DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Gather Ingredients.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • 3. Put the butter in the microwave-safe bowl, and heat 15 seconds at a time until mostly melted.
  • 4. Mix farina, sugar and butter in a bowl.
  • 5. Mix the baking soda and baking powder, then stir into the yogurt in another bowl. When mixed, add it to the farina mixture and blend together.
  • 6. Grease the baking pan with a little shortening and pour the batter inches (As an option, you can drizzle the top with 2 tablespoons of yogurt.).
  • 7. Using a knife, score the top of the batter into medium-sized rectangles -- or to be a bit fancier, try diamond shapes! (You'll probably make 12-16 pieces.) Place a blanched almond in the middle of each piece.
  • 8. Using your oven mitts, put the pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until it's brown on top.
  • 9. When the cake is done, it out of the oven. Let it cool for 10 minutes while you clean up the kitchen.
  • 10. Drizzle honey over the top. Cut along the lines you scored.
