- Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and the salt.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, buttermilk, and melted butter.
- Add to the flour mixture and stir to blend.
- Chill for at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.
- Meanwhile in a medium bowl, whisk together the icing sugar, buttermilk and the vanilla extract to make a pourable glaze.
- Line one tray with parchment paper and one with paper towels. Set aside.
- Scrape the chilled dough onto a generously floured cutting board.

- Roll into balls and place them on the parchment lined baking sheet.
- Meanwhile heat up 2 inches of oil in a smaller dutch pot on medium high heat.

- Fry the remaining donut holes.
- Dip them into the prepared glaze.
- Let the glaze set for ten minutes before sampling.

A year later we are still buying timbits, but since one never knows how long we can, I made these donut holes and they actually taste better than Tim’s.
