This is the only way I can get my family to eat cream of wheat or farina. It's the perfect comfort food on a cold winter's morning.

Absolutely delicous. I made no changes or substitutions. The kids had seconds and ate everything that was left in the pan. They could not stop talking about how good it was! Next time, I'll try this with raisins or chopped apples and see if I can't pull it off.

This was delicious. I am only making enough for one so I cut the measurements a little under half. I also am half asleep & used oatmeal before my mind caught up with the fact it said cream of wheat. It was still delicious I just drained off some of the liquid. Update - I made with cream of wheat the next morning. Excellent. Thanks!

I usually use more evaporated millk to water, and just use vanilla, butter, and sugar. So this was an interesting and yummy change of pace. 4 stars because it didn't knock my socks off, but we liked it a lot. Thanks for giving me the chance to switch things up a bit!
