Special equipment: Deep-frying thermometer
Mix together the cornmeal, buttermilk, salt, sugar, soda and egg to make a thick consistency. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Heat some oil in a large pot until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil registers 375 degrees F. Drop spoonfuls of batter in the hot oil and cook until light golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
