    1       c            Buttermilk
    3 1/2   c            All-Purpose Flour

    1       c            Powdered Sugar
    1                    Egg White
      1/2   ts           Vanilla
 
   All the ingredients should be at room temperature
   (70oF.) Beat the sugar and eggs together until creamy
   and lemon colored. Melt the butter and chocolate
   together in a small saucepan over low heat. Beat into
   the sugar and egg mixture. Combine the vanilla and the
   buttermilk. Stir into the sugar mixture. Combine the
   flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large
   bowl. Stir into the liquid mixture. Chill the dough
   slightly to make it easier to handle. Roll out half
   the dough on a lightly floured board. Roll to a /"
   thickness. Cut into doughnuts. Allow the cut doughnuts
   to dry for 10 minutes. Heat 2 of oil to 370o in a
   large skillet. The dough should be at room temperature
   before frying. Dip a metal pancake turner into the hot
   oil each time before using it to move or turn a
   doughnut. Transfer the doughnuts to the skillet, one
   every 15 seconds. Fry each doughnut about 90 seconds
   per side. Remove the doughnuts and drain on paper
   towelling.
