In the shop we make a doughnut muffin, which is tops.  I was feeling inspired by this muffin at home and decided to break out my trusty bundt pan to make a doughnut cake!  Because let's be real: who doesn't love things that look and taste like doughnuts?  No one, that's correct.

for the cake
4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups whole milk
4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
4 tsp vanilla

for the ganache

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients.  Mix together until completely but just combined.

Spray your bundt pan heavily with baking spray and fill the pan 3/4 full.  you'll have a little bit leftover - make some doughnuts!

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Heat up your heavy cream in a glass bowl in the microwave until very hot.  Pour it over your chocolate chips and let it sit for one minute.  Use a whisk to mix until smooth and shiny.  Pour it over your cake, once it is cooled then throw some festive sprinkles on top!
