    Yeah... got to agree with you there.

    Though I always manage to burn the base, too much heat!

    Get it to boiling/simmering point, and then turn the heat off - it should continue to cook through as it slowly cools.

    Or use a haybox.

    40 grms Scott's Porage Oats
    260 grms milk
    4 minutes in microwave

    Time for a shower between pressing button and cool enough to eat.

    Stir with spoon
    Leave to stand while shower, dress etc.

    I do mine in a microwave. Have been hooked on it for breakfast this past year. I like to have some blueberries or sliced strawberries in it.

    Definitely blueberries. Blackcurrants or redcurrants work too, as do raspberries. Not that keen on strawbs.

    Made with semi skimmed milk, fruit on top, either blueberries, summer fruits or grapes and a swirl of cream on top.

    I put my fruit under the porridge (I make the porridge in a jug and then decant into the bowl on top of the fruit - the dog gets the remainder from the jug when it's cold as her lunchtime snack) - it bring out the flavour of strawberries wonderfully.

    The beauty of using a microwave is that you get a show as well as the mixture bubbles away. Rather like 'Monster from the Deep Lagoon'!! It used to keep my daughter entertained while I did other morning 'stuff'. :D

    This thread has made me happy... well it made me make a bowl of porridge which was yummy and warming on a chilling evening!

    Surely this thread should be in the Cookery section. I'm surprised someone hasn't alerted the mods ...
