Boyne Valley recipes for Darkness Into Light


Serves 2


• 100g Oats

• 2 tablespoons of dried cranberries

• 1 tablespoon of cranberry sauce (optional)

• 2 tablespoons of Boyne Valley Honey

• ¼ tsp fine sea salt

• 250 ml milk of choice

• 250 ml water

• 1 tablespoon of white chocolate chips

For the topping

• White chocolate chips

• Dried cranberries

• Boyne Valley Honey


• Add the oats, honey, salt, milk and water to a saucepan.

• Stir everything together and then place over a medium heat.

• Continue to stir the oats frequently as the mixture heats up. Once it begins to bubble, turn the temperature down and continue cooking until the porridge thickens and the oats are cooked (about 5-6 minutes).

• Add the white chocolate chips and stir them through as they melt.

• Divide between two bowls and top with dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and a drizzle of honey.


Servings - 4 - 6


• 1 small loaf of challah or brioche bread or half of a large loaf, sliced

• 60g Boyne Valley Honey

• 375ml full fat milk

• 3 large eggs

• ½ tsp cinnamon

• 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Raspberry or Cranberry Sauce

• ½ a small jar of raspberry jam or cranberry sauce

• 40g Boyne Valley Honey

• 1 tbsp boiling water


• Place bread into a large dish, ideally in a single layer.

• Whisk together the honey, milk, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla in a large jug.

• Pour the mixture over the bread and leave to soak for 15 minutes.

• Then transfer the bread to your oven safe dish that you will bake the bread in.

• Pour over any remaining liquid from the dish you soaked the bread in.

• Place the dish into the fridge for an hour or overnight.

• Preheat your oven to 180C (350F).

Bake the French Toast for 30 - 35 minutes.

• Meanwhile whisk together the sauce ingredients. I would have loved to serve this with cranberry sauce but it was a little too early for me to pick some up!

(This would be a beautiful addition on Christmas morning.)

• Serve baked French toast with some Greek yogurt, cream or even honey sweetened mascarpone or ricotta cheese, some fresh berries and a mighty dollop of that that loosened out and honey infused fruit jam or sauce.
