The zest of this pie is its filling, which makes the pastry completely different from the classic manna, which contains kefir or sour cream and the recipe is fundamentally different from ours. By slightly adjusting the products, you can prepare fruit or berry manna with a bright and pronounced taste.
Whichever recipe you choose, making a manna with fruits and berries is as easy and simple as the most common homemade pie. The total cooking time takes no more than 50 minutes.

Pour semolina into a deep bowl, pour into a deep bowl and add sugar.
Pour in a little less than a glass of boiled warm water and stir the cereals and sugar until smooth. Leave it on for 40-60 minutes, at which time the cereal should swell.
Over time, add wheat flour with baking soda. Cover with oil and stir with a fork.
Then, beat in one egg and knead into a smooth, uniform dough.
As a result, the dough for the semolina pie should not turn out liquid and not thick, without any lumps.
The filling should be regarded as a feature of the dish. It is the filling that gives a special flavor, which can be replaced at will with something else.
Cut the apples into medium cubes. Grease a mold with vegetable oil and pour in a third of the prepared dough. Place the apples on top and crush the apples with cinnamon, also powdered sugar.
Pour the second third of the dough over the apples and lay out the berries from the currants.
Transfer the rest of the dough, flatten the surface and place in the hot oven. Cook at 170 degrees - 40-45 minutes.
As soon as the manna is covered with a ruddy crust, lay it out on a flat work surface and rub it abundantly with powdered sugar.
Cut the manna into portions, put on saucers, garnish with berries.
As you can see, baking a delicious manna in the oven is not difficult as well as an ordinary homemade pie from improvised products.
To give a beautiful look and improve taste, sprinkle the manna with icing sugar, glaze or homemade jam. Can be divided into separate cakes and filled with pastry cream or condensed milk, like a real cake.
