Blackberry porridge

I came across this recipe when I was trawling through some food blogs, unfortunately I didn't save the link so I lost the exact recipe, so this is my guess version!  It has good intentions to be healthy with the berries and flaxseeds, however the cream on top kind of defeats the object .... Oh well!

Serves 2

Handful of blackberries (more for serving)
4 tablespoons of porridge oats
1 tablespoon of golden caster sugar
100ml milk
double cream

Put a large handful of the berries in a pan with the sugar and just enough water to cover. 
Cook over a low heat until the berries cook down and the mix begins to bubble.
Next add the porridge oats and continue to stir.
After a few minutes add the milk and bring back up to the boil.  You may need to add more water or milk to the porridge whilst it's cooking, as the amount of liquid you need will vary according to the type of oats you are using.
The porridge should be a pretty purple color and fluffy in texture once cooked.
Serve warm with a splash of double cream, a handful of blackberries and a sprinkle or flaxseeds for added health!
