Hi, lovely people. Today we have one of my favourite Winter breakfasts, the lovely porridge. You can change the flavour of this in so many ways, some which I will list under the recipe. T’is an old one this one, my great-grandma’s recipe (that is why it is done in cups) Okey dokey, et’s GET THIS PARTY STARTED.
1/4 cup oats (old fashioned ones NOT quick oats)
1/4 cup and a dash of milk (I use semi-skimmed)
1/4 cup and a dash of water
Pinch of salt
Place all ingredients in a microwave bowl, no need to stir unless you want to. Place in microwave for a minute, then do it in 10-20 second shots until there is not much liquid left. Mixing will make the porridge absorb the water. Mine actually took 1min 30secs. You could do this on the hob but I find the microwave easier. Done!
Some topping ideas:
Demerara sugar and cinamon (one of my favourites!)
Apple/apple sauce and cinamon
Cocoa powder and banana
Frozen berries and sugar/Stevia
As you can see…some are healthier than others! I love to eat this for breakfast as it takes hardly any time to make and is very filling and keeps you fuelled for the day ahead!
What are your favourite toppings for porridge?
Lots of Love,
