Sticky Parkin and a Log Fire.

It’s a stormy Saturday morning , the fire’s crackling and glowing in the wood burner  at Tythebarn House B&B,  the leaves on the Russ have turned the most glorious autumn colours,  the clocks have turned back and it’s time to bake Yorkshire Parkin.

There’s something comforting about the rhythm of recipes through the seasons, and this one, reminiscent of bonfire night as a child, fits with November.  We had a family bakery, so it was Dad who came home from work with the soft and sticky Parkin for tucking into after hot dogs around the bonfire.

This year mine has three days to mature before the 5th, when we wrap up warm, walk down to The Smithy Inn for the village display, then back to feast on Cake!  The slightly crisp top turns sticky and soft and the spices mellow and combine with treacle to give that unforgettable ‘bonfire night’ flavour.
