Oatmeal Pudding

Hovering halfway between a hearty post-workout brekkie, and a simple, homey dessert, this recipe just depends on what you bring to the table, so to speak.


  1. 1Add egg yolks to milk and beat thoroughly. This is important. If you think you’ve beat it enough, give it another dozen turns. You want yellow, slightly frothy milk, not milk with eggy spots in it. This is a good point to toss in the salt, sugar and cinnamon as well.
  2. 2Pour milk mixture into a large COLD non-stick frying pan. Add oatmeal, and stir until all is wettened.
  3. 3Turn the burner onto medium and heat, stirring constantly. When mixture is heated enough to start trying to bubble, and has started to thicken, cover and remove from heat. Leave it for a minute or two to finish cooking.
  4. 4Serve, adding a lashing of milk and some more brown sugar. Or perhaps some semi-sweet chocolate chips and a dash of Baileys? Dried fruit? Nuts and seeds? It’s oatmeal, folks; it don’t get much more tabula rasa than that.
