Had another one of those grey wintery days that we get so many of and decided to bake something warm. Mr Debs won't eat cake so plumped for Parkin as it's quite squishy ( not that he'll eat it anyway - I can see his face gurning at the very thought of this already - who cares, you can't please all the people eh??)
225g/8oz Self raising flour
110g/4oz caster sugar
2 Tspn Ground ginger
1 Tspn Bicarbonate of soda
200mls/7 fl oz milk
110g/4oz Golden Syrup
Preheat oven to 150c/ 300f/ Gas 2
Line a cake tin ( 8 inch)
Sieve flour Bicarb and ginger into bowl
Gently heat butter and syrup in a small pan and stir into dry mix.
Mix milk and Golden syrup together and mix into batter
Pour into lined tin and pop into oven for 1 hour.
When coolish cut into squares.
Looks a bit burnt but it's just the lighting. This tastes lovely - slightly sticky while still warm. Still nice a couple of days later.
