Kids of all ages love this --- I also added in some cinnamon and raisins but that is optional --- you can also make this in the microwave, I use an 8-cup pyrex measuring cup just remove a few times and stir --- I top this with a bit of 18% cream and sprinkle with a sugar/cinnamon topping --- the recipe is enough for 2-4 servings but I can eat the whole thing myself this is so good :)

This really hits the spot. Warm, creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness. My picky daughter and niece loved it.

I am not a kid and I LOVED this! I was able to use less sugar in the morning then at night a little more and eat for dessert too! Mine came out a little too thick but it was my fault I kept it on the heat a little too long. I still loved that thick gooey texture. Thank you!!

DELICIOUS!!! A great and tasty breakfast. I cut down the sugar to 1/4 cup and it was plenty sweet! Added raisins the kids ate it up. Thanks for a great recipe!
