  1. Mix first eight ingredients. When well mixed, add 1 beaten egg, then slowly add milk or buttermilk until the mixture is a thick mush.
  2. Deep fry in hot fat heated to 360 degrees F. Drop a heaping tablespoon full of the batter at a time into the fat and fry until golden brown. Cook only a few at a time and let oil get hot again between batches.
  3. Serve very hot with lots of butter.

You can also add finely chopped bell pepper to this.

* Scallions are good to use because the green color looks nice.
