Bonfire night special - Tea and Cake Combo
To make a change from our regular coffee and cake combo we’ve found a delicious tea and cake combination that is the perfect pairing for bonfire night.
Bonfire Night Special
Yorkshire Parkin Ginger Cake
The traditional Yorkshire Parkin cake is a must for any bonfire night celebration. We love it with a milky Twinings Earl Grey tea.
If you’re unfamiliar with Parkin then you have to try this deliciously moist and spicy ginger cake recipe. It is best to make this cake a day or so before your party, letting it firm up before serving but we guarantee it will be a winner with friends and family!

How to make Yorkshire Parkin
Preheat the oven to 140c/ Gas Mark 1 (120c for fan assisted ovens). Grease a 8inch square cake tin and line with greaseproof paper.
Gently melt the butter, sugar, treacle and golden syrup on a low heat, making sure it doesn't bubble. Once melted together remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Gradually add the melted butter and fold together. Slowly pour in the beaten eggs and milk until combined.
Pour into your your lined cake tin and bake for 1 1/2 hours. You will need to check it periodically to make sure it is not too dry.
Remove from the oven and leave in the tin to cool fo 20 minutes. Remove from the tin and let it cool completely before covering in greaseproof paper. Store in a cake tin for a minimum of one day (no longer than a week) to firm before you cut it.
We hope you enjoy your homemade traditional Parkin this bonfire night!
