Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a large shallow baking dish. Combine the water and milk and heat to simmer. Add the cornmeal, salt, sugar and butter, and stir over medium heat until the mixture is thickened, about five minutes. Remove from the heat.

Beat the eggs with the baking powder until they are very light and fluffy, then add them to the cornmeal mixture. Mix well. Pour into the prepared dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.
