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.
