    1 1/2  tsp           Vanilla
    1                    Egg White

    3 1/2  Cups          All-Purpose Flour
    3      tsp           Baking Powder
  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.
