It’s a mix of savoury and sweet in the form
of a Maltabella ice-cream. It’s the porridge our mothers ‘sold’ to us, as children, as chocolate porridge. It’s actually malted grain sorghum. Serve this ice-cream with stewed fruit and/or prunes, and a drizzle of Amarula cream for a sensational end to a breakfast.
