1/2cupdark brown sugar
1egg + 1 egg yolk
1/4cupdark unsweetened cocoa powdersifted
1/2cupheavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cocoa and espresso. Whisk together to combine.
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine egg, egg yolk and buttermilk. Whisk to combine. Add oil and vanilla. Whisk again to combine.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.
Fill a zip lock bag with the filling and clip the corner of the bag. Squeeze batter into donut pan until 3/4 full.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Don't over bake.
Let cool 5 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.
Put cream in a glass measuring cup and microwave until hot in 30 second intervals. Pour over chocolate and stir until smooth. I put my chocolate in a small food processor, poured hot cream over the chocolate, and pulsed until smooth.
When cooled, dip into ganache. Sprinkle with desired toppings.
