Cherry Bakewell Porridge

Yet another dessert-for-breakfast idea, and possibly my favourite yet (this is my fourth creation) – cherry bakewell porridge! This was a challenge for me to create as I don’t actually like cherry bakewell tarts, so I needed to stick to the original flavours and attempt to make it something I’d enjoy, and I think I succeeded, as this was scrumptious beyond belief! It was made even better I think by the fact that I had it in my kitchen in London; I went home for the weekend to see my Mum (it’s her birthday coming up), and I think everything tastes much better when you’re eating it snuggled on a warm sofa in your proper home :)

Anyway, this is my take on a cherry bakewell tart, so there’s a lot of almonds and lovely cherries – I’d definitely make sure to buy frozen cherries for this, they’re so expensive at this time of year! I hope you like it as much as I did, and I hope you’re still loving my dessert-for-breakfast challenge, I’m so enjoying creating all these wonderful and tasty recipes!

Cherry Bakewell Porridge


45g of porridge oats

250ml of soy milk

Spoonful of raspberry jam

Handful of cherries – buy these frozen at this time of year, they’re really expensive when not in season

Half a teaspoon each of almond extract and vanilla extract

Almond butter and chopped almonds to top


  1. Put all the ingredients (except the almond butter and chopped almonds) in a pan and heat for 7 minutes until creamy and thick.
  2. Top with a big dollop of almond butter, chopped almonds and a few cherries.

Serves one

  2. is porridge oats something else than just oats? =)
    ‘cos i did the porridge with just oats and it didn’t get thick – i added about 90g more ^^
    and this porridge is DELICIOUS!!! i’ll put it into my everyday menu ^^
    (i didn’t have almond butter so i changed it for dried figs ^^)

    • Ooh, dried figs sound nice :)
      The porridge oats I mean are thick, rolled oats – you may have used instant, which are finer. Sorry they didn’t get thick, sometimes it doesn’t work for me, but I’m glad you liked it anyway :D xx

  3. This is the one I’ve been waiting for! It sounds delicious but I’ve not come across almond butter – is it a vegan butter and if so where can I find it?
