The donut dough being cut
Frying cake donuts

Chocolate powdered donuts

Chocolate on chocolate
I have made donuts before and decided that I wanted to try chocolate ones, well these were not what I expected. I couldn't even taste the chocolate in the plain donut so I figured I would dress them up for some pics. I am still on the search for a good chocolate donut recipe, so if anyone has one let me know.

Chocolate Doughnuts
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 beaten eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
2 ozs. unsweetened chocolate

Melt butter and chocolate, set aside. In a mixing bowl stir together 2 1/4 cups flour, the baking powder, and salt. In large mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer till thick. Combine milk and butter/chocolate mixture. Add flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to egg mixture, beating just till blended after each addition. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour. Cover dough; chill about 2 hours.

On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 in. thickness. Cut woith a floured 2 1/2 in. doughnut cutter. Reroll as necessary.

Fry two or three doughnuts at a time in deep hot fat(375 degrees) about 1 minute on each side, or until golden, turning once with a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.

These were just some apple pie wontons. I made the filling to use up some apples before they went bad. After making turnover i had some filling left and decided to use the wonton wrappers in the fridge. I handed them out to neighbors and needless to say they didn't last long.
