Yield: Serves 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 19 minutes
Total Time: 34 minutes

For Donuts
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
¼ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup milk
1 large egg

For Spicy Chocolate Ganache
⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
⅓ cup heavy cream
½ teaspoon Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 6-cavity donut pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, then set aside.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract.
  3. Add milk and egg and whisk until just combined. Gradually whisk in flour mixture until batter is smooth.
  4. Spoon batter into a large resealable bag and cut one corner. Pipe batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each cavity ¾ full. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Cool donuts in pan for 20 minutes.
  5. While donuts cool, heat chocolate chips, cream and sriracha in a medium bowl over a pot with some simmering water to create a double boiler. Stir until mixture is smooth and glossy, about 6-7 minutes. Dip cooled donuts in chocolate ganache. Place on a wire cooling rack until chocolate is firm.
