Apple And Cinnamon Porridge with Syrup-Covered Apple Slices

I’m back again with (another) porridge recipe, but this time, it’s my own recipe! Heavily inspired by other Instagram food accounts (*cough* healthy twists *cough*), I put together my favourite ideas to come up with an easy to make porridge with a sweet, autumnal taste.

I recently posted a reel on my Instagram with all the ingredients, so I thought I’d produce a written version so you can follow along easily. I hope you enjoy, and let me know if you try it!


For the porridge:

1 cup rolled oats

2 cups milk (I use semi-skimmed)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract/flavouring

Half an apple (cut into small chunks)

For the toppings:

2 tbsp golden syrup combined with 1 tbsp maple syrup

Half an apple cut into thin slices

How to make:

Add the porridge ingredients one by one into a pan on a medium heat, making sure to stir frequently so that the oats don’t get stuck to the bottom.

When the porridge starts to become thicker, heat the golden syrup and maple syrup on a frying pan on a low to medium heat. When it starts to bubble, add in the thinly sliced apple and cook until they’re soft and covered in the syrup.

When your porridge has built up a slightly thick consistency (this might be during the time the apples are still in the frying pan as it doesn’t take too long to cook), take the porridge off the heat and fill your bowls. When the apples are finished, place them on top of the porridge.

And that’s it! It really is that easy!

Let me know if you try this at home, and be sure to send any pictures or feedback!

  • Sightseeing In Oxford – My Top 4
    I’m finally back (hopefully with a bang), starting off my Oxford series from when I stayed there back in late August. Oxford is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in the UK to date: its beautiful Gothic and Baroque architecture are the star of the show for me, but there’s plenty […]

    It’s official: I’m in a rut. Ever since finishing university, I’ve been in this “I don’t want to do anything” phase, which I thought would last a couple days. A couple days turned into a month, and here we are now.

    I’ve always been a fan of the Olympics: I love seeing how insanely talented athletes are and watching records get broken with every four years (or rather five, in this case) that passes. I love watching it with my family, and seeing the spirit of the nation rise with every medal that’s achieved. What I’ve […]

    All over Instagram, I’ve been seeing reels showing London’s newest art exhibitions. Personally, I’m a huge fan of museums, and could spend hours just roaming around, but I know it’s not for everyone. However, from the reels I’ve been seeing, the exhibitions on show at the moment are absolutely magical, and I’m sure would inspire […]

    Sandbanks first came onto my radar when I watched a TV show talk to Harry Redknapp about his home in the area. It appeared to be a pretty exclusive area: small in size, but lined with grand houses amongst a sandy beachfront (a sandy beach in England, I know!) It wasn’t until recently that I […]
