      What a cracking idea! A great lover of porridge here - has to be well cooked though! And this idea is a great way to wake up to hot creamy porridge! I'm not a skinny milk man, so I might substitute full cream :-) Great hub, thanks.

      I make a point of having oatmeal almost everyday because, aside from the fact it is really great hot breakfast, it also has been proven to reduce cholesterol by 18% over just three weeks time! So it's good to have these new angles on how to cook it in so many great ways!
