5-Minute Air Fryer Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts Recipe Will Rock Your World

This easy air fryer donut recipe is addictive. No joke. It took everything in me not to eat them all myself. Sharing? What's that? 

You should share these melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts, but eat them hot and don't hold back. Get ready for this to become a most-requested recipe.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 can jumbo refrigerated biscuits (8 count)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Here's how to make them:

1. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F. (I used the Emeril 360 Deluxe Air Fryer Oven.) Melt the butter in a small bowl. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in another small bowl. Set aside.

2. Separate the biscuits. Cut the center out of each biscuit using a donut cutter (I used the cap off of the cinnamon bottle). Spray the air fryer tray or basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place the doughnuts and doughnut holes onto the tray or in the basket (as many as you can fit at one time).

3. Cook the donuts for 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

4. Dip the hot doughnuts into the butter and then into the cinnamon sugar. Eat!
