Ingredients

For the pastry

  • 250g plain flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 125g unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • 60g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt flakes
  • 2 British Blacktail Free Range Large Egg yolks
  • 1 tsp Essential Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp milk, cold

For the frangipane

  • 200g unsalted butter, cubed, room temperature
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 3 British Blacktail Free Range Large Eggs
  • 1 large orange, scrubbed, finely grated zest
  • 200g ground almonds
  • 50g self-raising flour
  • 300g mincemeat
  • Thick double cream or crème fraîche, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. For the pastry, rub together the flour, butter, icing sugar and salt until the mix looks like fine crumbs. Make a well in the middle. Whisk together the egg yolks, vinegar and milk, add to the bowl, then mix, push and press together into a disc 2-3cm thick. Wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.

  2. For the pastry, rub together the flour, butter, icing sugar and salt until the mix looks like fine crumbs. Make a well in the middle. Whisk together the egg yolks, vinegar and milk, add to the bowl, then mix, push and press together into a disc 2-3cm thick. Wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6, with a baking tray on a shelf in the upper-middle of the oven. Line the pastry case with baking parchment, fill with baking beans or rice, then bake on the tray for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and contents, then bake for 10 minutes more until the pastry is pale golden. Use a sharp knife to trim the pastry, then cool to room temperature. Turn the oven down to 170ºC, gas mark 3.

  4. For the filling, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs 1 at a time, ensuring each is incorporated before adding the next. Fold in the orange zest, almonds and flour. Spread the mincemeat over the pastry case, spoon the frangipane on top, then smooth and level with a palette knife. Bake for 1 hour, or until golden, slightly domed and springy to touch. Serve warm or cold, with double cream or crème fraîche, if liked.

Cook’s tip

Use a processor to rub the mix together in step 1, or use ready-made shortcrust pastry. Just begin the recipe at step 2.
