“Although I'd previously posted a similar recipe, this one uses a store-bought cake mix, considerably simplifying the baking process! The recipe was found in the 1952 cookbook(let) 21 "NONE SUCH" Mince Meat Recipes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall (The title's longer than the booklet!), one of the cookbooks my great partner sent me in the current Cookbook Swap!”
