OK, so it's nothing to do with crosswords or quizzes, but does anyone here have a good recipe for Parkin? I've tried a couple from the WibbleWibbleWibble thingy, but they were far too dry and horrible. Something must have been missing and making a good Parkin is number 1394 on the list of things to do before I die, so I need to get started quite soon.

mark -- it's what common people do with their cars.

John(FA) -- Hugh Thingy-Whatsitall had a recipe in The Grauniad a couple of weeks ago. I can't vouch for it though!

Hi John(frae Arran)
My late wife was a Home Economics teacher and used recipes by Delia Smith which she invariably found to be very successful.
Try www.deliaonline/recipes/type....traditional-oatmeal-parkin.html.
If it is a success then you could send some of the fruits of your labours to me in the Capital City.
Yours in anticipation
Joker

Don't really approve of recommending The Other Place, but isn't this a case of The AnswerBank to the rescue?

Thanks for those two pointers. I'll try them first before venturing in to "The Other Place".
