Nutella Porridge

My three-year old is a genius. Each morning, she plods out into the kitchen, opens a few cupboard doors where the handles are at her height and peers in at boxes of cereals and jam jars, deciding what to have for breakfast. Usually she'll go with a boiled egg, something on toast or Shreddies. But one morning she said: "I'd like porridge. With chocolate spread." The first response that came out of my mouth was "No, chocolate spread is for toast...." and then I had to stop myself. It could work.



I just made up a bowl of porridge and stirred in a teaspoonful of Nutella. It was divine. And I don't know how I had the two ingredients in the cupboards for so long without thinking of it myself. It's now a breakfast treat for all of us, thanks to her. If you're stuck for something sweet and soothing for breakfast this weekend, give it a try.

Do you have any special ways to eat porridge? Simply, with a drizzle of honey, or something more glamorous?
