A Recipe for Yorkshire Parkin
110g (4 oz) dark brown soft sugar 
110g (4 oz) butter 
125 (4 1/4 oz) black treacle 
1 egg 
140ml (1/4 pint) milk 
225g (8 oz) plain flour 
225g (8 oz) medium oatmeal 
1 teaspoon ground ginger 
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 
Prep: 15 mins | Cook: 1 hour | Extra time: 4 days 22 hours 45 mins


1.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20x30cm baking tin.


2.
Melt the sugar, butter and treacle over low heat.


3.
Beat the egg well and, off the heat, add to the syrup mix with half of the milk.


4.
Combine the flour, oatmeal and ginger in a bowl and pour into the treacle mixture.


5.
Dissolve the bicarb in the remaining milk and add to the rest of the mixture. Stir well, then tip into the prepared tin.


6.
Bake until the cake tests done when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (about 1 hour). For best flavour, keep in an airtight container for at least 5 days before serving.

Recipe found here. The picture of Parkin is the Yorkshire Parkin I bought from Cooplands in the White Rose Shopping Centre on Saturday and not a homemade one :P
