We're delighted, these biscuits have just won a 2020 GREAT TASTE AWARD. Baked using our award winning Yorkshire parkin biscuit recipe.
To create our Yorkshire Ginger Parkin & Chocolate biscuits we have used our award winning Yorkshire Parkin Biscuit recipe, the perfect blend of oatmeal, ginger and black treacle, and added rich, silky Belgian chocolate chunks. This combination of ingredients creates a luxury ginger biscuit that is quite unique.
Their story begins over a hundred years ago, in the heart of the Yorkshire Pennines. It has a humble start, Lottie's Great Aunts; Mary and Edith Harrison, setting out to bake and sell their original recipes of regional specialities. Little did they know, it was the beginning of a legacy, a journey of a family’s passion for baking, handed down through three generations and the very start of the Lottie Shaw’s story.
“I grew up in my parents’ bakery,” Lottie explains, “ Loving our treasured family recipes'.” The urge to revive one of her favourites; The Yorkshire Parkin cake, a classic much-loved regional bonfire night treat, led Lottie to create her own brand... Lottie Shaw’s. Convinced once people tasted her authentic sticky ginger cake; a blend of oatmeal, ginger and black treacle, folk would enjoy it far & wide, all year round... and the rest as they say is history!
Today, our Yorkshire Parkin remains the award-winning signature product of the Lottie Shaw’s brand. One of the seriously good things about our Yorkshire Parkin cake heritage recipe is when we bake it, the treacle caramelises and hardens. In keeping with tradition, before it can leave the bakery it is kept to ‘rest’ to allow it to ‘come again’ this is where the caramel softens, giving each piece the perfect crumbly stickiness.
