How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly coat the donut pan with non stick spray. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack over the parchment. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and baking soda. Stir in the salt. Add the buttermilk and stir to combine, then add the butter. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla and add them to the flour mixture. Stir, just until the mixture is combined. Stir in the chopped chocolate if using.
  • Fill each donut mold about 2/3 full. Bake for about 8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the donuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto the wire rack.
  • To make the ganache:
  • Heat some water in a small saucepan until it is simmering. Add the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of the cream to a bowl, and place over the saucepan, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the liquid. Stir until the chips have melted and are combined with the cream. If the mixture seems too thick, add the rest of the cream.
  • Dip each donut in the ganache. Top with whichever toppings you desire.Let the chocolate set before you dig in.

    " It was excellent "

    These are some good donuts :) I messed up the ganache a little by using whole milk and it didn't get very creamy and silky, but still tasted pretty darn good and the kids really loved them. One thing, if you see this, the baking "soda" in the "how to make it" needs to say baking "powder". Thanks for the great recipe!
