last minute fruit mince crumble slice (gluten free option)

Many years ago I found a recipe for fruit mince slice and made it every year, then I lost the recipe and tried to wing it and then I went back to making fruit mince pies each year and then this year I found a similar recipe for fruit mince slice. So here it is. Super easy, I made mine with white wings gluten free flour but you can use regular self raising flour. It’s delicious and quick enough to make that you could grab all of the ingredients tomorrow and whip it up on Christmas Day. I made my own fruit mince for this recipe – loosely following a variation of this recipe and leaving me plenty of fruit mixture for a delicious fruit cake to go into my oven tomorrow. Oh my gosh I just remembered I still have frozen turkey to take out of the freezer.

Total time
Serves: 10
What you'll need
  • 165g raw sugar or caster sugar
  • 225g self raising flour ( I used gluten free)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 165g cold butter, cubed
  • ⅓ cup flaked almonds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar fruit mince or 1½ cups homemade fruit mince
  • icing sugar to finish
  1. Place raw sugar in TM bowl and process 10 seconds, speed 9.
  2. Alternatively start with caster sugar, add in flour, cinnamon and rub in the butter.
  3. If you have a thermomix then add in flour, spice and process 5 seconds speed 5. Add in butter and process for 1 minute on speed 4 until it resembles breadcrumbs
  4. Now remove 1 heaped cup of this mixture. To this cup add in the almonds and mix with your hands so that you have a crumbly buttery topping. And set aside for later.
  5. For the base add an egg to your mixing bowl with the original butter flour mixture and process in the thermomix for 20 seconds speed 4 until you have a nice smooth batter for your base. You can do this with a wooden spoon or mixer.
  6. Spread into a lined lamington tin, top with fruit mince then crumble the topping mixture over the top
  7. Bake for about 30-35 minutes until lightly golden on top in a 180 degrees oven
  8. Remove from oven and leave to cool in tin
  9. Dust with icing sugar when serving. Great on a dessert platter or served warm with ice cream or custard.

    Oh yummo! I have just made Retrodaddy’s Rockyroad….was the old recipe you had from The family circle with Rice flour in it? I have it If you want it

  3. I made a fruit mince slice this year instead of making pies – i think I might have your recipe and I believe it would be an easy transition to gluten free. Ping me if you would like to have a copy.
