Recipe by HeatherFeather

I copied this recipe down ages ago, always meaning to give it a try. I found it today in one of my piles of recipes and decided to share it. This is not a sweet bread. Supposedly, this recipe is from Liberia.

I have made this recipe a few times to use up a lot of farina. This isn't sweet so it's good for a breakfast/snack thing. I wouldn't use more than 1/2 cup of oil in this. The first time I made it I used 3/4 cup of oil and it was quite oily and unnecessary. I've thrown some frozen blueberries in it one time and that added a nice change to it.
