I forgot to say that my OH used two yogurt pots for the treacle and syrup, he put them on the scales first to make it easier.

well I hope it turns out o.k. for you who make it, I am a dab hand if I may so so at cooking and baking but Parkin is one thing I cannot get right, used my Mother in laws recipe which was full proof, it was still a flop, so I just gave up trying to master it, not tried making it for years now. so good luck all.

Ah Ha , thanks for the recipe Yorkshire , I will have a go at making it myself :o)

What is a fan oven Yorkshire? Would it be what we call a convection oven I wonder? And I am assuming that the 140 and 130 are degrees celsius? My oven is in Farenheit so I'll hve to convert.

25 Nov, 2010

 

Hi Gilli, my husband said that 140 degrees celcius = 275 Farenheit, and yes a fan oven is a convection oven, hope this helps,

my wall double oven has a conventional oven at the top and a fan oven at the bottom , I always still have to stop to think about the temp . the Parkin is safely tucked up in the top Conventional one and smelling gorgeous ,I can't wait to see what it turns out like .. :-)

25 Nov, 2010

 

I do hope its a success, I would like to see it also, and I know my OH would Amy,

25 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks to your hubby Yorks. I have a little convection oven as well as the conventional one so no worries.

25 Nov, 2010

27 Nov, 2010

You stirred me into doing some cooking so I've made a granary loaf. Nearly forgot to take it out of the oven too as I was chatting on the phone. WHOOPS!!

27 Nov, 2010

27 Nov, 2010

27 Nov, 2010

 

watch him Lin, he will want to trade you for car tyre plant pots.

28 Nov, 2010

 

Car tire planters are at least better than ones made out of old toilets!! LOL

28 Nov, 2010

 

your right there gilli, old toilets, how awful

28 Nov, 2010

 

Looks terrible Yorks....Can't imagine why anyone would want them in their gardens.

29 Nov, 2010

 

Just bog standard plant pots I expect. LOL. Now..... as far as bread goes I cheat and use the Wrights bread mixes and they come out super,,,,,,,they do a range of different loaves as well. They also do a ginger cake mix that I add stem ginger to and a fudge chocolate cake mix that is very tasty and I am going to have a go at Christmas at turning into a black forest gateau by slicing it adding some whipped double cream with a dash of brandy and adding some morello cherries. I do have a go at making cakes from recipes and will be making a Christmas cake next week. I used to make a Christmas pudding but I usually get one from the shops now.

29 Nov, 2010

 

Oooo....that reminds me Linda, thank you. I will have to go and find a tiny little Christmas pud for my Dad. He loves it with custard. I won't attempt trying to make one....something I've never been successful with. :o(
