2 servings


2.5 dl (1 cup) of Rolled Oats

2.5 dl (1 cup) of Water

1 pinch of salt

1 Banana

100 grams of Raspberries

2.5 dl (1 cup) of Almond Milk

2 tablespoons of Pecan Butter (or grind 60 grams of Pecan Nuts until it becomes buttery)

2 tablespoons of Maple Sirup


In a bowl, mush the Banana with a fork. Add the water, oats and a pinch of salt, mix well and add the raspberries.

Put in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, take the bowl out of the fridge, mix everything together with 2.5 dl Almond Milk.

Divide the porridge into two plates and divide the Pecan butter and Maple Syrup between both plates as topping.


Steel-Cut Oats with Pears in Salty Caramel Sauce

2 servings


2 Pears

2 teaspoons of Coconut Oil

2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup

1 pinch of Maldon Salt (or any other flaky salt)

Steel-Cut Oats cooked in water, with a pinch of salt.


Cook two servings of Steel Cut Oats according to the description on the package.

As the oats are cooking, peel and slice the pears.

Heat a pan with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil (we prefer the fragrant oil that tastes of coconut for this dish)  and add the pears. Stir-fry for a few minutes.

Add a pinch of Maldon salt and stir for another minute.

Add 2 tablespoons of Maple syrup and stir quickly until the pears are covered in the syrup.

Add the pears in caramel sauce as topping to the warm steel-cut oats.

    OMG! You guys are so funny! I was laughing uncontrollably when Arne was making the pears talk! Can’t wait to try your hot recipe….the cold one will have to wait till summer.
    Thank you for so much fun!

    Oh. This was the best! (Porridgegate) I loved every minute of it. I’m so glad you didn’t edit it to make it some kind of pristine event. The ending made me so hungry for bollnäsfil. We didn’t get to use our tickets to Sweden this year. I miss all the food and coffee. Will we ever be welcome in any country again? Will the Covid clear out so we can travel. And many other big questions. Your twice-a-week videos give me something to look forward to now when we stay home from people and miss our hugs. Tack så micket from the far northwest corner of the US map.

    Thank you for sharing the porridge recipe, it looks so good. I’m going to try the hot one. I’ve tried the cold one and I’m with Arne, It’s good but not all the time. Haha
    I didn’t know making almond milk was so easy. I learned a few things from this video.
    You two working in the kitchen looked so so familiar, I think that’s what made me laugh. Another thing in common.
    There’s nothing wrong with some good bantering, right!
    I laughed so hard, I feel like home when I watch you guys

    Very funny video. Thanks.

    I have a possible solution to porridgegate. Instead of mixing the porridge with almond milk, mix it with Greek yogurt. It should be much more to Arne’s taste. We put grated apple in with the oats in the evening like bircher muesli.

    OMG Arne you crack me up, enjoy your creation.

    • Lina on October 31, 2020 at 3:36 am


    This episode really cheered me up from my COVID gloom. You are both so interesting and hilariously funny! You have a beautiful kitchen. My style! I make both versions of those recipes already (hot and cold) but I like the pear-carmel sauce idea. I love your Blue Fluted Mega dishes. I have similar from Villeroy and Boch (Old Luxembourg Brindille.) I’m a bit of a pretty china freak.

    So fun to watch you guys! Thank you.

    You two are great fun to watch, so natural and genuine.
    Is there a video tour of your home? It looks so cosy and interesting.
    Keep taking care!

    You two cheer me up no end during these dreary days!
    Please give us a tour of your beautiful china collection, teapots etc.
    I am worse than Arne and his suitcases when it comes to collecting yarn, shoes and teacups!

    Hope to see Porridgegate: The Ongoing Saga soon

    That was hilarious! I’ve never seen anyone take longer to peel pears. Arne, I love you dearly but your breakfast looked horrible. What on earth is sour milk? Is it just sour milk? Yuk, all thick and horrible. Must be a Scandanavian thing. Carlos, I sympathize with you having to work with Arne in the kitchen, especially first thing in the morning. I’d like lots more of these unedited podcasts. It was very funny and took my mind off other things for almost an hour. Thanks guys.
