Since I'm new to this, I made it according to the recipe EXCEPT I was out of white flour, so I used whole wheat pastry flour. They were fine. Better than most - way better than a mix. The second time I made them, I made them with white flour AND after tasting the batter and finding it good, but a little on the bland side, I looked around for ingredients to add that could help perk up the flavor. I wish I had seen the cayenne pepper recommendation! Instead, I went with a couple of spoons of cognac. Man! It was really good! You couldn't taste it, but it just added that layer of complexity it needed to move it from pretty darn good to great.
