I have made this twice now, but I reduced the oats to 1/2 a mug as I found 1 mug too much for 2 of us. I have a small 1.5lt cookware slow cooker i use for sauces, Rice pudding and now use it for porridge. Also I cook it for only 2 hours as it made the porridge to mushy cooking it overnight. Just got this mornings porridge out, again only cooked it for 2 hours and its a nice texture and not over cooked. Thank you for sharing your recipe, beats standing over a pan in the morning.
