Air Fryer Donuts taste so good you won’t believe they started with canned biscuit dough and are ready in less than 10 minutes.
I love a hot and fresh donut. But the euphoria of eating one lasts for just a few seconds. Donuts are so light and airy. They keep me wanting more. That’s why I am a fan of Air Fryer Donuts. They are ready quickly. And one donut is really enough to satisfy a craving. Biscuit dough makes for a denser donut then ones you’d buy at a bakery. But I have never had any complaints.
Are Air Fryer Donuts Good?
It’s funny because when writing my recipes, I check to see what people are asking Google about that particular recipe. In the case of these donuts, lots of people are asking if they are good or not. I promise you they are indeed good and worth making. Several things make these donuts really good. Making sure to not over fry them is the first. Using plenty of butter to make the sugar coating stick is the second. And using a combination of both powdered and granulated sugar for the coating is the third.

Air Fryer Donuts
- Air Fryer
- 6 canned biscuits I use Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle
- 6 tbsp salted butter melted
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Cut a hole in the center of each biscuit using a piping tip meant for a frosting bag.
- Place the donuts in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
- Air fry the donuts at 350 degrees F for 6 - 7 minutes, or until they are puffed and cooked through.
- Meanwhile, heat the butter in a microwave safe shallow bowl until melted.
- Put the sugars and cinnamon into a gallon-sized zippered bag, seal and shake until well blended.
- Dip each donut into the melted butter, making sure all sides are coated.
- After dipping each donut into the melted butter, place the donuts in the bag with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
- Close the bag and shake, making sure the donuts are evenly covered with the sugar mixture. Serve immediately.
