SPICED BAKED PORRIDGE
As a Scot, I have to include porridge, don’t I? It is sometimes seen as a bit of an austere breakfast, and made in the traditional way, with just water and salt, it can be. But this is porridge like I never had as a child, enriched with cream, nuts and spices. Cooking it in the oven takes away the pain of having to stir it constantly on the hob, and caramelising the sugar under the grill at the last minute turns it into a kind of healthy crème brulée.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
  2. Combine the oats and vanilla seeds in a mixing bowl – use your fingers to rub the seeds through the oats. Add the spices, nuts, raisins and pear and mix well. Stir in the milk and cream, then pour the mixture into a baking dish. Dust with a little extra grated nutmeg.
  3. Place in the oven and bake for 30–35 minutes, or until the oats are completely softened and the liquid absorbed.
  4. Heat the grill on its highest setting. Sprinkle the top of the porridge with the sugar and place under the grill for 3–4 minutes, or until the sugar has melted and created a crust.
  5. Serve warm, with a little extra milk on the side if desired.
