🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
30-50 55 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🥚 3 large eggs
  • 🍬 149 g granulated sugar
  • 🧂 0.38 tsp salt
  • 🍦 1 tsp vanilla
  • 🌾 210 g all-purpose flour
  • 💨 2 tsp baking powder
  • 🧈 113 g melted butter
  • 🍬 some confectioners' sugar

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 pizzelle iron
  • 1 cooking rack
  • 1 scissors

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Beat the eggs, granulated sugar, salt, and vanilla until well combined.

Step 2

Stir in the all-purpose flour and baking powder, mixing until smooth.

Step 3

Add the melted butter, again mixing until smooth; the batter will be thick and soft.

Step 4

Heat your pizzelle iron. Grease it as directed in the manufacturer's instructions. As the iron heats, the batter will stiffen.

Step 5

Cook the pizzelle according to the instructions that came with your iron. In general, they'll take between 45 seconds and 2 1/2 minutes to brown.

Step 6

Remove the pizzelle from the iron, and cool on a cooking rack. If desired, use a pair of scissors to trim any ragged edges.

Step 7

Dust cooled pizzelle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.


Flavor to taste: classic pizzelle are often flavored with anise extract or anise seed. Butter-rum, lemon, or rum flavors are also delicious. Simply add extract to the batter to taste. Start with 1/4 teaspoon; amounts will vary a lot, depending on the strength of the extract you choose.


One reader suggests the best way to grease your pizzelle iron is to dip a towel in vegetable oil, and wipe it all over the iron's interior plates. This helps avoid the sticky residue you may get from spraying the iron with non-stick spray.
