Sweetheart Porridge

Have you heard about the Great British Porridge Challenge? You can read more about it on my other blog, Competition Grape Vine and submit your entry on their website or Facebook page. Your porridge recipe could win a gourmet experience at Simon Rimmer's restaurant, Earle. The closing date is March 6th.

And you can win a hamper of Mornflake goodies in a separate competition, over on the Grape Vine blog.

Here is a recipe from The Porridge Lady to give you some inspiration for your own entry.

Sweetheart Porridge     
This recipe uses the natural sweetness of berries topped with the sweet treat of white chocolate.

Serves: Two
Cooking & preparation time: 6 mins


15g white chocolate
80g Mornflake jumbo oats
200ml milk
200ml cold water
80g frozen berries
1 dessertspoon runny British honey


Coarsely grate the white chocolate and set aside.  
Into a deep saucepan place the oats, water and milk.
Then put the saucepan over a high heat and cook for 2 mins stirring constantly.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the oats for a further 2-3 mins or until you have a nice creamy Porridge.
Pour the Porridge into two bowls.
Swirl the frozen berries into the Porridge (they will be like little frozen fruit pops!).
Top with a swirl of honey.
Finally garnish with the grated chocolate and serve hot to your sweetheart for breakfast.
