A bit late, but it got baked this afternoon.
This is the first of two. One for my parents and one for me.
The second one will have 3 table spoons of brandy and 1 of calvados as the brandy is running low.
Mince pies and Xmas cake are matters of great importance to my Dad. Apparently, Grandma used to have mince pies warming on the hearth when he got home from school before Christmas.
