This porridge was inspired by one of my favourite cake recipes from the ARAN cookbook, its such a lovely combination of flavours and textures. The original cake uses hazelnuts, but I used walnuts instead for this porridge but feel free to use either! Don't be afraid to add a pinch of salt to your oats - it really brings out the flavours in everything else. The coffee in this mixture gives such a pleasant bitterness against the sweet caramelised pear, so I really hope you enjoy this one! Also, if you have a coffee machine you can use a shot of fresh coffee for an extra fancy morning bowl!
