HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER DONUT HOLES
I can sit here all day and talk about how simple this recipe is but I’m going to let the photos show you the proof of that below!
Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut the donut holes from the biscuit dough with a mini pastry cutter. You can also you the lid from a drink bottle.
Line the basket with parchment paper or prepare with a non stick oil spray.
Place the dough balls in a single layer into the Air Fryer basket and bake on 350 for about 4 minutes, shaking the basket about halfway through.
Add the sugar mixture to a shallow bowl for dipping.
Remove the doughnut holes from the air fryer when they are golden brown and dip the donuts in cinnamon sugar mix before serving.
AIR FRYER DONUT FAQS
How do you reheat donut holes?
You can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat them but I do have to be honest with you. These donut holes are best eaten fresh, so don’t leave any leftovers for later!
Can you add other fun toppings to these donut holes?
Yes! Not only can you use cinnamon sugar, but you can also use powdered sugar, chocolate glaze, sprinkles, and more. Sprinkle on some powdered sugar or make a light glaze to drizzle over the top. The point is to use your Air Fryer to cook them up and then you can add whatever type of sweetness that you want to them.
