Chocolate Donut is a light dessert, made irresistible by the Mocha glaze that adds a shiny texture to it. Baked, not fried, they are easy to make and even easier to enjoy.

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 4 large eggs 
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar 
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk 
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted 
  • 6 to 8 cups vegetable oil for frying 
  • Mocha glaze (recipe follows) 
  • In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. 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.
  • 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. Pat together scraps of dough and cut again. (Alternately, shape dough into ropes about 5 inches long and 1/2 inch thick; join rope ends to form doughnuts.) Place doughnuts on a well-floured baking sheet.
  • Meanwhile, fill an electric deep-fryer to the fill line or pour about 4 inches of oil into a 5- to 6-quart pan; heat to 375° (see "Fry Right," below). 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.
  • 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.
  • Mocha glaze. In a heatproof bowl, combine 6 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate, 1/2 cup whipping cream, 1 tablespoon butter, 2 teaspoons corn syrup, and 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder. 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.
