    This is a winter favourite of ours that builds on a traditional British breakfast dish. We add sultanas, bananas and cinnamon and it's awesome. Add sugar and milk in the bowl as you like. My sister actually eats it all year round!

    I tried this recipe for myself and I really enjoyed it. The only change I made was that I used honey instead of sugar and was a little more liberal with the cinnamon. I love this recipe and will definitely make it again . Thanks!  -  30 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am a porridge eater normally but was looking for a recipe similar to what the Hari Krishna tent serves up at the Glastonbury festival in the UK, which is spicy, sweet and breakfasty too. I found I needed to add more cinnamon to this and poured honey over it too or it would have been bland. I also used sultanas instead of bananas as the one I had previously had sultanas. Not a very exciting recipe but not bad either  -  01 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't try it with bananas, as I find cooked bananas too mushy. Instead, I added dried raisins, dried and chopped appricots, and chopped almonds. I upped the cinnamon, added cloves, nutmeg, and allspice, and Voila! Christmas cookies for breakfast.  -  08 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
