In a bowl, combine yeast and hot water. Let the yeast dissolve in the water. Add salt, margarine, milk, sugar, eggs, and 2 cups of flour. Mix slowly and thoroughly for 30 seconds. Because later you will need to further process the mixture.
The mixture was then stirred at medium speed for 2 minutes. Continue to scrape. Add the remaining flour and whisk the mixture until smooth. Cover and let the batter rise for 50 to 60 minutes. It is best to keep the batter in a warm place. The dough is ready when it dents instead of springing back when you press it with your fingers.
Spread the batter on the chopping board. Now dust the board with flour and spread the dough out on the board. Knead lightly to coat the dough with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a 1.3 cm pie shape (sprinkle the rolling pin with flour so it doesn't stick). Use a doughnut cutter to cut out the hollow doughnuts.
Cover the small circles you cut out and let the dough rise for another 30 to 40 minutes. Pour vegetable oil into a deep fryer and heat to 180 degrees. Using a wide spatula, slide the doughnut dough into the pan along the edges of the fryer. Fry for 1 minute on each side until golden brown. Carefully remove the fried doughnuts from the pan and drain.
Put the doughnuts in the buttercream icing, then remove and let cool before slathering on a layer of chocolate. Delicious donuts are ready!
