Breakfast Recipe

Illustrated recipe for apple porridge

I’d been thinking how it might be nice to try cooking porridge in the slow cooker overnight but I was worried that it might just weld itself to the pot so I haven’t been brave enough to try yet.

Usually I like to have plenty of protein at breakfast time to keep me full but I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather over the past week and fancied something a bit more like pudding for breakfast. Sort of comfort food.

So this was my solution. Roasted apple mixed with butter, sugar and cinnamon on top of a bowl of creamy porridge.

This is a double page spread in my Leuchtturm sketchbook. I think I need to start using it more for coloured pencil drawings (which would also mean that I can practice drawing with coloured pencils a bit more) because the paper in this book, although it’s thick, doesn’t seem to like watercolour all that much.

I used Copic multiliners 0.05, 0.3 and 0.8 and watercolour pencils for this drawing. You can click on the drawing to see a bigger, higher-res version on Flickr.

    I just wanted to comment…I’ve been a reader of yours for some time and have never told you how much I appreciate your blog.
    Following you has been the deciding force in signing up for Sketchbook Skool, I’m one class behind you. It’s been a life changer for me, thank you. Seeing what you’re doing and how you do it is such an inspiration!
    And today’s post makes me wonder, are you taking Koosje’s classes on sketching your food?
    Looks like maybe that’s something else I wold like to try!
    At any rate, thank you from a lurking reader.

      Hi Susie. Thank you very much for your comment. I’m really glad you’re enjoying Sketchbook Skool, it sounds like it’s had quite an effect on you, which is great. I’m not actually taking Koosje’s class on drawing food but this drawing was inspired by her and the klass she teaches in the Storytelling kourse in Sketchbook Skool. I do like the look of her online classes though and have been considering taking one. I think I’m going to take a break from courses for the moment though and see how I feel after Christmas. Do you have a blog? I’d love to see what you’ve been getting up to with your sketchbook! πŸ™‚

    Beautiful sketch. You can also make overnight oats and heat up in the morning for a quick breakfast. Works well! πŸ™‚

      Thanks and that’s a good idea of making overnight oats and heating them up. Thanks for the suggestion :-).
