Air fryer chatter

Air fryer chatter

We taste the delicious chatter in the air fryer, an even lighter and more fragrant version of the typical Carnival desserts.

We prepare them all over Italy and we call them differently: whether they are frappe, cenci or lie, the recipe is always the same and so is their taste. Today, however, we present them to you in an even newer guise, thanks to the preparation of the chiacchiere in the air fryer. When cooked in an air fryer they are lighter, but their flavor is the same, you don't have to worry! By avoiding frying them in a lot of oil, the chatter in the airfryer is visibly lighter ; their color however remains golden and their consistency is equally soft.

These sweets are prepared with a few common ingredients. Their secret remains the addition of sparkling wine , which allows bubbles to form on the dough, giving them a little touch of crunchiness. A few minutes for cooking, lots of icing sugar for decoration and… you're done!

Preparing the recipe for chiacchiere in the air fryer

  1. The first thing to do is shell the eggs in a bowl and beat them with a fork.
  2. In another bowl, pour the granulated sugar and add the soft butter, cut into cubes .
  3. Add a pinch of salt and mix the two ingredients; then, add the sifted flour.
  4. Start kneading vigorously with your hands. As it mixes, add the wine, then the vanillin and, finally, the baking powder.
  5. When all the ingredients are blended, add the beaten eggs. Knead on a floured work surface and let them absorb completely, obtaining an elastic dough.
  6. Leave the dough on the surface, covering it with a cloth. It must rest for about 30 minutes .
  7. After this time, you can proceed to the shape. Divide the dough into pieces and roll out each one to obtain a very thin sheet (a couple of cm long).
  8. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, or you can use a pasta machine.
  9. Once you have obtained the pastry, divide it into many rectangles (they can also have different dimensions) and, in the center of each, make a cut.
  10. At this point, lightly flour the inside of the air fryer basket.
  11. Place the chatter inside, avoiding overlapping them.
  12. Cook at 200°C for 3-5 minutes . When they are ready, let them cool on a tray, before sprinkling lots of icing sugar.
