Air fryer donuts!  Sounds crazy right??  BUT, I have to tell you, they are AMAZING and EASY and FAST and YUMMY!!!

When Laurie asked if anyone wanted to try out an air fryer, I'd already been looking into them but wasn't sure I wanted another appliance in the house. Let me tell you how HAPPY I am that I bought one!  It's SO convenient, super easy to use and FAST!  Everything tastes great and cooks in minimal time. (Check out a killer deal on an air fryer at Kohl's right now!)

 

 

Let's get back to the donuts!!  I'd heard of donuts in the air fryer and just HAD to try them.  The first time I made them for my daughter and her friend the girls RAVED about them.  Her friend even went home and told her mom she didn't want donuts any other way!

 

 

SOooooo simple!!  I used one small can of Grands Biscuits (you could use any cheap biscuits you have on hand).  Put a hole in the middle – I had this small heart shaped cookie cutter but you can literally use ANYTHING (the donut holes might be my very favorite part).

 

 

Once you have the hole in the middle – you pop them into the air fryer (I was able to fit 4).  I set my air fryer to 350 degrees and set the timer for 6 minuets – no pre-heating necessary!!

 

 

Half way through flip your donuts, so they brown up on both sides.  Once they come out, you put on whatever toppings you'd like, I tried 4 different toppings:

  • Glazed w/Sprinkles
  • Chocolate Glazed
  • Powdered Sugared
  • Cinnamon Sugared

 

 

Seriously, look at these donuts SO easy and best of all they taste AMAZING!!!  Such a great alternative to store bought donuts (and so affordable).

TOPPINGS

Cinnamon and Sugar Topping (my favorite!!)

  1. What kind of air fryer do you use?

  2. On the glaze shouldn’t be more milk than just a 2/3 tablespoon? How do you get it to mix right
