Ingredients

  • 500ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cardamom pods, bashed
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 200g jumbo porridge oats
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g pecans, roughly chopped
  • 320g blackberries

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the milk, spices and apple in a small saucepan. Cover, gently bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 mins. Set aside to infuse for at least 15 mins.

  2. Remove and discard the spices, then pour the apples and milk into a large bowl and roughly crush the apples with the back of a fork. Mix in the oats, egg, vanilla, baking powder, pecans and blackberries.

  3. Tip into a 2-litre ovenproof dish and bake for about 30-35 mins until piping hot in the middle. Serve with milk or yogurt and maple syrup, if you like.
