Katja (Our Nourishment and Social Wellness Coordinator) and a small group of residents at at Lulworth House Residential Care Home made a batch of cappuccino cupcakes and Parkin last week, along with another batch of cold coffees.
Parkin is a traditional desert with oats, treacle, syrup and ginger. Once it’s cooked you wrap it in parchment and foil; keep it for up to five days before eating if you can! It will become softer and stickier the longer you leave it (up to two weeks!) Our Chef will keep the Parkin safe for us until next week when we can have it as a pudding with custard or ice-cream!
The cappuccino cupcakes were a big hit with both the residents and staff – with a lot of people asking for the recipe to make them for themselves at home! Yum!
