Self-rising cornmeal mix is found along with the flours in the supermarket. Don't substitute plain cornmeal for it, 'cause it won't work the same way.

Thanks so much for the correction. I will definitely try it again!

Thank you bec4 for bringing this to our attention. We went back and checked the original recipe and the correct amount of cornmeal mix is 1-1/3 cups. We apologize for this error and thank you again for letting us know. Mr. Food Customer Service

I have no idea what went wrong here. It was clear from the time I mixed the batter that something was wrong. I checked and re-checked my measurements and I did everything right -- even using the self-rising cornmeal. It seemed like there was too much corn meal for the proportions of the other ingredients. It did not work out for me at all which was a disappointment.
