Russian Semolina Cake (Mannik)

I tested this semolina cake with you at the cooking workshop and it was very appreciated by everyone. It is a traditional Russian baking, which is cooked on any occasion as a bread, cake (if you put some filling and topping). It has a very porous texture and is soft and fragile, it will surely please even the most capricious - in addition it cooks very simply, without special techniques and super ingredients.

The filling can be different - nuts, chocolate, raisins, dried fruit, etc. - on top go greased with jam, melted chocolate, or simply with powdered sugar.


1 cup
1 cup
1 cup
100 g
2 pieces
0.25 tsp
White flour
1 cup
Baking powder
10 g
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
Dark chocolate
100 g
for the filling

Step by step


Put the semolina in a bowl, add the kefir and mix well so that they are not lumpy.

Let this composition soak the semolina well for about 2 hours.


After this time you will notice that the composition will thicken well.


Melt the butter and mix with the sugar.


Add this composition to the semolina with kefir and mix well.

Then add eggs and salt, mix well.


And the last one is flour mixed with baking powder, vanilla and chocolate cut into small pieces.

Mix well with the target.


Pour the dough into a tray lined with baking paper (here I have a silicone tray, so do not spread it and do not grease it with anything) and put it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes.


Be careful not to keep it too long in the oven, 30 minutes is very enough - the cake browns and grows nicely.


Leave it in the tray for about 15 minutes then take it out carefully and put powdered sugar or melted white chocolate on top.


Serve with great pleasure and enjoy :)

Good appetite!
