1 cup corn meal
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
2 teaspoons corn oil
In a mixing bowl, combine corn meal, baking powder and salt. Boil water. Mix boiling water and oil into corn meal. When mixture cools enough to handle, divide into eight equal balls. Flatten slightly. Place flattened ball on top of an 8-inch square of waxed paper. Cover with a second square. Roll into a 6-inch circle. Remove from waxed paper and cook on an ungreased griddle until lightly browned. Repeat until all eight balls have been prepared.
