Carrot cake porridge

Carrot cake porridge

Introduction

Carrot cake what??? Yes, carrot cake porridge! And it's absolutely delicious. So delicious that I don't restrict this to breakfast - I like to have it as an afternoon treat on a rainy weekend :)

There's something really satisfying about getting a portion of vegetables into your breakfast! But don't worry, this doesn't taste like it has veg in it - think yummy carrot cake but warm and soft.
