Parkin is often associated with Yorkshire and is a popular treat consumed during Guy Fawkes Night. Variations of the cake can be traced back to as early as the 1600s. I use a British recipe that include treacle and golden syrup, and I carry on even further by milling and bolting heritage wheat to combine with the Scottish Oatmeal. The extra fuss makes for a rich ginger cake that keeps getting better as it ages. 4 generous squares.
