I am not giving this any stars because I change the recipe substantially. After mixing everything up, the batter seemed way too thin, so I looked up another version of this I have made and it called for equal amounts of flour and cornmeal. This one has no flour listed, but I added a cup. The result was a nice textured cornbread with a nice crisp crust and good flavor, but don't know if it is what the chef intended. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
