Also, next time I will halve the recipe. I had 4 hungry kids eating these and we didn’t come close to finishing them.
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1½ cups granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- vegetable oil (for frying, 6-8 cups)
- 6 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate (I used ¾ cup semi sweet chips)
- ½ cup whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 teaspoons corn syrup
- Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, buttermilk, and melted butter to blend.
- Stir into dry ingredients until well blended.
- Chill until cold, at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours.
- About ten minutes before you are ready to start cooking, make the Mocha glaze.
- Scrape dough onto a generously floured surface. With floured hands, pat dough out to about 1/2 inch thick.
- With a 3-inch doughnut cutter, cut out doughnuts. I just used a biscuit cutter.
- Pat together scraps of dough and cut again. Place doughnuts on a well-floured baking sheet.
- I used well floured fingers to get the hole in the middle, make sure the hole is large or when frying, it will close up.
- Heat oil in an electric deep-fryer or pour about 4 inches of oil, I had maybe 2 inches, into a 5- to 6-quart pan, I used a 2 quart; heat oil to 375°F. Place one doughnut at a time onto a wide spatula and gently slide into oil, frying up to three at a time. Cook, turning once, until puffy and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes total (to check timing, cut first one to test). With a slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Repeat to fry remaining doughnuts. Be careful not to over cook.
- When cool enough to handle, dip the top half of each doughnut in warm mocha glaze and place on a plate.
- Let stand until glaze is set, about 5 minutes.
- n a heatproof bowl, combine semisweet chocolate, 1/2 cup whipping cream, 1 tablespoon butter, 2 teaspoons and corn syrup.
- Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pan; remove from heat. Place bowl over water and let stand, stirring occasionally, until smooth, about 10 minutes.
