    Does it not just kinda crumble when you cut into it once it's set? Sounds like another good alternative, thanks.

    Not that I've found:D

    Cooked couscous goes very clidgy if left to itself - and thats just what you want in those circumstances. Just give it a bit of a helping hand by pushing it down firmly into whatever you are using as a mould and it will harden up nicely.

    (To me these days - said mould is likely to consist of one of those flexible silicon baking thingies. You could always make individual little cake-ettes by using silicon cupcake thingies as moulds.)

    :rotfl:im pretty sure the porridge drawer was an urban myth(a bit like the wild hairy mountain haggis),i remember a story in the Broons book one year(Scottish cartoon book) where Paw Broon made the porridge too thick,poured it into a drawer,let it set and they ate it in slices.:rotfl:

  • ive seen it mentioned on here and whilst watching hugh last night talking about breakfast, I thought porridge in a drawer could be an ideal solution for dh, as he leaves for work at 6.30 each morning.

    also is it really kept in a drawer?

    why is getting porridge ready for a 0630 start hard?
    takes a few minutes in the microwave
    I make up my lunch,coffee and breakfast for leaving as early as 0230
  • sorry was trying to sort out a baby at the same time, meant to say hes not normally in the mood for breakfast at that time, however about 8ish is when he gets hungry and working on a building site the whole day theres not many facilities for them to use, as he loves porridge I thought this would have been a good alternative for him
