  2. 2. Sift cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cayenne through a fine meshed sieve into a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk, egg, and scallions, until a batter is formed. Do not over mix.
  3. 3. Pour 2 inches of frying oil into a large heavy-bottomed pot. Heat oil to 375F. over medium heat. Working in small batches, drop batter from an oiled tablespoon into hot oil.
