Heritage Healthcare Yorkshire Parkin recipe

Since the winter has set in and the temperature has dropped, most of us turn to comfort food. Traditional Yorkshire Parkin is the perfect winter treat. This traybake, made from oats, black treacle and spiced with ginger, originated from the North of England and can be enjoyed with a nice hot cup of tea.

You will need:

  • 340g medium oatmeal
  • 170g self-raising flour
  • 2tsp ground ginger
  • 170g soft dark brown sugar
  • 170g butter
  • 225g golden syrup
  • 55g black treacle
  • 2 eggs
  • 120ml milk

To prepare:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees. Line a 30cm x 20cm tin baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together the oatmeal, flour and ginger in a large bowl.
  3. Melt the sugar, butter, syrup and treacle in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Pour the melted ingredients into the flour with the eggs and milk and stir well.
  4. Pour the mixture into the baking tin and bake for 45 minutes until brown but soft and sticky on the top.
  5. Reduce the oven down to 140 degrees Celsius and put back in the oven for a further 15 minutes.
