At 90 seconds cooking time (1000 Watts)this was just getting hot, nowhere near cooking. I put it back in the microwave and cooked another minute or so. It was a big thick mass of sticky dry goo. I gave it two stars since It wasn't so bad that I needed to throw it out. But it was far from delicious. I tried adding a dash of salt, a bit of butter, another splash of milk. They all made it a bit better, but not yummy. The vanilla didn't seem to add any flavor either. I love dried cherries in my oatmeal - thought this would be a quicker version.... but I'll stick with my stove top. Sorry.

I really loved this one, instead of dried cherries I used some leftover canned cherries, left out the sweetner but served with a dollop of vanilla yoghurt. Mmm good!

I mixed everything together except for the sweetener and since I like my oats creamy, added a 1/2 cup of water in addition to the milk. I nuked it on high for 90 seconds only to find it was not cooked at all so I put it back for 6 more minutes (I normally do microwave oatmeal for 8 minutes.) After that it was nice and creamy, just how I like it. I topped it with a sprinkle of demerara sugar and added more milk. 90 seconds is definitely not enough cooking time, even in the microwave. I will definitely make this again as I love the taste of cherries and vanilla; it just needs more time to cook.
