Today's baking adventure is courtesy of the wonderful Mrs Soup. See her recipe here.
I've never heard of "Parkin" before. The dictionary on my trusty iMac tells me that it is a kind of dark gingerbread, typically with a soft dry texture, made with oatmeal and molasses.
This version is a like combination of banana-cake-gingerbread-anzac-biscuit. Delicious!
