It is important to stir the milk and spelt throughout the cooking process occasionally. This step not only prevents it from sticking to the bottom of the pot and burning, but it also allows the grains to cook evenly, resulting in porridge with a uniformly creamy texture with a slight crunch.
Finally, patience is key. After you have cooked the grains, remove the pot from the heat and let the porridge rest for a few minutes. This allows the grains to fully absorb any remaining liquid and become plump and flavourful.

Sometimes, all you need are good toppings. Our recipe boasts a wonderful mix of toppings with flavours that will truly enliven your palate. At the heart of it is a homemade berry compote. Prepared with forest berries and a hint of honey, it delivers a delightful mix of sweet and tart notes, beautifully balancing the creaminess of the porridge and skyr. Meanwhile, the toasted almonds offer a warm, nutty dimension. The slight crunch of these toasted nuts contrasts superbly with the smooth texture of the porridge, keeping each bite interesting. Lastly, a light sprinkle of raw liquorice may seem unconventional, but its inimitable sweetness provides an intriguing finish to this multi-layered breakfast dish.
Skyr introduces a cool, refreshing contrast to the warm porridge. Its thick, creamy texture and slightly sour taste pair perfectly with the delicate sweetness of the cooked spelt, creating a satisfying and enticing balance. Cold skyr on top of warm porridge is simply delicious, adding a sensory contrast that is just irresistible even before you add the rest of the toppings. The spelt porridge is prepared using a blend of parboiled spelt and spelt flakes. Each brings a different characteristic to the dish – the parboiled spelt is easy to cook and adds a rich, nutty flavour, while the spelt flakes contribute to the creamy texture. Interestingly, it is the parboiled spelt that adds a pleasing crunch to the dish. This contrast between tangy skyr and the slight crunch from the parboiled spelt grains in an otherwise smooth and cream porridge creates a breakfast experience that keeps you coming back for more.
