sweet porridge - the perfect oatmeal snack!

sweet porridge


U need:

250 gr rolled oats

500 ml milk

4 teaspoons sugar ( or more if desired)
you can use honey instead as a more healthy alternative!

1 handfull raisins ( more or less if desired)

Optional: cinnamon, some coffee powder, fresh fruits, yogurt
I love to add different ingredients everytime i make the porridge. My favorite fruits to use are peaches, banana, and mango :)
Dont use kiwi as it doesnt go well with the milk and turn the dish sour!

1. Place the oats in a pan and add the milk and about 300ml water ( thats about 1 cup).

2. Bring it 2 boil, than add the sugar and reduce the heat. Simmer for 4 - 5 min, stirr frequently.

3. Add the raisins and stirr.

You can serve the porridge warm or cold.
Its traditioanlly eaten warm as breakfast in the cold season ( which seems to never end in Brittain :D)
In the summer i eat it mostly cold with fruits, while in the winter its really great to eat it hot to warm u up.
