Those who receive US Government commodities (mostly low income and senior citizens) get a lot of Farina in their food packages. This is one of the best ways I have found to use it up instead of having it sit on the shelves. This month alone there were two boxes.

I prefer to use Cream of Wheat over than Farina. Very light and fluffy!

I liked the cream-of-wheat flavor -- very nostalgic for me. But they were unaccountably heavy, when I expected a light textured muffin. A little gritty, too. But this recipe helped me use up my cream of wheat, so thanks for posting!
