If you crave doughnuts without shame, thanks to the air fryer rings offer the same sweet, tender, and crackly glazed sugar goodness. Homemade Donuts made from the Air Fryer is crispy on the outside and have a moist, fluffy inside. You can choose either to dipped in a glaze of buttery donuts or in sweet cinnamon-sugar they make a perfect breakfast or treat, and taste like from your favorite Donut spot. I guarantee it’s much simpler than you would think, and the result is worth it.


(1 1/4) cups all-purpose flour, add more for working surface
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp table salt
4 tbsp cold salted butter, cut it into small pieces
1/3 cup whole milk
Cooking spray
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp water


1. Add and whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter; cut into flour using 2 knives or a pastry cutter until butter is well combined and looks like coarse cornmeal. Add and stir the milk until dough forms a ball. Place dough on a floured surface, and knead until the dough is smooth and forms a cohesive ball, about 30 seconds. Cut dough into 14 equal balls. Roll each gently to form evenly smooth balls. Cook at 350°F until browned and puffed, about 10 minutes.

2. Coat thoroughly with cooking spray at the bottom of the air fryer dish. In the basket of the air fryer, add and place 7 dough balls spacing evenly to avoid touching. Spray dough balls with cooking spray. Remove gently from basket, and place on a wire rack.

3. Whisk together powdered sugar and water in a medium bowl until smooth. Place cooked dough balls, one at a time, in glaze; roll to coat. Put on a wire rack or baking sheet lined with parchment paper to dry.

4. Repeat the procedure with remaining dough and glaze.
