Ingredients for manna on kefir with apples
- 1 cup semolina
- 1 cup flour;
- 1 glass of kefir;
- 1 cup of sugar;
- 125 g butter or margarine;
- 1 tsp no baking soda top;
- 1 tbsp. l. lemon juice or 9% vinegar;
- 6-8 medium apples.
Method of preparing manna on kefir with apples
We measure the food in the same 200 g glasses.
Pour the semolina with kefir, mix and leave for half an hour.
In the meantime, we will prepare the apples: wash them, clean them of the cores with partitions and seeds, but you can leave the skin on. Then we cut the apples into small slices or pieces.
I took 7 medium sized apples. Peeled - 500-600 g, but you can put more in the dough, up to 1 kg. Mannik cannot be spoiled with apples, like porridge with butter! It is better to choose apples of hard sweet and sour varieties, moderately juicy - Antonovka, Simerenko.
The semolina has absorbed kefir - it's time to knead the dough! Pour sugar into a bowl with semolina.
Melt the butter and pour into a bowl, stir.
Then add flour to the dough. It is better to sift it - then the baking turns out to be fluffier and more tender.
We make a depression in the flour and pour soda there, quench it with lemon juice or vinegar, and immediately mix the dough thoroughly until smooth.
Pour the apples into the dough and mix again so that they are evenly distributed. If you think that there are a lot of apples - do not worry, this is the secret of the taste of apple manna.
Prepare a baking dish: grease the bottom and sides with a piece of softened butter, and then sprinkle with semolina. It is important to grease and sprinkle the pan thoroughly so that there are no “islands” left for the cake to stick to.
As for the form - you can use a form with a hole, as in the photo, or a silicone, or even just a cast iron pan. You can bake one large manna - or small semolina cakes in silicone molds.
Tasty in any case, the baking time will differ: small cupcakes will be baked in 50-55 minutes; manna in a wide form with low sides is baked for about 1 hour, in a high one with a hole - about an hour and a half.
We put the form with manna in the oven, preheated to 180 C, and bake until a dry wooden stick (when the dough is sampled in the highest place) and a ruddy top.
We take the finished manna out of the oven and let stand in the form for 10-15 minutes. It smells amazing, and you can't wait to try, but if you hurry to shake the hot cake out of the mold, it can break and crumble.
To make it easier to get the cake, you can gently pry it around the edges with a knife - although, if the mold is well oiled, shaking out the manna is easy. Cover the dish with a dish, turn it over, lightly slap the bottom with your palm - and a pie on a platter!
Fresh pie is very tiny, it crumbles in your hands, so you need a very sharp knife to cut it. Better yet, just break off the portions and enjoy homemade apple cakes!
Mannik with apples is delicious both warm and cold. And if you like the recipe and want to experiment, add pears or cherries instead of apples, pieces of apricot or peach. And you will have a new tea cake every time!
