Daring Cooks March 2015 - Perfect, Personal Porridge

Porridge! (or proodgie if you type really badly like I just did…)

We eat it a lot for breakfast, which is why I chose it as the recipe for the Daring Cooks challenge I hosted last month.

I'm technically late to my own party, as the completed challenge reveal date was the 14th. A recurring theme on this blog.

For the March Daring Cooks’ challenge, Ruth from Makey Cakey invited us to start the day with something filling, warm and nutritious. We got to experiment with different techniques and flavorings to create our own perfect personal porridge.

So what did I make as my porridge-y offering? Here are a whole bunch of porridge pics. I can think of another alliterative 'p-word' to describe them in jest, however I'm not going to type it, for fear of who/what Google might direct to my site as a result!

Rye porridge with cranberries 
Barley porridge with coconut milk
And my favourite - probably the baked chocolate porridge, not least for the nostalgia value. It reminded me of my student days when for some unknown and unusual reason, the girls in my first flat would often make chocolate Bailey's porridge as an evening treat - or indeed as dinner before a night out on the town!

(It goes without saying all of these porridges were dairy free. It works with pretty much any liquid and any flaked grain. The ultimate versatile recipe)
