Well, here we are again, dear readers. And it happened on occasion to cook mannik on sour cream - a wonderful dessert well known to everyone since childhood. But after all, we all come from our past, which means pampering yourself with familiar tastes is always a holiday. Such a holiday today will be mannik on sour cream, baked in the oven according to our signature recipe. But first we turn to the history of this wonderful dish.
From one word, semolina for many gets cold inside and not casually. Semolina porridge with lumps and a film on top is a nightmare for more than one generation of children. We hasten to reassure you - the magnificent and appetizing mannik on sour cream has nothing to do with this unforgettable dish. On the contrary, it is a delicious, sweet and simply wonderful dessert. And the first opinion of historians says that mannik is a dish of Russian cuisine. And since we find the first mention of semolina in Russia around the 13th century, the recipe for a similar dessert, though in a somewhat simplified form, also comes from somewhere there.
According to another version, mannik is a relative of a similar oriental pie called "Basbusa", which was prepared long before our ancestors even knew about semolina. It is difficult to say who is right here, but one thing is clear - they loved mannik before and now they love it no less, and they will definitely love after us. Moreover, its recipe has not changed much since its inception. And besides the wonderful taste, mannik is also easy to prepare, it never burns, and if there is a cream or jam filling, it can easily turn into a cake. Isn't it lovely? What else do you need to know in order to quickly run to cook it. Absolutely nothing! Let's start and bake a delicious mannik on sour cream.
Personally, I am not a big fan of semolina and I think it is not very useful, and therefore semolina too. And therefore mannik on sour cream for me is more about pleasure than about benefit. Nevertheless, the benefits cannot be leveled, of course, because such a cake can easily turn not just into a crumbly mannik on sour cream, but also into a delicious birthday cake. And no birthday cake. In any case, if you layer it with homemade jam or coconut condensed milk, it will definitely be much more useful than a semi-finished store product or even worse than a ready-made factory dessert.
