*sigh*. Parkin not very well cooked underneath, and too crispy on top. Disintegrated all over the place when removing from tin, but was sticky enough to reassemble somewhat. Have cut into squarishes and put away in an airtight box. Perhaps it'll taste OK in a week's time. The bits of crumbs I ate were a bit on the bland side. And hitting the toffee was the wrong way to do it. I now own one square le creuset potterie dish and not two. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.
Doesn't really make me feel very much like a) cooking dinner or b) going out later.
