Gouryevskaya Kasha - Festive Semolina Recipe

We have already discussed some kasha facts and you know that in Russian "kasha" doesn't mean just buckwheat kasha but any kind of porridge (cereal).

But the best known Russian kasha is Guryevskaya kasha. According to the legend it was called "Guryevskaya" after the Russian Minister of Finance count Dimitry Guryev who lived in the beginning of the 19th century.

Gouryevskaya KashaIngredients

1 c semolina
2 1/2 c milk
2 tb butter
2 tb sugar
2 c dense cream
2/3 c nuts
2 c canned fruits
1/2 c sugar
1/2 ea lemon
vanilla, salt


Take a not very deep pan. Put cream (must be dense) into the hot oven. As soon as there is a pink skin on the cream, take it carefully away on the plate. Be careful not to tear. Do it until you have 6-7 skins. Boil a viscous kasha (mush) on milk. Add butter, sugar (2 tb), vanilla, salt and mix very well. Put kasha into the oven to warm up for 30 minutes. Add the rest of baked cream to kasha. Next >>

This recipe's author suggests to serve Gouryevskaya Kasha with apricot puree, and I'm sure it's pretty delicious. But actually you may serve it with any kind of confiture (strawberry, cherry etc) and fresh berries.
