I have to admit I’m not much of a porridge person (not into all the milk!) but Elliott is and I made him porridge for breakfast because I think he’s on the verge of manflu…. n’aw. Because it’s now apple season and there’s plenty to buy on the roadside (more on this soon!) I made a hot apple and raisin topper for it too.

Single Egg Frying Pan

I have this awesome little pan from my ‘gram-in-law’ which is to fry a single egg in, but it’s great to fry little bits and bobs in like a bit of apple, or for toasting spices or seeds. Very useful kitchen item!

Porridge with Apples and Sultanas

Porridge with an Apple and Sultana Topper

For two
100g oats
350ml milk/water/alternative
pinch of sea salt (Jamie Oliver told me to)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp dark soft sugar (be warned I have an awful sweet tooth- this may not be necessary!)

– Over a medium heat bring the oats and milk (with the salt added) to a simmer stirring as much as possible.
– Simmer until creamy (5 mins or so).
– Stir in the sugar and cinnamon and cook for a further 2 mins.

1 apple, chopped into small pieces
knob of butter
small handful of sultanas
1 tbsp soft dark sugar (to taste)

– Whilst the porridge is cooking, in a small frying pan heat the butter until melted and then add the apple.
– When the apple has softened add the sugar and the sultanas and cook until syrupy and glazed.
– Serve on top of the porridge and you will be set up for the day!
