Notes, tips, and variations
Variant: Parkin: "Parkin or Perkin is a soft cake traditionally made of oatmeal and molasses, which originated in Northern England. Often associated with Yorkshire, particularly the Leeds area, its precise origins are unclear, and it is made and enjoyed in other areas, such as Lancashire. Parkin is generally moist and even sometimes sticky. In Hull and East Yorkshire, it has a drier, more biscuit-like texture than in other areas. Parkin is traditionally eaten on Bonfire Night, but is also enjoyed year-round." (see Parkin Cake)
