Add the cinnamon and a pinch of salt and stir consistently until you have a thick, creamy mixture, this will take roughly 8-10minutes.

“Everyone needs a classic porridge recipe with only a few ingredients. This one brings basic porridge to a whole new level, the pecans add a lovely crunch to the top but can easily be replaced with roasted hazelnuts. The apple adds a lovely sweetness and texture to the porridge and the addition of that lovely bit of brown sugar on top adds a lovely glaze to the top of the porridge as it melts once it hits the surface.”
