Spiced porridge with caramelised bramley apples

This is my second recipe with Great British Apples, and it’s a super delicious seasonal warming spiced apple porridge.

It’s perfect for keeping you cosy, Autumn and Winter.

These caramelised Bramley apples are delicious on porridge, and Bramley apples are often associated with pies and crumbles for good reason, their low sugar content and tangy taste make them perfect.

But here are some more of my other favourite ways to use them; as a cake or tart topping, layer on pancakes with coconut yoghurt, served simply with coconut yoghurt and granola, and blitzed to make apple purée.

Enjoy, love Niki xx

I'd love to hear your comments…

  • I love apple porridge but I wouldn’t necessarily choose Bramleys for the caramelised apples in this recipe. The principle feature of Bramleys – and the reason they’re so popular for cooking with – is that they “fall”, i.e. turn easily into a lovely smooth puree, when cooked. Perfect for making fillings for apple turnovers or pies, apple butter, or just apple puree, but not ideal if you want apples to stay in whole slices. I haven’t tried baking them in the oven as in this recipe but I imagine that the oven dries them out so that they don’t entirely collapse. However, it seems a bit of a waste of Bramleys’ best feature to treat them this way. I would choose a different, slightly tart apple for making caramelised slices and save the Bramleys for what they do best.

    That said, this recipe looks delicious!
