At my house: Donna Vs Nigella
Are you wanting lovely warm breakfasts with this cooler weather? We recently had house guests and I thought it would be very domestic to serve up a good ol' pot of porridge to start the day. I turned to a copy of a DH mag from Autumn last year and found 'Vanilla Porridge with Honeyed Apples'. Have a look at the DH website for the recipe. I hadn't made this one before but can advise that when doing the honeyed apples, high heat doesn't necessarily mean the highest heat your burner can go up to. Oops. I can also advise that if you want an even quicker version of this idea, you can grate some apple into the porridge toward the end of the cooking time and stir in the vanilla and honey as well. DEEELISH.
If I break out any Nigella recipes I'll share those experiences too, just to be fair to the poms. You can visit the Nigella's website by clicking this link. Be aware some recipes are submitted by readers, not Nigella.
Thanks Lou for inspiring this 'At my house' sharing game.
