Preparation

  1. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, buttermilk, butter and eggs until thoroughly combined. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture just until smooth dough forms.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, pat dough flat and lightly flour. Roll out dough to a 1/3-inch thickness. Cut into rounds with a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Reroll and cut scraps.
  3. Place a caramel in the center of each round, pinch dough closed around it and gently roll into a smooth ball.
  4. Line baking sheet with paper towels. Fill wide, shallow bowl with 1 inch of sugar. In a large, heavy pot, heat 4 inches of oil until it registers 350 on a candy thermometer. In batches of 4, fry doughnuts for 5 minutes, turning once with a slotted spoon and adjusting heat as needed. Transfer doughnuts to prepared sheet; let rest for 4 minutes. Roll in sugar to coat. Serve immediately.
