Lottie Shaw's seriously good Yorkshire Parkin cake is baked to their 100 year old family recipe. This unique ginger cake is baked using flour, oatmeal, black treacle and syrup.
One of the Seriously Good things about this Yorkshire Parkin is that the treacle in the recipe caramelises and hardens during baking, so before it leaves the bakery it is kept for a few days to allow it to 'come again' - this is where the caramel softens giving each piece the perfect crumbly stickiness.
There are various ways to enjoy Yorkshire Parkin cake. Spread it with a little butter and enjoy with a cup of tea, layer it with fresh strawberries and cream or eat it as a pudding with our delicious caramel sticky sauce.
The syrup preserves the Yorkshire Parkin cake for up to 12 weeks from baking.
This Yorkshire Parkin cake has been awarded a Great Taste Award.
