  • porridge oats 100g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • runny honey or maple syrup 1 tbsp, plus extra to serve
  • orange 1, zested
  • eggs 2
  • banana 1, peeled and chopped
  • flavourless oil for the tin
  • blackberries 100g
  • ice cream or yogurt to serve


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the oats in a food processor with a small pinch of salt and whizz until they resemble wholemeal flour. Add the baking powder, honey or maple syrup, orange zest, eggs and banana, and blend again until smooth.

  • Step 2

    Lightly oil a medium baking dish (about 15cm x 20cm and 5cm deep) and pour in the batter. Dot the blackberries over the top, pushing them into the batter slightly. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the oats are golden brown and risen, and a skewer comes out clean. Top with a drizzle more honey or maple syrup (orange blossom or thyme honey would also work well here) and serve with ice cream or yogurt.
