This seems so simple.. and, still I'm stumped. How is it that the "perfect" corn tortilla is supposed to have little bubbles rising up when they cook? Thr recipe is only corn masa and water...there's no baking soda whatsoever in the mix. I've made several batches, and while they taste pretty good, I think they seem a bit "raw", even after cooking for about a minute each side. And I never, ever, get bubbles.
What am I missing? The corn masa I'm using does contain lime... if that helps. I'm using a super-hot cast iron skillet that I've seasoned for HOURS.
Any help would be most appreciated.
