Perhaps your baking powder is inactive? Try mixing some with water and see if it foams. Step 3 appears to have to mix everything at once. In step 4, how much mixing did you do? You need to mix enough to help develop some structure to support the rising caused by the air bubbles created by the baking powder. But you don't want to overdo it and create too much gluten.
