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

Ingredients

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

Method

  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?
