Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup Irish steel-cut oats
  • 1 pinch salt
  • For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins or dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions
  • In a medium saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil. Stir in the steel-cut oats and salt and cook a few minutes to thicken. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring the apple juice to a boil, add the raisins, and cook a few minutes to help them plump. In a mixing bowl, with a whip attachment combine the heavy cream, brown sugar, and cinnamon and whip until stiff. Keep chilled.

  • Remove the cooked oatmeal from the heat and serve piping hot in bowls. Sprinkle the plumped raisins on top of the oatmeal and spoon a dollop of the brown sugar cinnamon whipped cream in the center and serve.

  • Notes about the recipe: To cut some of the cooking time, soak the oats in water overnight by bringing the water to a boil, turn off the heat, and add the oats. Cover the pot and let sit over night. The next morning cook on low heat 9 to 12 minutes stirring occasionally.
