Farina bread/muffins

One of my favorite breads to make and eat is Farina Bread!If you didn't know, farina is wheat. Cream of Wheat is actually farina.

Eating dried corn (corn meal products) is discouraged in How To Eat To Live so we make this which is just like cornbread.

Here is the recipe I use most. It is not quite as sweet as Jiffy but it's sweeter than Grandma's, LOL! I sometimes make muffins.

I serve this with bean soup. Also my daughter likes farina muffins with milk and yogurt and fruit for breakfast. It is a fortified cereal so it has similar nutrients to oatmeal and some cold cereals.

Farina Bread
1c wheat flour
1c farina
1/2 c raw sugar
2T baking powder
1t salt
1c buttermilk
2 eggs
1/2 t vanilla (optional)
1/2 stick butter melted

Melt butter in a baking pan (glass; 8x8 or pie plate), set aside. In a large bowl combine all ingredients including melted butter. Mix well. Pour into greased (from melted butter) pan . Bake 30-35 minutes on 350-375 degrees until toothpick comes out clean.
Note: All cakes and bread should rest for 24 hours before serving.
