"From: “The Africa Kitchen by Josie Stow and Jan Baldwin”. I changed this to use vanilla extract because otherwise you would have to make your own vanilla brown sugar. This also says in Africa they top the oatmeal with Amarula fruit cream liqueur instead of the whisky and vanilla brown sugar."

"What a fabulous way to start the day...a shot of good whiskey, health oats and i added the bananas too."
"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!"
"This is wonderful! Really a unique way of having oatmeal. Loved it. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers."
"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!"
