Rye porridge with cinnamon and orange, by Swish

Inspired by the Danish Øllebrød (Danish for Beer Bread), this is our non-alcoholic version of Danish rye bread porridge. Øllebrød is made from leftover rye bread and dregs of beer, and is a great way to use up old bread. Perfect for warming you up during the cold autumn mornings with its cinnamon loveliness and orange zing.

Serves 2 – 3

Crumble the stale bread into a saucepan and cover with the water. Soak for 20 minutes or overnight is best.

Add the orange peel, cinnamon and coconut and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes until smooth. Remove the orange peel, then add the orange juice, caster and brown sugar – add more sugar if you like it sweeter.

Serve the porridge warm, topped with the berries, crème fraiche or toasted nuts, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and the lemon zest.
