Costed at Asda October 2019In line with current thinking, I've reduced the sugar in this recipe to half what it was. If you prefer a different taste, increase it back up againYou could add vanilla to this mix, or cinnamon, mixed spice or gingerA layer of dried fruit would work, sultanas, chopped dried apple, dates or figs. I would put the dried fruit in a pan, add a good splash of water, and cook it down to a pulp.If you have apples or pears from the garden, cook some down to a thick puree and use thatAt Christmas time, a layer of mincemeat instead of jam would make a festive bakeIf you prefer savoury flavours to sweet ones, all sorts of options would be easy to make too. A good layer of caramelised onions; buttery mashed carrot or parsnip; add sweet chilli sauce or my favourite Pataks aubergine pickle to the oats; or garlic, chilli and ginger; or 2 or 3 tblsps of a Pataks curry paste. How about actual leftover curry in the middle!
