I♥CC Fit For A Brit! Nigel Slater’s porridge recipe

Fit for a Brit
I have a weakness for all British (recipes), including Lord Peter Whimsey and I love porridge. Why not trying another porridge recipe from Nigel Slater?

I have used „zarte Schmelzflocken“ from Peter Kölln, THE brand for generations of children in Northern Germany. As a German food chemist, I can’t do cups

Nigel’s recipe uses 1.5 percent point more oat than Christopher Trotter, but the cooking time is shorter.

I made 1/4 of the following recipe and enjoyed it with a dollop of yoghurt and a bit of honey. Absolutely delicious!

Nigel Slater's classic porridge

Classic porridge recipe with oatmeal and water


  • 750 ml water
  • 100 grams oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Pour into a small saucepan and place over a moderate heat. Tip in one cup of medium oatmeal and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. As soon as the porridge starts to blip, add the salt. Continue stirring (clockwise or you risk summoning the devil) until the porridge has been cooking for a total time of 5 minutes. Tip into warm bowls.
  2. Have a bowl of cold milk or cream ready. Lift a spoonful of hot porridge and dip it into the cold milk or cream and eat.

total: 15 minutes
preparation: 2 minutes
cook: 5 minutes

    There’s something about a warming bowl of oatmeal on a cold morning that just seems to start the day off right, especially with a little honey and yogurt added.
