This fabulous Mine Pie Porridge recipe was kindly given to us by Alice from Trekstock to support the Rude Health Porridge Championships. Alice is the Community Fundraiser at Trekstock, a charity supporting young people with cancer. She looks after all of their wonderful Ambassadors and helps to raise vital funds for the work they do.

Alice claims her experience in porridge making is rather limited, but with her passion for cooking and a little bit of practice she rustled up something pretty special at the Rude Health London Porridge Championships.
