Chocolate Ganache Doughnuts

Chocolate Ganache Doughnuts
My doughnut pan gets used a lot. I rationalize it because I am baking instead of frying doughnuts.  But that all goes out the window when you dipped the baked doughnuts in a rich chocolate ganache.  Miss F was in charge of the chocolate dipping and I think she did an amazing job.  She did lick the ganache coated spoon and declared that these doughnuts didn't even need sprinkles.  She loves to put sprinkles on everything, so that is saying a lot.  Feel free to add sprinkles or any other candy topper, but these doughnuts are standouts on their own.  Miss F had two.
Chocolate Ganache Doughnuts

1 cup flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg
½ cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup chocolate chips
3 tablespoons cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the doughnut pan with cooking spray.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. In a two cup measure, whisk together the butter, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stir until just incorporated.

Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let the doughnuts cool on a wire rack.

In a shallow bowl, add the chocolate chips and cream. Microwave for 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir until all the chips are melted and the ganache is smooth. Dip the doughnuts into the ganache and let set.
