in chunks with huge scoops of ice cream, custard, or forget the add-ons and eat it by itself.
