This is a great recipe for using left-over breakfast cereals. Farina is the cereal used in this recipe, but vitos, cream of wheat, or any other breakfast cereal may be used in the same way.

Cereal may be also cooked especially for the purpose if there is none on hand and the dessert is desired. In this event, it should be cooked in the usual way and may be used either warm or cold.
