Autumn is a great time to introduce making a warm breakfast to start your day. This recipe for slow cooker cinnamon and apple porridge is so delicious. It’s more than your everyday porridge and one I save for the weekend.
Last Sunday I wondered downstairs and flicked the slow cooker on. I then poured into the cooking pot all my delicious ingredients that had been sitting in the fridge from the night before. Grabbing my coat I ventured out the door, into the cold, to walk the dog. Returning home the kitchen was already starting to smell good, and after a quick shower, and a hot coffee in my hand, the kids and I were ready to eat this delicious breakfast.
This porridge is creamy with a delicious flavour of apples. The aromatic cinnamon adds a depth and warmth to the porridge which makes it very different from your usual porridge.
