Old-fashioned parkin

At Beamish they were making Parkin the old-fashioned way:

Fabulous coal range .... and did you notice the bread oven to the right? If you want to make Parkin - a kind of north country flapjack - just mix the ingredients together, shape the biscuits (or spread into a tin to cut into squares when it's cooled), and bake in a hot oven. Mmm

Ooh, thanks! Must try this one :) I keep forgetting what the treacle in the cupboard is for, so this will do instead.

We lived near Beamish Museum when I was small. I used to believe that you stepped back in time when you went there not realising that it was just people dressed up.

The ones in the picture were really good Emma, so definitely worth a try, especially if you've already got the treacle

Amanda, that made me chuckle - so funny what children think without the grown-ups realising they didn't explain very well :)
