Recipe of the Month Parkin


This is a super tasty Halloween or Bonfire Night treat


Serves 12 Preparation time 20 minutes Cooking time 25-30 minutes Ingredients


225g plain flour 2 level tsp ground ginger 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda ½ level tsp salt 225g medium oatmeal 115g black treacle 115g golden syrup 115g soft light-brown sugar 115g butter 150ml milk 1 egg - beaten


Method


Preheat the oven to 180C / Gas mark 4. Grease and line a 30cm x 25cm x 5cm tin with non- stick baking paper. I have a 30cm round tin which, though not traditional, works just as well.


Sift the flour, ground ginger, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl. Stir in the oatmeal and make a well in the centre.


Put the treacle, golden syrup, butter and sugar into a saucepan and heat gently until the butter has melted.

Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and the beaten egg. Add to the dry ingredients and beat thoroughly.


Pour into your chosen tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30minutes until firm, and a skewer inserted into the Parkin comes out clean.


Leave to cool in the tin. When cold wrap in greaseproof paper and store in a airtight tin.


This really does improve in flavour after a few days maturing so make it in advance and hide it!


Cut into squares or slices for serving.
