This breakfast dish may be ready the night time earlier than and baked whereas the oven continues to be sizzling from dinner, or bake it within the morning, when you’ve got the time.
The recipe makes a big dish (it may be halved) and any leftovers make a terrific afternoon snack, and even dessert.
This baked porridge is a useful recipe to have up your sleeve, as it may be blended up with completely different fruits (use 2 cups) and spices to go well with the season. For instance, plum and blended spice, strawberry and vanilla, or pear and ginger.

BAKED PORRIDGE WITH APPLE AND BLACKBERRIES
Preparation time: quarter-hour
Cooking time: 40 minutes
1½ cups (180g) rolled oats
½ cup (40g) desiccated coconut
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 apple, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
1 cup recent or frozen blackberries or different berries
1½ cups (375ml) milk – I used oat milk
1/3 cup (80ml) pure yoghurt
50g melted butter
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Mix the oats, coconut, 3 tablespoons of sugar, cinnamon and salt within the base of 20 x 25 cm baking dish (or related, I used an oval dish). Add the chopped apples and berries and blend collectively. In a jug, whisk collectively the eggs, milk and yoghurt then pour this custard over the oats and fruit.
Drizzle the melted butter over the floor of the dish and scatter evenly with the remaining tablespoon of sugar. This can create a candy caramelised floor – like sprinkling brown sugar over a bowl of porridge.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, till golden and the oats are flippantly set within the dish. If cooking within the night, cool and canopy, then gently reheat for breakfast (or serve chilly). Preserve leftovers within the fridge and eat inside 3 days.
