Porridge muffins

This morning my husband lovingly made porridge for me and the little dude, and then the little dude didn’t want his porridge, and then I forgot to eat mine, and then he went off to creche, and there was a pot on the stove with two cups of cold porridge staring at me sadly.

So I made these muffins.


2 cups cold porridge

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 grated apple

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup oil (I used half/half canola and olive)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup sugar

2 Tbsp golden syrup

1 egg


Beat the egg, oil, and golden syrup until thick and a little bit foamy. Add the cold porridge and apple, and beat until well-mixed.

Separately, combine the dry ingredients.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing quickly and taking care not to over-mix, as is the standard advice for muffins. Spoon into a greased muffin tin and bake at 190 celsius for 15 – 20 minutes, until a bit browned on top. Makes 12.

These make pleasant muffins, unapologetically plain, but moist and light.
