In this household we are big porridge fans, especially when the weather starts to have a chill (and the tingle of Christmas coming) in the air. I will always pick hot food over cold food and breakfast is no exception (ice cream is an exception though!); this is such an autumnal porridge, the apples transitioning away from summer and the cinnamon hinting towards Christmas, I love it. Apple and cinnamon is one of my favourite flavour combinations and also one of my favourite cakes.
James was a huge fan of this porridge, we’ll definitely be having it again soon!
Ingredients: (Serves 2)
- One apple, peeled and finely diced
- 0.25 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 90 g of porridge oats
- ~300-500 ml of milk, depending on the consistency you want
- maple syrup/honey to sweeten
- Place the oats, apple, cinnamon and about 300 ml of milk in a sauce pan and bring to a slow boil over a medium-high heat. Stir every now and then, adding more milk as required.
- Cook for about 10 minutes or until your oats are soft and it is the consistency you want, add more milk if too thick and if too runny then cook for a little longer.
- I like to stir a little cold milk into my porridge once served, to thin it (and cool it) down a bit.
- Drizzle with maple syrup or honey and enjoy a filling and delicious breakfast (I won’t judge if you have it for lunch or dinner!).
