4. Bake for 8 minutes or until the doughnuts are golden and cooked through.
5. Leave the doughnuts to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing.
6. Heat the cream in a small saucepan, make sure it does not boil. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips, whisking until all the chocolate has melted and the ganache is smooth.

Dip each doughnut into the ganache and enjoy.
