Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands! Flakey Biscuit Dough
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted butter Melted
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 170 g Granulated Sugar

Instructions

Preparation

  • Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and put aside.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Remove the biscuits from the can and separate them. Place them on the baking sheet.
  • Using a 1-inch round biscuit cutter or something similar like a bottle cap, cut out the center holes for each biscuit.
  • Lightly spray some olive oil on the air fryer basket ensuring it's coated well (Don't use PAM as it can ruin the non stick coating).
  • Preheat the air fryer to 175 ° C or 350 ° F which usually takes around 3 minutes depending on the air fryer.

Cooking

  • Place 3-4 doughnuts in the basket ensuring they aren't overlapping or touching, and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  • Flip the doughnuts and cook for another 5-6 minutes until they are golden brown.
  • Brush both sides of the warm doughnuts with melted butter and place them in the sugar and cinnamon mixture coating both sides well.

Notes

  • You may need to do several batches due to the number of doughnuts and the size of the basket.
  • Ensure you lightly spray the oil on the basket to ensure they don't stick.
  • You can also cook the doughnut holes which should only take 2-3 minutes instead of 5-6 minutes.
  • To those not in the USA, they are also called Donuts.
  • Nutritional Information is based on 1 biscuit and doesn't include the topping such as sugar, cinnamon, or chocolate. Recipe Source: https://www.thekitchn.com/air-fryer-donuts-264464
