Cook's Hideout: Swedish Christmas porridge

September 22, 2014

Swedish Christmas porridge

This is a hearty and delicious oatmeal porridge that you would love to wake up to on Christmas morning. The oats are soaked overnight making them soft and quick & easy to cook in the morning. Adding grated apple was my favorite in this dish.

Recipe adapted from here.
Ingredients: Serves 2~3 
Rolled Oats - 1 cup 
Apple - 1 small, grated 
Milk - 11/2 ~ 2 cups 
Ground Cinnamon - 1tsp 
Brown Sugar - as needed 
Honey - for serving 

  • Combine oats and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight. 
  • In the morning, stir in grated apple and some more milk. Bring the mixture to a slow boil and simmer for 5~10 minutes to get the desired consistency, stirring continuously to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan. 
  • Divide among the serving bowls and sprinkle some ground cinnamon and drizzle some honey.

  1. Agree that surely makes it so inviting for a lazy morning...

  2. The taste of fall, apple and cinnamon. Nothing like a hot bowl of breakfast on chilly mornings.

  3. Nice presentation. Never cooked oats with apple but am sure it tasted great.

  4. Oats and apple is a ultimate combo and then apple and cinnamon is another ultimate combo now two merged together. .a wow factor automatically comes . Real good one.

  5. Christmas.. Do I have to wait till then? I better stop reading here and go buy my groceries. ;D

  6. I think you forgot to mention some of the milk should be added day before when it is soaking right? anyway this is my kind of porridge
