Chocolate Peanut Butter Doughnuts with Sriracha Glaze

In our house we're a big fan of chilli sauces, our cupboards are heaving with dozens upon dozens of bottles.  Only one brand makes it out of the cupboard and into the counter top collection, you guessed it, sriracha.  We're obsessed, a little too obsessed, we even have the hoisin sauce variety.

It was only a matter of time before I found away to incorporate sriracha into my baking.  After contemplating a few different ideas I finally settled on doughnuts.  I mean, what doesn't go well in a doughnut?!

What can I say about these babies, these little doughnuts don't half pack a punch.  We all know peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven, but once you add a spicy element into the mix then you're really onto something special.  I know they might sound a little out there but once you try them you'll never look back!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Doughnuts with Sriracha Glaze
Makes 24 mini doughnuts

150g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1/2tsp baking powder
100g light brown sugar
120ml buttermilk
1 large free range egg
50g butter, melted

Peanut butter glaze:
125g chocolate flavoured peanut butter
175g icing sugar
4tbsp whole milk

Sriracha drizzle:
4tbsp sriracha hot sauce
100g icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 170C and grease the hollows in two mini doughnut pans (spray release is awesome for this).  Set aside.

In a large bowl mix together the dry doughnut ingredients, in another bowl stir together the wet ingredients.  Pour the wet over the dry and fold together until combined, making sure there's no lumps of flour.  Fill each hollow until around 2/3 full, I like to do this with a disposable piping bag filled with the batter.  Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes until springy to the tough.  Allow to cool for five minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.  

Once the doughnuts are cooled make the glaze.  In a bowl above a pan of simmering water melt the peanut butter together with the icing sugar.  Stir through the milk one tablespoon at a time until you reach a good dipping consistency.  

For the sriracha drizzle stir the hot sauce and the icing sugar together, if it's a little too thick add a teaspoon of milk.  

Dip each doughnut in the peanut butter glaze and place on a cooling rack till the excess drips off.  Fill a disposable piping bag with the sriracha drizzle and pipe it over the glazed doughnuts.  Let the glazes set for ten minutes and enjoy.
