How to make it
- Begin by heating milk to about 90 degrees.
- Remove from heat and stir in yeast with a fork.
- Let mixture sit until it gets creamy and foamy, about 5 minutes.
- Mix in one egg and one egg yolk with a fork.
- Add one cup of flour and mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms.
- Pour 3/4 cup flour over the top of mixture (don't mix it in), cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place for 1 hour or until it has doubled in volume.
- Make dough with a bowl in a stand mixer.
- Combine the starter ingredients, along with 5 eggs, sugar, 4 cups flour, and honey.
- Fit mixer with dough hook.
- Mix on low speed.
- Add salt.
- Mix until dough comes together, pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball.
- Add softened butter one tablespoon at a time.
- When all butter is added, you should have soft, smooth, shiny dough.
- Place it in greased bowl, cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight.
- In morning, let the dough sit in warm place for 3 hours.
- It should come to room temperature and have risen slightly.
- On lightly floured surface, roll out dough approximately a half-inch thick.
- Cut doughnuts with a cookie cutter.
- Cut hole in middle of each doughnut using a smaller cookie cutter and set aside to rise in a warm, draft-free space until they've risen and are slightly puffy (about 30 minutes).
- While doughnuts are rising, make ganache.
- Roughly chop chocolate and place in medium mixing bowl.
- Set aside.
- In small sauce pan, bring heavy cream to boil.
- Pour over the chopped chocolate, coating entirely.
- Let sit one minute, then whisk cream and chocolate together to form a smooth, shiny ganache.
- Attach a deep-fry thermometer to heavy pot and heat about 3 inches of canola frying oil to 350F degrees.
- Fry doughnuts 2 or 3 at a time, about one minute per side until golden brown.
- Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and toss in granulated sugar to coat while still warm.
- Serve warm with small bowl of chocolate ganache for dipping.
