Where I come from, we don’t really have oatmeal. We have no-nonsense PORRIDGE. It’s the same, but I can’t bring myself to refer to a warm bowl of creamy oats as anything but porridge. Except of course when I bake it, because “baked porridge” doesn’t sound very sexy does it?

Wait, nor does “Baked Oatmeal”. Moving on.

So baked oatmeal is a relatively new discovery for me, but I really dig the way it can jazz up weekday breakfasts, and the fact I can make a batch ahead of time and quickly reheat it all week long. This berry baked oatmeal is gorgeously sweet and tart with its combination of blueberries and raspberries. A hint of vanilla and cinnamon creep through, and the walnuts add texture. I like to serve mine with a dollop of creamy greek yoghurt and a drizzle of honey. So delicious!
