It is no secret on here that I love me some porridge. It is the Mother of all breakfasts and there are so many healthy yet delicious combinations that ensure it never gets boring. But as we enter these cold and dark morning my love for warm, comforting porridge only doubles! So, in a bid to find more seasonal fruits/veggies to add to my porridge (I try and ensure a third of every meal is fruit or veg) I cam across this carrot cake porridge. It is packed full of goodness and tastes like one of my favourite puddings! So here is how I made it.
