Porridge! Made with boiling water in a cup?!

I just tried this... Amazing!

My has easier access to boiling water than its microwave! So I tried making porridge with just boiling water today and it worked!

- Take a mug.
- Fill 2/3 with porridge oats
- Fill with water (just over the porridge) and stir fully.
- Put some sort of cover over the mug.
- Leave for a few minutes!

I'm probably going to take a lot of pressure from porridge naturalists! But I just thought I would let you guys know that this actually works- you don't need to buy those £1 little cups!

To make this officially a question.. Has anyone else tried it?!

I do this in a Tupperware as the lid helps keep the heat in!

I think I will use that method! The mug I used was just because I didn't think it would work!
I do this every morning although i use oatbran it works perfectly.
So you leave it until it stodges up?
I try to avoid using the Microwave and never would use it for porridge or buy microwave porridge .Aldi porridge is real nice and you heat it up on cooker but i try it your way.Thanks WesleyT

Yeah.. Well.. I guess you could leave it as long as you like/ use more or less water?
Yeah, good idea. pre made ones are a rip off!
Amazing? Really? Here's another one...

- Take a mug.
- Fill 2/3 with baked beans (make sure you open the can first)
- No need to fill with water
- Put some sort of cover over the mug.
- Leave for a few minutes!

Wahey warmed up baked beans! You can even add some toast to the equation and I can instruct you how to do that as well if you like. Now there is no need to buy beans on toast from a cafe you CAN do it yourself.

Here's another one just for you:

- Provide absolutely nothing of value to anyone, and cease to have any reason to exist.

Actually.. I think you already have that down!
