the question mark after the Parkin you may ask?
moment and what I have baked is definitely not parkin. Parkins are North English form of ginger
bread. I left out the most important ingredient ginger not because I don’t have
it my people do not like ginger much. So it is more of a cake than a parkin.
whole story began When Susan of a The Well-Seasoned Cook put up this beautiful
picture of Yorkshire Parkin I flipped.
did not see the name of the post I just straight away bookmarked it. Then the
print out was hanging as a notice on fridge just waiting for me to just make
on Sunday I made it. And was it yummy.
course I made changes here is the original yummy recipe.
was so yummy before I could make the topping it was over. So next time I will
make 2 of this so that I can peacefully try the icing.
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon powder (next time I will use 1 tsp)
use about 3 tsp)+ 1 tsp for dusting on top (optional)
1 cup quick-cooking oats (also known as thin oats)
1 cup milk + 1 cup more (if needed)
4 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
½ cup golden syrup
½ cup honey
powder and chilli powder.
thick I added a little milk.
bake for 30 minutes. You may bake it till the cake is slightly brown or the
knife comes out clean.
