Traditional Recipes - Parkin

Treacle toffee and parkin are part of Bonfire Night in the North of England, especially in Yorkshire.

Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes night takes place on November 5th all over England - learn more about this centuries-old tradition by following our History and Heritage link.

The last tour of the LancasterAuthentic season coincides with Guy Fawkes Night, so why not experience it first hand! With a very leisurely pace on our walks, plenty to visit, a fantastic firework display behind the medieval Lancaster Castle, roaring is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas!


1 pound oatmeal
1 tablespoon baking-powder
1 desertspoon ginger powder
4 oz margarine or other fat
4 oz golden syrup

Sieve the oatmeal, ginger powder and baking-powder together twice. Rub in the fat. Mix to a stiff dough with warmed syrup. Place mixture in a greased bread tin and bake it. Leave it to cool before turning it out. Many folks leave the Parkin in a closed tin for a couple of days before eating it, cutting the parkin into slices as required.

Eat around the bonfire after piping hot "jacket" potatoes - accompany with some homemade treacle toffee!
