updated their porridge recipe from the EDC, so decided to give it a go. I added 3 plums (quartered), 2 cloves and a teaspoon of cinnamon, just for good measure. It was pretty good. Much creamier than I'm used to, and didn't require any extra milk around the edges (which is how I normally have it). It was pretty good with the fruit and the plums were very welcome in the muffins.
Of course, I forgot that like pretty much all the recipes in the EDC, it made an absolute bucketful, and was way too much for our little family. Fortunately, I was able to make the most of my leftovers with this lovely muffin recipe (based on this).
You may think that 300g of cooked oatmeal is a lot, but it is actually just a heaped cupful. Left to cool in the muffin tin, these muffins are moist and not very sweet, but with little bursts of fruity goodness. Muffins you can feel good about eating!
