We’ve made this recipe extra smooth with no lumps I remember growing up with having cornmeal porridge first thing in the morning before going to school mostly made with coconut milk, and sweetened with condensed milk instead of sugar and serve with toast bread with butter. I love my porridge a bit thin not thick!
