Baked Halvah

3 cups farina (cream of wheat)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter
4 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup slivered almonds, blanched

2 1/2 cup sugar
3 cup water
1 piece of stick cinnamon
2 or 3 whole cloves

Mix farina with cinnamon and set aside. Cream butter in a bowl. In
another bowl, beat egg yolks with the sugar until thick. Add to the butter
and beat very well. Beat egg whites until stiff, then fold alternately with
the farina into the butter-egg mixture. Add almonds and mix gently. Put into a
buttered pan. Bake in preheated 350 F. oven for 45 min.

Prepare syrup by boiling all of the ingredients for about 8 minutes. Remove and
discard cinnamon and cloves. Pour syrup over hot halvah. Cool, serve.
