Mine sink too when removed from the heat of the oven but still taste yummy. Maybe we use the wrong flour? Is there a right flour?

yes  always always PLAIN FLOUR.....dont ask why  .

they shouldnt drop straight away  and should have a crunch outside..or crispy..not soft... might have to force myself to make more till I get it right.. Smiley

There is a difference in European and Australian wheat, ours is “strong” whatever that means (more gluten?) Why not try 000 flour from Italy?

The scientist running the lab for a flour miller was a friend of the family, she did talk a bit about flour and I am sure I remember her saying our flour was too strong. This was 1960s and I was still in high school so details a bit vague.

But try it, can always make pasta with the flour if it doesn’t work for the yorkies.

You could also try adding either corn flour or rye flour to your plain flour to reduce gluten content

Rye has gluten but a different form than the gluten in wheat.
