Yorkshire Parkin

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.

Banana and Mixed Fruit Flapjacks

Another team meeting at work = another bake to bring along with me. I’ve got a reputation to uphold – the clinical manager is even thinking of making us have these meetings twice a month instead of once because he’s getting so fond of my treats! I have been baking up an absolute storm recently so I searched to try and find a healthy recipe for flapjacks.

I think I did a good job of keeping them healthy and delicious, just look at those ingredients up there, are you drooling already!?
