DIRECTIONS

  • Syrup:
  • Combine sugar, water, lemon juice and rind in a saucepan.
  • Stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Turn to low, and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Cool. Reserve 3/4 cup for square batter.
  • Squares:
  • Heat oven to 350°F
  • Grease an 8X8" or 13X9" pan (depending on whether you want thick or thin squares).
  • Combine Cream of Wheat, yogurt, butter, baking powder, and 3/4 cup cooled syrup. Mix well, but do not beat.
  • Pour into pan, spreading evenly. Shake and lightly drop pan to settle mixture.
  • Lightly mark squares or diamonds (without cutting through) and place one or two almonds in the centre of each one.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes. Remove and turn oven up to 375°F.
  • Cut squares through and return to oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Pour remaining cooled syrup over top and let sit until syrup is absorbed (this takes a long time, so I usually make these the night before I need them).
