We made these last night at a 1700's recreation dinner. Its kind of like a crape made with cornmeal. The recipe was from the 1st cookbook published in America.

    Everytime I try to bake it in the oven I end up with a two-layer cake... It seems that the corn meal doesn't mix with the other ingredients quite well... What am I doing wrong?!
