Classic oatmeal as I had it in England - the salt and butter taste is typical and I love it. Very good with the addition of the banana and raisins. I used almond milk for topping. Thanks for sharing :)

This was very good. We enjoyed it for breakfast this morning. We enjoyed the bananas and raisins on top of the porridge. Made as written, except the salt, forgot it. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.
