so delicious and creamy, kept me full up for hours. grating the apple into the porridge as it cooks is genius, makes it lovely and tangy (depending on what type of apple you use) I do think that it needs a good pinch of salt to bring out the flavour of the oats

Porridge is badly overlooked. I'll be trying this as an addition to my other porridge variants, which include quartered orange segments and finely chopped prunes. Don't laugh.

I think chopped prunes is a great idea. I'm going to try that.

It says it serves 4 at the top of the page, but can easily be halved for 2.
