    1 1/2  Cups          Granulated Sugar
    2                    Eggs
    4      Tablespoons   Butter
    3      Ounces        Unsweetened Chocolate
    1 1/2  Teaspoons     Vanilla
    1      Cup           Buttermilk
    3 1/2  Cups          All-Purpose Flour
    3      Teaspoons     Baking Powder
    1      Teaspoon      Baking Soda
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
                         ----------ICING-----------
    1      Cup           Powdered Sugar
    1                    Egg White
      1/2  Teaspoon      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.
