  • 1 cup steel cut oats *
  • 2/3 cup toasted pecans finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup raisins optional
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup cream or sub more milk instead
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease a 9 or 10 inch round baking dish. I just used a deep dish pie plate.
  • In a large bowl, combine steel cut oats, toasted pecans, maple syrup, spices, and raisins. Mix to combine. Pour in milk, cream, vanilla and melted butter & stir to combine. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
  • Mix together cinnamon sugar mixture. Sprinkle evenly over the porridge mixture. Place dish in the center of your oven and bake for 55-60 minutes. The top will be golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove from oven and distribute among bowls. Serve with your favourite toppings such as milk, cream, a drizzle of maple syrup, fresh fruit etc.


* Note: you could substitute rolled oats, but just make sure you cut down your baking time to about 30-40 minutes as it will cook much faster
