Since childhood, everyone remembers the words “... scraped the bottom of the barrel, ... kneaded the dough ...”. Old Russian cuisine is unusually simple in technology, the products that it uses do not need to look for three or nine lands, especially nowadays, and economy and frugality are its main credo.
Semolina, boiled yesterday, soured milk, a little flour, and what's left there, “in the bottom of the barrel”? All is useful. A mannik is a dessert, like that of a grandmother or great-grandmother, like eight hundred years ago - simple, affordable, and therefore brilliant.
Mannik on yogurt - the basic technological principles
The main composition of the mannik is semolina, which appeared in Russia in the twelfth century, and about the same period the first Russian kilns appeared. So, the story of the appearance of the famous Guryev porridge in the nineteenth century is just the evolution of manna, which can be considered, at the same time, the first Russian cake or cake, which casually turned porridge into, covered with a golden brown crust.
What was the first manna in Russia and what has changed? Semolina is the first whole-wheat flour. In addition to semolina, milk products were a part of porridge - naturally, the ancestors were not familiar with kefir, but cream and sour cream, milk and yogurt were already present in the diet, if, of course, talking about the princely family, and not about the prince's servants - the last cooked porridge on the water. Porridge must be very thick, "so that the spoon was standing."
It is clear that porridge is not cooked from sour milk. But the remnants of dinner, even very rich ancestors, were never thrown away, and had no refrigerators. From this respect for food, harvested by hard work, for centuries the traditions of Russian cuisine have evolved, largely preserved to this day. Therefore, even the soured semolina is suitable for manna, and there is nothing to be surprised at, because the effect of pomp will be the same as that of cereals in combination with yogurt or sour cream.
In addition to semolina and milk (water), porridge was cooked with the addition of honey - sugar appeared only several centuries later, and was more expensive than honey, up to the beginning of the twentieth century. So, traditional Russian pastries are only honey. Now, of course, you can easily allow yourself to use sugar in pies, and with honey, you’re lucky: if it is available, if it is real, if you want the mannica on yogurt to turn out the way it should be. What is a manna without berries? With this, too, there are no problems, and never was, in a country of endless forests. Choose any berries and fruits, what is, or what like. You can add them to porridge (dough) or decorate a dessert, or make a sweet sauce (jam, syrup, jam) to serve with the cake.
All of these components - the basis of baking, which has not changed over the past century. Gradually, over time, spicy spices appeared in the Russian cuisine, which were immediately introduced into the classic baking technology: cinnamon, vanilla, saffron, ginger and other flavors. Salt and soda in Russian cuisine also appeared quite late, and these ingredients were also a privilege of the nobility, therefore it was not accepted to add them to baking.
This is all you need to know about the original mannica recipes from the point of view of the history of the Russian dessert. You can also add a small clarification: in English cuisine there is a similar dish - Christmas pudding, with the same composition of ingredients, but the English dessert is steamed. Mannica has another name - krupenik, because it is made from cereals, and it may not necessarily be semolina.
Now about mannica on yogurt, everything is known, and you can start cooking dessert.

Mannicus on yogurt - useful tips and tricks
- In the preparation of the bulk dough, it is important to observe the same ratio of liquid and solid ingredients. Remember:
- Flour, cocoa, semolina, starch - dry ingredients;
- Sugar, eggs, honey, butter, milk or sour cream, fresh berries consist mainly of water, so they are considered the liquid part in the dough.
- The dough for manna, as a rule, should have the consistency of sour cream. This is a batter, and the principle of its preparation is similar to the preparation of biscuit. You can add eggs to it, not beating, but if they are pre-whipped, and carefully add to the dough, trying not to precipitate the foam, then the manna will be more lush and tender.
