    a) A (usually deep) round baking pan with a hollow tube in the center. See for example here.

    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] Farina is Italian for flour. See here.

    My grandmother referred to Cream of Wheat cereal as farina, but if you're asking in the context of a cake recipe, I don't recommend that substitution. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks everyone. I was asking in the context of an American cookery book.

    I believe Farina and Cream of Wheat are exactly the same product. In parts of Europe, Germany at least, Farina is a hot (breakfast) Cereal just as Cream of Wheat is here. I'm not sure, but it may even be a Brand Name on the continent. When I worked in a ship Chandelrey it is what we sold to German crewed ships that called at the port, when they ordered Farina.
