I did add more oatmeal and water as I used a single GIANT plum and it looked more like fruit compote with a sprinkle of oatmeal rather than oatmeal with fruit. A teeny bit of brown sugar sweetened it more to my liking (sweet tooth) & brought out the flavors more for me nice combination of fruit, cinnamon, & lemon zest! Kids liked it, too! Thank you — this one’s a keeper!
