Whiskey and oatmeal...that got my curiosity going. I made this with topping 1 and used homemade vanilla extract. I made the oats as directed, sprinkled brown sugar over the oats and then drizzled the whiskey/vanilla mixture over the oats. I added half a banana cut into slices and topped everything off with the whipped cream. Delicious and satisfying. I didn't really taste the whiskey at all...it may have been due to the banana slices. Made for ZWT4.

This made this last night, I didn't have any Amarula like I thought I did when I first decided to make this for the ZWT Dessert Challenge. I used Hot Dam*! Cinnamon Schnapps as a sweetener instead of sugar For some reason my whipping cream didn't whip up very well. That's okay I used it anyways. It sweetened the oatmeal without being too sweet or overpoering the oatmeal. I used 2 shots of the Hot Damn! which was just about right. Thanks for sharing your recipe Engrossed. Made for the ZWT Dessert Challenge and the Cafe ZMAKK Gyosies.

Yummy! I just used a splash of Amarula and it adds lots of flavor without much alcohol. I'm reading this cookbook and it's about chefs on a safari, so they are creating fun African-European fusion dishes for people on vacation; since they're out "in the bush", perhaps a splash of liquor helps make it through a day dealing with snakes and crocodiles. I wonder about my Dad, who calls oatmeal "gruel"...perhaps a splash of Jack Daniels would convert him to like it! When I made this, the milk spilled over and the burner was difficult to clean, so stay close when it's about to boil. Fun recipe!

Yummy! I omitted the alcohol and since I was out of whipped cream, used regular cream, mixed with the vanilla extract. Great for breakfast! Made for ZWT4.

If I could I'd start my morning off with this. Since I can not I'll have to save it for my evening meal. I used the 2nd topping for mine. Nothing like having a hot bowl of creamy oatmeal with a kick! I only had a little whipped cream left but that really tops off this dish. Thank you for posting. I made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 round 3 the *African Region* I'm playing on the team *Tastebud Tickling Travelers* Go team go!
