How to make air fryer donuts. These are so easy to make for breakfast or for dessert. They take just a few minutes to prep and bake for 4-6 minutes.

I made mine cinnamon sugar doughnuts, but you can also make them with a glaze or a chocolate icing. I have directions for both in my how to make air fryer donuts from canned biscuits post.

These are very quick and easy to make. They are semi homemade, but they taste just they were made from scratch. They bake up soft and fluffy in the air fryer, just like fried doughnuts.

This makes a small batch of 8, but you can make a few batches at a time. They freeze well if you freeze them without any topping. I use reusable freezer bags for baked goods so I can reuse the bag over and over and it doesn't get messy.
