    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    Remember, remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I cannot think of a reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot. Parkin is a ginger bread type food that is traditionally eaten on bonfire (Guy Fawkes) night in Yorkshire. It's good at any other time during autumn or winter as well though!

      I made this exactly as written for my British honey. He spit out the first bite and said it was nothing like he remembered from England! I had never tried this dish and hate that I wasted so much golden syrup for nothing.
