Carnival chiacchiere (Angel's Wings) with Nutella®
INGREDIENTS for 8-10 portions
300 g Plain flour
50 g Sugar
30 g Aniseed
1 Glass of Vin Santo
Grated zest of 1 unwaxed orange
1 Pinch of bicarbonate of soda
Oil for frying
120-150 g Nutella® (15 g/portion)
Per questa deliziosa ricetta, la quantità perfetta di Nutella® è 15 g a porzione!
Put the flour in a pile on the pastry board and break the eggs into the middle. Add the sugar, the crushed aniseed, the Vin Santo, the orange zest and the bicarbonate of soda. Forcefully mix it all together, then roll out the dough into a very thin sheet.
Cut diamond shapes using a toothed wheel.
Fry them, a few at a time, in plenty of very hot oil. Then drain them and as they are each ready put them onto some absorbent paper to remove any excess grease. Dust the chiacchiere with icing sugar and serve them warm, garnishing with Nutella®.
Every single region of Italy has a different name for these: cenci, frappe, bugie, crostoli... But they always have the same unique, inimitable taste of chiacchiere, also known as Angel's Wings, presented in this recipe with Nutella®.
