Pour melted butter from skillet into cornmeal mixture, and quickly stir to incorporate. Pour mixture into hot skillet, and immediately place in oven.

Great taste but came out thin

October 07, 2016
I followed this recipe exactly but it did not come out thick like in the photo, it was thin.  It tasted great.   I used Lamb's stone ground yellow cornmeal "original course grind" and don't know if that was the problem.  Anyone else have this problem?
