I made a batch of pizzelles tonight with my electric pizzelle maker. They did not turn out as crisp as I remember from the past, more soft and doughy, and thicker.
I think I used the same recipe I have always used. Here are the proportions:
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup butter
2 tsp baking powder
Most of the recipes I have seen are similar.
My pizzelle maker does not have a nonstick finish, which I had read somewhere may be a factor, so that should not be the problem.
One recipe I saw used a little less flour. Is that the problem?
Any other ideas?
I think I will try another batch if I can figure out what possibly went wrong.
