I started with a familiar recipe, and then I adjusted as needed. Although I didn't measure, this is the most accurate account I can give of how our successful batch came to be:
- Mix 1 1/2 cups flour (I used all-purpose), 1/2 cup salt, 1 1/2 T cream of tartar, and 3T unsweetened cocoa powder in a bowl.
- Add 1T vegetable oil and mix.
- Add 3/4 cups boiling water and mix. Dough will likely be sticky.
- Slowly, stir in more flour and knead until dough is no longer sticky. I ended up adding about another 1/2 cup.
