Perfect Porrdige

Created by SteveA

This is my recipe for the prefect porridge using mixed oats for different textures and flavour, milk, water, a dash of cream, and drizzled in maple syrup :-)

Cook time
4 mins


  • 1/4 small cup thick rolled porridge oats
  • 1/2 cup standard/fine milled porridge oats
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tblspn cream
  • tiny pinch sea salt
  • good drizzle maple syrup

Recipe Method

To microwave this quickly, simply add the oats, milk, water and salt to a bowl, then microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave again for around 1-2 minutes until just boiling. Stir, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then add in the cream. Dizzle with maple syrup and enjoy :-)

To cook on the hob, add the oats, milk, water and salt to a pan, then cook on a medium heat until simmering just on the boil for 4 minutes, then serve as per above.


You can use semi-skimmed milk and no cream for a healthier version.

    Ok, its just porridge but using the different oats was a good call, as was the maple syrup.
