    Is it OK to microwave it until it bubbles and rises?

    This is how I make it and it comes out yummy.

    I mix it in a litre size jug with warm water using the hand blender for about 30 seconds, then pour it into a microwavable bowl and put it in the microwave for 1 min 15 sec until it starts to bubble up. When it cools it goes really thick and yummy.

    I thought you were meant to microwave it for longer - you must have a fab machine!

    I don't blitz mine because it comes out like rubber, I mix it and then microwave for 40 sec, let settle then the final 20 seconds.

    I love my porridge!

    You shouldn't really m/wave it for more than one minute.

    The porridge is the only CD meal that can be m/waved for more than 15 seconds (think it's 15 seconds anyway). But one minute is the limit for porridge

    I am the weirdo who has no microwave... panicked at first and though I couldn't have the porridge, but tried it on cooker top and it works fine. I use a very gentle heat from cold and mix the whole time, and never let it get anywhere near boiling so hopefully the nutritional content isn't affected. It comes out fab and I have it with nutmeg or cinnamon. Yum!
