    This is a winter favourite of ours. We add sultanas, bananas and cinnamon and it's brilliant.

    A great recipe. I used honey instead of sugar, and milk instead of water, but it was still just as yummy. A great winter warmer and fool-proof!  -  05 Feb 2010


    I tried this recipe for myself and I really enjoyed it. The only change I made was that I used honey instead of sugar and was a little more liberal with the cinnamon. I love this recipe and will definitely make it again . Thanks!  -  30 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am a porridge eater normally but was looking for a recipe similar to what the Hari Krishna tent serves up at the Glastonbury festival in the UK, which is spicy, sweet and breakfasty too. I found I needed to add more cinnamon to this and poured honey over it too or it would have been bland. I also used sultanas instead of bananas as the one I had previously had sultanas. Not a very exciting recipe but not bad either  -  01 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
