Cherry Bakewell Overnight Oats

Ahhhh, it’s cherry season! Rejoice! I can’t tell you how many punnets I had to repurchase for shooting this post. They don’t hang around for long! If you can resist snacking through bags of them, how about adding cherries to your overnight oats for a delicious take on the classic pudding recipe? Last year, I came across a Black Forest Bircher. Seeing as the best of us can’t get away with dessert for breakfast, it seemed like a genius compromise.

I dread to think how many overnight oats recipes there are in the world. The possibilities are endless though. I’m forever inspired by all of the different flavour combos found on Pinterest, Instagram and even in my cookbooks.

From my experience, it can be tricky to get the balance just right for your taste. Feel free to play around with the quantities but as a general rule, I go 50g oats to 150ml of milk. Stirring yoghurt through the mix (before or after) will give you a much creamier consistency. Anyway, have a go with my cherry bakewell version and let me know how you get on…
