It’s time for a favourite traditional Yorkshire recipe
225g/8oz self raising flour
450g/1lb medium oatmeal
Leave the mixture overnight to let the oatmeal fully soak into the treacle.
It should be sticky and moist so don’t let the melting treacle, butter and sugar boil.
Parkin gets better i.e. stickier if you leave it a few days before eating. That's if you can wait until it’s cooled down out of the oven!
