"Like in an oil week, the pancakes flew into the ceiling!"

The word Maslenitsa gives us a kind and bright feeling in our soul - satiety, home comfort and fun, festivities.

Maslenitsa is a favorite holiday of all, traditional in Russia, but also the longest. It personifies the farewell of winter and the meeting of spring, is surrounded by rites of Slavic mythology and lasts 7 days. Celebrate it begins a week before Lent. The start date of the carnival changes every year and is tied to the Orthodox Easter.

Initially Maslenitsa was a pagan holiday, which eventually became part of the Orthodox Church. Our ancestors honored the sun as a god and brought him various gifts for the glory of a rich harvest, so that it warmed the earth and made it fertile. One of the symbols of the sun were flat cakes - round and ruddy, after eating which a person received light and heat. Soon, the cakes were replaced with pancakes.

Interestingly, the word “pancake” was formed by distorting the word “Mlin” from the verb “grind”. Pancakes are the main dish, the main treat and the Shrovetide symbol! Over a thousand years ago, pancakes appeared in Russia and their recipes changed many times. They were baked with various ingredients (on milk, kefir, brine, yeast) from different types of flour (corn, buckwheat, rye) and with many fillings (vegetable, buckwheat), and also ate with anything - butter, honey, sour cream, caviar fish

Pancakes are considered as a Russian traditional dish.

Pancakes for Shrovetide week they bake every day. From Monday to Wednesday, during the Narrow Shrovetide, not very much, since these days are devoted to housework, and now on Broad Maslenitsa, from Thursday to Sunday, when all the work is stopped and mass festivities begin, pancake abundance takes place.

Each of the seven days of Shrovetide has its own name, its meaning and its tradition of celebration.

The history and origin of the holiday

The origins of the holiday begin with deep antiquity, even before the appearance of Christianity in Russia. Previously, it was a pagan holiday of the revival of nature, and it was associated with the day of the vernal equinox.

But when Christianity appeared in Russia, the holiday became religious and its date began to be associated with the great fast. At that time, Carnival was called Cheese, and the week was Syropust.

The Slavs on this day met the new year, because it was celebrated in March. They didn’t skimp on food and didn’t limit themselves to having fun on that day, because it’s always been thought that how you celebrate this holiday, the year will pass. It is possible that even now you often hear this saying.

Maslenitsa in the masses was called broad, gluttonous, and sometimes even destructive. The name of the carnival itself appeared only in the 16th century, because during this period it was impossible to cook meat, but dairy products could be made, so you had to bake pancakes.

The holy feast is not only in Russia and the CIS. It is celebrated by almost all of Europe. In Western Europe, carnivals are generally organized, for the duration of which disputes cease and everywhere there is laughter and fun.

In Denmark, students arrange concerts. In England, women's run with pancakes.

Each country has its own zest and variation of this holiday. But he is everywhere considered sacred and personifies the rebirth of nature.

In the period of the Narrow Maslenitsa (Monday), all the hostesses were engaged in baking pancakes. Then they dressed up the effigy of Maslenitsa. He was taken with the help of a sleigh around the village. My mother-in-law sent a daughter-in-law to her parents that day, and in the evening with her father-in-law went to visit her matchmakers.

Second day - "Litters"

Tuesday was entirely devoted to young people who had not yet entered into marriage. From this day and got its name. It was on Tuesday that they sent matchmakers to future brides in order to celebrate the wedding at the end of the post. The day was spent in entertainment - riding with slides and fun. During these festivities young people looked after a couple.

This day the hostesses continued to bake pancakes and treated them to friends and relatives. Girls guessed on pancakes. They were made with a variety of fillings. With what stuff a girl will pull a pancake, her future husband will have such a character.

The third day - "Gourmet".

On Wednesday, prepared pancakes with a variety of fillings - mushrooms, honey, caviar, salmon meat, nuts, fruits. The son-in-law with relatives visited the mother-in-law. In every way she had to show her location to her son-in-law. During the feast, various scenes with the participation of the mother of his wife and son-in-law were played.

The girls especially for this day prepared the best outfits, in which they then traveled around the village, sang songs and made fun of unmarried guys.

The guys gave them pancakes and other sweets. Chocolate pancakes are perfect for the third day of celebration.

Cooking stages

First you need to make a dough. To do this, we break the eggs into a plate with high sides. There we pour vanilla and ordinary sugar and a small pinch of salt. Ingredients whisk whisk. Now, pour milk and water to the egg mixture. Mix the ingredients again.

In another dish combine cocoa, flour and baking powder. The mixture is added to the eggs, pre-sifted through a sieve. You need to do this in several approaches, without ceasing to stir the dough.

You need to stir the dough until all the lumps disappear. And the very last ingredient is vegetable oil. Beat everything up again.

Greased pan warmed over medium heat. The ladle unloads some dough into the pan. Fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, throw off on a plate.

Finished pancakes grease a small amount of butter. This will prevent sticking of products between themselves, as well as add additional flavor. So do with all the pancakes.

It remains to prepare the filling. Mascarpone cheese is ideal for her. Unload cheese, cocoa, powdered sugar in a plate and mix thoroughly.

Strawberries are cut in small slices. We begin to grease the pancakes with a cheese-chocolate mass, in its center we spread strawberries or other fruits, we wrap up a roll.

Finished products can be poured with melted chocolate or fruit jam.

Day four - "Razgul."

This day is characterized by the cessation of all work. The celebration took place with a special scale. Performances, street fights, horseback riding and feasts are only a small part of the celebration.

On the fourth day of Shrovetide, spring came into its own. People tried to reconcile on this day with those who had previously had differences.

Cooking secrets

Smash the eggs and separate the yolks from the proteins. Put them in separate bowls. To the yolks add sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk whisk to dissolve sugar. Pour the yogurt and pour out the mixture slightly.

Continuing to beat, add melted butter. Next, sift and gradually add flour to the dough.

Squirrels whip until foaming and mix with bulk.

Now, you need to heat the pan. Begin to fry. Serve pancakes with syrup, sour cream, various fruits and fillings of your choice.

Fifth day - "Toshchiny gatherings (evening)"

The name of this day speaks for itself. The son-in-law on Friday calls the mother-in-law to visit me. At the same time, he should cook pancakes himself, which he will treat his spouse's mother with. Before this, the mother-in-law sent products for future pancakes and even a ladle and a frying pan. As soon as the son-in-law finished cooking, he sent a call to the mother-in-law.

On this day, young spouses listened to the teachings of the older generation. After the treat, the son-in-law drove the mother-in-law through the village. If the mother-in-law was ill-tempered, the road with bumps was chosen. And if the wife's mother was affectionate - they rolled her on a flat road.

Buttered pancakes for kefir with greens are perfect for treating your beloved son-in-law and guests.
