I loved this recipe, I modified it just a little. I used 4 cups of water and 1 cup of steel cut oatmeal. It was very creamy. If you want it a little thicker I would use about a 1/4cup more of steel cut oats. It cooked on low for 9 hrs. You don't have to cook it that long though, 7 hrs would be good.
