How do you like your parkins?

Cakes or biscuits, parkins are delicious either way. My preference is for biscuits which may have a little chewy bit in the middle, depending on the firing. Syrup rather than treacle makes the biscuits sweeter which I prefer.
Most recipes use plain white flour plus oatmeal but wholemeal flour and oatmeal gives more texture and flavour. Thanks (yet again) to Catherine Brown for the recipe.
