Just in time for World Porridge Day on 10 October, the entire 3Bears team was in Scotland to take part in the Porridge World Championship, where our founder Caroline masterfully cooked up her favourite recipe: A wonderfully fragrant apple strudel porridge with fresh homemade vanilla sauce.
Now we don't want to withhold our recipe from you and present you the Bavarian classic. Crispy roasted almonds, fruity apple, fragrant cinnamon and a vanilla sauce to melt away. But just try it yourself...
For the sauce, cut the vanilla pods open lengthwise and scrape out the pulp. Bring both to the boil in a saucepan with milk and cream, then set aside and allow to draw.
For the porridge, melt the butter and brown the almonds. Take out half of it and put aside. Leave the other half in the pot.
Wash the apple, cut it in half, remove the seeds and chop half of it into small cubes. Cut the other half thinly for decoration. Put the apple cubes and apple juice in the pot with the almonds. Heat everything up and boil down open at low heat for 3-5 minutes.
Pour the slightly cooled vanilla milk through a sieve. Stir the egg yolks with 3 tablespoons of vanilla milk and salt with a whisk until smooth. Heat the remaining vanilla milk with sugar. Stir in the egg yolks and stir over medium heat until the sauce has thickened.
In the meantime add the porridge to the apple-almond mixture and boil down for 3 minutes. Divide the porridge between two bowls and pour the sauce over them. Serve decorated with remaining almonds and apple slices.
