As the weather grows colder and the leaves slowly start to turn shades of amber red and orange, you know it's almost time for Bonfire night to take place. Of course, besides fireworks, if you are going to hold a true bonfire night, you are going to need to know how to make a great Parkin cake. After all, half the fun of a bonfire night party is the sweet treats after the fireworks have ended!
OK so it may be the 13TH of November now, but lets face it fireworks and bonfire night parties do tend to go on a bit, mostly throughout the whole month of November, in fact I can hear some fireworks going off right now as I blog. If you follow this delicious Parkin cake recipe originally from Yorkshire (I think), you’ll be on your way to filling your party goers plates and stomachs in no time! Ingredients: (note that 1 cup = approx 16 TBSP – I can't quite remember the metric)
Tip: If you make your Parkin cake a few days before you plan to eat it at your bonfire party, it will be easier to cut into squares since it is usually quite sticky when first made.
