This is the type of deeply comforting breakfast that conjures memories of your childhood-wintry mornings spent in the warm kitchen while windows fogged and the din of dishes clinked gently in the sink. Pots of coffee sputtered while you set the table. Warning: may make you want to stay in your pajamas all day.

2 Tbutter
1 1⁄2 cboiling water
1 1⁄2 cmilk
2 Tbrown sugar

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly butter an 8-inch covered baking dish. Place the oats and 2 tbs. butter in a medium bowl. Pour boiling water over. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in milk, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and currants or raisins. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake, covered, for 30 to 35 minutes, or until bubbling. Serve with extra milk.
