spiced porridge

I’d read before about cooking porridge in the slow cooker, but didn’t really see the point until I saw this recipe for maple spiced dried fruit porridge.  Below is what I tried.


  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 Tbls maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch ground cloves
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 6 twists nutmeg from grinder
  • 4 cups water

Spray crock with no stick spray. Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker and stir well. Cook on low overnight, 7-9 hours. Serve warm.

hmmm.. it smelt delicious, DH loved it (it has maple syrup in therefore IT IS GOOD), I did like it, but not as much as i thought I would… perhaps I need to try it again with some different dried fruit in it?
