Maggie's Tips

  • Check out IINH mincemeat recipe http://www.iinh.net/vegan-friendly-christmassy-mincemeat/
  • If you want to make this bread dairy free use 4 eggs instead of 2 and add in 100ml of soya yoghurt instead of buttermilk.
  • This is quite costly to make, so you might want to ration your slices.
