Collections through Cake: Yorkshire Parkin

To celebrate the opening of the new 'Snapshot of Yorkshire' exhibtion at Abbey House Museum, our Site Development Officer Gemma looked into our collections for a recipe for Yorkshire Parkin!

We have a lovely book from 1878 full of handwritten recipes that belonged to Mary Elston.

The recipe shown is for a delicious-sounding Lemon Pudding! The parkin recipe involves a whopping 2 pounds of treacle!  It goes without saying that it was beautifully delicious.

 Have you made your own parkin? What's your favourite recipe?
