  • Oatmeal, cream, sugar, and flavouring to taste


Toast some coarse oatmeal lightly before the fire or in the oven. Beat some cream to a stiff froth and stir in the oatmeal. Do not make it too substantial. It may be sweetened and flavoured to taste. The toasted oatmeal gives an agreeable somewhat nutty, flavour to the dish.
