The parkin will keep for 5-7 days in an airtight container, layered with baking paper – not foil, which the cake will stick to.

  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl, then mix in the sugar, oats, ginger and bicarbonate of soda.
  3. In a small pan, gently bring the milk to the boil with the syrup and butter until melted then, with a whisk, beat the liquid into the dry ingredients.
