Combine flour, cornmeal, chives, baking powder, salt, and red pepper in a large bowl. Mix.
Combine buttermilk and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Add egg mixture, corn and crab meat to the flour mixture, stirring gently.
Heat a large skillet with 2 TBS oil. Heat till oil is hot and shimmery. Drop 4, 1/4 cup cup batter mounds in the pan. Cook on one side for 4 minutes until golden brown, turn and cook for 2 minutes longer. Repeat adding 2 TBS oil to pan until all the batter is used. Keep in a warm oven.
