The other day we were running low on soy milk, so I made oats for breakfast instead of cereal. I put in the amount that I thought Andy usually makes - I filled up a drinking glass with oats, and then added two full drinking glasses of water. And some brown sugar, cinnamon, and dried mixed fruit. Only, when I poured it into our bowls, it was much, much more than we could eat in one go.
Instead of letting that leftover porridge go to waste, though, we made pancakes! I followed this recipe, except that I used egg replacer powder instead of eggs (overripe bananas would probably be very yummy, if bananas didn't cost so much at the moment!). And a mixture of soy milk + water instead of cow milk. They were super easy to make, and they cooked up nicely.
And the results were yummy - chewy, moist and full of flavour from the fruit and cinnamon in the porridge.
We had ours with jam. And they were delightful. I think I'll make too much porridge from now on...
It's a big batch, though - we got 14 regular sized (maybe 4 or 5 inch circles) and one bigger one. So now we have leftover leftover porridge pancakes
