Lately, my Hubby and I have been craving sweet pastries with our coffee during the weekends. Donuts come to mind right away! But I don’t want to run to the store or make them from scratch. A can of biscuit dough to the rescue! I’ve used it before to make pull-apart rolls or skillet rolls and they are always a hit. I knew this idea would work great too!

These Air Fryer Donuts are incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious! I went with cinnamon sugar coating but you can make a simple glaze. Either way, these are perfect with a cup of joe or your afternoon latte!

Ingredients:

  • canned biscuits, like Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers
  • unsalted butter
  • granulated sugar
  • cinnamon

Can I make donut holes in the air fryer?

Absolutely. The holes you cut with frosting tip can be baked as well. Place them on air fryer rack and bake for 2 to 3 minutes OR until golden and light brown. Dip in butter and cinnamon sugar and serve.

Can I make them ahead of time?

Just like with regular donuts, these taste the best while freshly baked. I like to serve them while they are still warm and crispy. However, even if you let them sit they will be delicious.

Can I make glazed air fryer donuts?

If you want to glaze the donuts, check out my recipe for Peanut Butter Glazed Donuts or make a simple powdered sugar glaze from my Glazed Cranberry Muffins recipe.
