Ingredients for manna on kefir with apples
- 1 cup of semolina;
- 1 cup of flour;
- 1 cup of kefir;
- 1 cup of sugar;
- 125 g butter or margarine;
- 1 tsp. no top baking soda;
- 1 tbsp. l lemon juice or 9% vinegar;
- 6-8 medium apples.
The method of cooking mannica on kefir with apples
Measure out the products of the same glasses, a volume of 200 g.
Manku fill up with kefir, mix and leave for half an hour.
In the meantime, we will prepare the apples: we will wash, clean from hearts with partitions and seeds, but you can not remove the skin. Then cut the apples into small slices or slices.
I took 7 medium sized apples. In purified form - 500-600 g, but you can put in the dough and more, up to 1 kg. You won't spoil the mannik with apples like porridge with butter! It is better to choose apples of hard sweet-sour varieties, moderately juicy - Antonovka, Simerenko.
Munk absorbed kefir - it's time to knead the dough! We pour out sugar in 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 baking turns more fluffy and tender.
In the flour, make a well and pour the soda there, quench with lemon juice or vinegar, and immediately mix the dough until homogeneous.
Pour the apples into the dough and mix again so that they are distributed evenly. If it seems to you that there are many apples - do not worry, this is exactly the secret of apple mannik taste.
Prepare a baking pan: brush the bottom and walls with a piece of softened butter, and then sprinkle with the decoy. It is important to lubricate and sprinkle the form carefully so that there are no “islands” to which the cake can stick.
As for the shape - you can use this shape with a hole, as in the photo, or silicone, or even just a cast-iron pan. You can bake one large manna - or small semolina muffins in silicone tins.
Tasty in any case, baking time will vary: small cupcakes will be baked in 50-55 minutes; manna in wide form with low sides is baked for about 1 hour, in high with a hole - about one and a half hours. We put the form with the mannica in the oven, preheated to 180C, and bake to a dry wooden stick (at the test of the dough in the highest place) and ruddy top.
We remove the ready manna from the oven and let it stand in the form of 10-15 minutes. It smells amazing and 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 shape is well-oiled, it is easy to shake out the manna. Cover the dish with a dish, turn it over, lightly pat it on the bottom with a palm - and the cake is on the dish!
A fresh cake is very tiny, it crumbles in the hands, so a very sharp knife is needed for cutting. And the best - just break off portions and enjoy homemade apple pastries!
Mannik with apples is tasty as warm and cooled. And if you like the recipe and want to experiment, add pear, apricot or peach pieces instead of pear apples or cherries. And you will have a new tea cake every time!
