 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Cups          Granulated Sugar
    1      Tsp           Baking Soda
    2                    Eggs
      1/2  Tsp           Salt
    4      Tbls          Butter
    3      Oz            Unsweetened Chocolate
    1 1/2  Tsp           Vanilla
    1      Cup           Buttermilk
    3 1/2  Cups          All-Purpose Flour
    3      Tsp           Baking Powder
                         ICING:
    1      Cup           Powdered Sugar
    1                    Egg White
      1/2  Tsp           Vanilla
 
 All the ingredients should be at room temperature (70 degrees F.) 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  1/2 thickness. Cut into doughnuts. Allow the cut doughnuts to dry for
 10 minutes. Heat 2 of oil to 370 degrees 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 toweling.
 Repeat with the remaining batter. Prepare the icing by beating the sugar,
 egg white and vanilla together until smooth. Drizzle onto the doughnuts
 after they have cooled. Yields 30 Doughnuts From: Joel.Ehrlich@salata.com
