Making porridge overnight on your range cooker

Overnight creamy porridge? Measure your oats and water (one part oats to two of water) and put into a pan. Put the lid on and set the pan onto the back of your range cooker in the evening. Next morning, move the pan to the simmering plate and stir once. It will boil before you have made your cup of tea or coffee to accompany it and be super creamy and delicious!
