Bonfire Night Parkin

100g butter
100g black treacle
200g golden syrup
100g dark brown muscovado sugar
200g self-raising flour
2 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g coarse oatmeal
1 egg, beaten
6 tbsp whole milk

1. Preheat the oven to 150c (gas mark 2). Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin with baking parchment. Heat the butter in a saucepan with the black treacle, golden syrup and sugar over a low heat until it has all melted together. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
2. Sieve the flour with the ginger, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl, then stir in the oatmeal. Make a well in the centre and gradually add the cooled syrup mixture, stirring and taking care that is doesn’t become lumpy. Then stir in the beaten egg and milk, until it resembles the consistency of thick batter.
3. Pour into the prepared tin and cook for 1-1¼ hours, until just firm to the touch. Leave in the tin to cool completely and don’t worry as it will sink in the middle as it cools. Remove from the tin and cut into pieces. Store in an airtight tin for 1-2 days before serving
