Any Excuse for Shortcake

We’ve had a pretty healthy week here, with lots of exercise and lots of healthy food. That’s left us both wanting to bake treats, and we’ve both got our excuses. Mine is that the mincemeat from Christmas needs using up :)

So I’m making my old  school’s shortcake with a layer of mincemeat in the middle. Except there wasn’t enough for the whole tray, so I found some strawberry jam in the fridge and used that for the other half.


I then topped the mincemeat side with demerara sugar, and the jam side with desiccated coconut.
