So, I have been making porridge recently as feel it's a healthy option. It's been a great success and I'm really liking it. This is with rolled oats, not instant. I add some stuff - sultanas and some Naturya Superfood Breakfast Boost Cacao Crunch (stupid expensive and not that great, but had to try). Anyway, my point. I have been making it on the hob and it takes about ten minutes all told. I like to let it rest at the end, so the perfect time to clean the pan. And that really takes some scrubbing. My plan was to try in the microwave. I was going to skip the pan cleaning which was wonderful and take half the time. Googled and all seemed good. Not everyone felt it was as nice, but I was willing to give it a shot. Anyway, 2 mins in stir. Back in for another 2 minutes. Take out bowl and remove porridge from the microwave - about 15 minutes. Make porridge on the hop, another ten minutes. Why didn't anyone tell me this was going to happen!
