Slow Cooker Maple and Raisin Porridge

Slow Cooker Maple and Raisin Porridge

This Slow Cooker Porridge is AMAZING. I used 1 cup of whole oats to 4 cups of semi skimmed milk (you could use full fat milk for an even creamier version) and left it on low overnight .....the result was divine. The smell on waking was worth it alone but what  I really enjoyed was the crusty bits that had formed around the edge of the slow cooker pot.

Slow Cooker Maple and Raisin Porridge


I added some maple syrup and raisins to the porridge and a dash more milk to everyone's bowls (the amount served 4 easily) and we gobbled it up in no time. So comforting on a cold winters day.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a cheesecake. If I'm eating out and there is a cheesecake on the menu, I WILL make room for it and any ensuing indigestion is well worth it in my opinion. Similarly, if you turn up at my house on a high day or holiday you'll find a homemade cheesecake being served. I just never get bored of them and have been known to polish off a slice for breakfast on occasion. One of my all time favourite cheesecake recipes is a baked raspberry one that gets an outing several times a year at the request of friends and family. Despite my tried and tested recipe, I thought it was about time that I developed something new to add to my cheesecake repertoire.

This no bake Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake was by all accounts a bit of a revelation.... in taste and looks! It's definitely got the WOW factor and I'm very glad I decided to 'branch out'.

The base of the cheesecake is made from crushed milk chocolate digestive bis…
