Parkin Cake Recipe
- oven to 160°C/140°F fan/gas 3 heat. A deep 22 cm square cake pan should be buttered and lined with parchment paper. With a fork, combine the milk and egg.
- In a big pan, gently heat the butter, treacle, syrup, and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Get rid of the heat. Oatmeal, flour, and ginger are combined, then the egg and milk are added while still stirring.
- Mixture should feel firm and have a slight crust on top after baking for 50 minutes to an hour. Wrap in extra foil and paper after cooling in the tin. If possible, wait up to five days before eating it since the longer you wait, up to two weeks, the softer and stickier it will get.
