1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted

Optional: Add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to dry ingredients for cocoa wafers.

Tools: For this recipe you will need a "pizzelle maker".

(Makes about 30)


Preheat the pizzelle maker according to manufacturers instructions.

In a large bowl, add flour, sugar and baking powder. If you are making cocoa wafers, this is where you will also add the cocoa.

Whisk together and set aside.

In a new large bowl, add eggs and vanilla and whisk.

Stir in melted butter.

Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until blended.

Follow the instructions on the pizzelle maker for how much batter to pour for each pizzelle, and for how long to cook.

Generally with most machines you will pour a spoonful and cook for under a minute.
