White Christmas cake with mincemeat recipe (1952)
1 pkg. Swans Down White Cake Mix
1 cup milk
3/4 cup moist mincemeat [See what’s in mincemeat & get some here]
Place cake mix in bowl. Add 1/2 cup of milk. Blend; beat 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup more milk, blend; beat 1 minute. Add remaining 1/4 cup milk; beat 1 minute longer.
Fold in mincemeat. Pour batter into two round 8-inch layer pans, 1-1/4 inches deep, lined on bottoms with paper.
Bake in moderate oven (375 F.) 20 to 25 minutes, or until done.
Cool in pans 10 minutes. Turn out on cake racks to finish cooling.
Prepare 7-minute frosting (get the recipe here), using 2 egg whites. Fold in 1/2 cup drained mincemeat.
Place one cake layer; bottom side up, on cake plate; spread with frosting. Place second layer on top, bottom side down. When layers are arranged this way, mincemeat forms filling in center. Spread frosting on top and sides.
