Breakfast can be such a boring rut. Now the weather has turned colder I seem to have left muesli behind and I need something to break the weekday porridge monotony. So I was a very happy puppy when I was sorting through old cook books and found this little number. I used frozen berries, defrosted over night. I was a very annoyed puppy that neither the Ankle Biters nor Bread Winner were fans. I thought it was great.
