Method

  1. Put the apples in a pan with 100ml water and cook gently until almost softened. Turn up the heat. Add the cranberries, mixed spice and 3 tbsp of the caster or granulated sugar and bubble until saucy. You can make this a day before serving.
  2. Tip the oats, milk, vanilla and remaining sugar into a big saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly, and simmer for 4-5 mins until creamy. Divide between 6 bowls and top with the warm or cold fruit mixture.

Just made the compote and had some if it with ice cream for dessert, looking forward to putting the rest on my morning porridge. I used dried cranberries which may be why mine didn't turn out as red and juicy as in the picture - will double the water next time. Will definitely make again, very tasty.
