Too Much Flour
It doesn’t take much — in this case, my mom and I added just 3/4 cup extra flour to the dough. The cookies tasted good but were dry and definitely crumbly. To make the cookies more tender, Betty Crocker suggests adding 2 to 4 tablespoons of softened butter, or 1/4 cup of sugar, to the batter.
Generally that floury taste can be attributed to several things. Too much flour, bad recipe, improper mixing or underbaking, but the most common culprit is too much flour. Too much flour is most usually caused by scooping with the measuring cup and is probably the most common kitchen mistake made today.
How do you get rid of extra flour?
Shake, spin, brush, or pat the rolled out dough to remove any flour which is not stuck to the surface. Frequently flip you dough as you roll it out. For flour tortillas, you can try rolling them out sandwiched between sheets of plastic wrap to drastically cut down the amount of flour needed.
Too much flour will make your cookies dry and crumbly. Too much sugar and butter can make sugar cookies spread and lose their shape when baked. This one requires a little patience because once you roll out your dough, you are ready to bake. Be patient and bake your cookies when the dough is really cold.
Q: Why are my cookies so puffy and cakey? Causes: Whipping too much air into the dough while creaming butter and sugar. Adding too many eggs.
This means that there is more flour in your measuring cup than there should be because you have compacted it. This results in too much flour being added and your cookies having a floury flavor. Rather, gently spoon the flour into the measuring cup until it reaches the required level. Never press it down.
Don’t Use Too Much Flour
When your sugar cookie is dry and chalky, it’s because you used too much flour. Be more sparing when you flour your rolling pin and countertop or pastry cloth. And for added moisture, brush the tops of the cookies with buttermilk before baking.
Some baked goods don’t contain acidic ingredients and they’ll have a bitter taste if you use baking soda. In this case, the recipe will call for baking powder instead. Baking powder is a combination of baking soda and an acidic ingredient, such as cream of tartar, and cornstarch to absorb moisture.
To prevent the pizza dough from sticking to the peel, many recipes advise using cornmeal or bread crumbs. While both coatings work, they also leave a gritty or crunchy residue on the bottom of the pizza.
Before placing your pizza peel or baking sheet in the oven, be sure to dust it with a little bit of flour before placing your pizza on top. Dusting will keep it from sticking and will help to form a beautiful bottom crust.
How do you know if you put too much flour in bread?
Too much flour and not enough water can cause crumbly bread – people often do this if the dough is too sticky and they add more flour rather than kneading through it.
