Baked Doughnuts

Somethings have to just wait for the right time just like my doughnut pan which I had bought almost 2 years back and since then had been patiently waiting in my archives to be used someday!!! I really regret for keeping it waiting for so long. But as they say, better late than never!! Der aaye Durust aaye!! I am loving it. Another successfully acquired baking gadget!! Yippee!! 
1 cup flour 
3/4 tsp baking powder 
1/4 baking soda 
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup brown sugar 
2 tbsp butter melted
1 large egg
1 tsp Vanila essence 
1/2 cup buttermilk 

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a bowl and keep aside. 
Whip the egg, buttermilk, vanilla essence, and cooled and melted butter. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix well. Ensure there are no lumps while taking care at the same time that no lumps remain. 
I am using my doughnut maker but you can use a regular baking tray and keep a small piping nozzle in between to make the hole and keep it there while baking. Make sure however that you use the aluminium ones instead of the plastic ones or anything which helps you to keep the doughnuts in shape. If using the oven , pre-heat to 190 degree celcius and bake in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. 
If using the doughnut  maker, pre-heat  it before using and then pour 1 -2 tsp of the batter into the holes and close the lid. Bake till golden on one sude and then flip and bake for 2-3 minutes more. 

Let them cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare the ganache. I used unused regular chocolates lying in the fridge and melted them. Added cream to a consistency I desired and added 1 tsp honey to make it glossy. Once cooled, dip the doughnuts top side down into the 
Chocolate ganache and let it set for 30 minutes before serving.
