What happened to my batter?

calpurnia | Jan 1, 2013 02:35 PM

This morning I attempted to make corn fritters using a recipe I've successfully used many times before (as recently as Christmas morning) but this time the batter was very runny. I dumped it and started over only to have the same thing happen again.

The recipe is as follows:

Combine and heat just until the butter has melted:
1 cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Black pepper to taste
8 tablespoons butter

Add all at once & whisk:
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal

Stir in 1 cup corn kernels

Using a wooden spoon, add 3 eggs, one at a time. Mixture will be thick.

I used the same flour, eggs, brand of butter, method of measuring as the other times...I am stumped.
