This was a special request from a friend who randomly messaged me asking for cake. As that turned out to be such a spectacular fail, he came back to me and asked for this. I’d never heard of parkin before so I was keen to look it up and give it a go.
The spices are the star ingredients of parkin, as well as the porridge oats which gives it a great crumbly texture. Black treacle is key too, which I’ve never used before and was looking forward to trying.
