    I have followed the instructions, and it ends with me having lumpy porridge.

    Does anyone have any great instructions ?

    I've ended up following the instructions and it going lumpy before but the last couple of times it's turned out fine. I used a hand whisk to mix it before putting into the microwave, microwaved for a minute at a lower wattage (750, not 900 which is the top wattage on mine). Stirred and whisked it again after a minute, making sure that any lumps forming are blended into the liquid. Put it back in for a minute and then stirred like mad when finished to mix it properly. Leave for a couple of minutes to stand before eating.

    I used exactly the amount of milk stated (otherwise it was too watery).

    I tend to just guess with mine. I don't have skimmed milk in the house as my lads only have blue milk so I water that down slosh it in a bowl and sling it in the microwave and keep stopping it to stir it up, probably for 1.30 or 2 minutes altogether.

    The thing is that we dont but skimmed milk for the house, only semi skimmed. But I am tempted by the thought of cookies, hmm.

    I just made the cookie, and yes I think I like the porridge that way, and the texture came out really nice and everything.

    Glad you liked it - it's always good to pass along ideas :) I've gone from considering returning my porridge to planning on getting more packets in my next order!
