Air Fryer Biscuit Doughnuts Recipe

A simple recipe for Air Fryer Biscuit Doughnuts (and doughnut holes!) with DIY chocolate glaze turns canned biscuit dough into a brunch favourite.  


FOR THE DOUGHNUTS: – Cooking Spray – 1 (16.3-oz.) can refrigerated biscuit FOR THE CINNAMON-SUGAR TOPPING:  – 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted – 3 Tablespoons sugar – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon FOR THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE:  – 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar – 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 1/2 Tablespoons whole milk – Sprinkles (optional)

MAKE THE DOUGHNUTS :-  Make doughnuts by preheating the air fryer to 360°F. Separate the biscuits on your work surface. Eight rounds are needed. Cut each biscuit into eight doughnuts and eight doughnut holes with a 1-inch round cookie cutter.   

Step 1


Grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray and add doughnuts and holes. Doughnuts should be air-fried for 4–5 minutes till golden brown. Repeat air-frying the remaining doughnuts after rack-cooling.  

Step 2

MAKE THE CINNAMON-SUGAR TOPPING:- Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Coat doughnuts with melted butter, dredge in cinnamon-sugar, and shake off excess. Serve.  

Step 3

MAKE THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE:-Sift cocoa powder and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Mix the milk until smooth, adding 1 teaspoon at a time to thin to your preferred consistency.   

Step 4

Once chilled, dip doughnuts in glaze and sprinkle with optional toppings. Return the doughnuts to the rack for 5 minutes to set the glaze, then serve.
