Breakfast has never been easier with these irresistible, cinnamon sugar dusted donuts – made in the handy dandy air fryer. Mmm mmm good!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 6 minutes per batch

Servings: Makes 8 donuts and 8 donut holes


  • 16.3 ounce can large refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Preheat air fryer to 350°F. 

Remove biscuits from can and separate onto flat work surface. Using a small round cookie cutter, cut center out of each biscuit.

Spray inside of air fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches, place donuts in air fryer in a single layer. Generously spray with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip donuts, spray with cooking spray and continue cooking for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from air fryer and transfer to baking sheet. Repeat previous steps with doughnut holes, cooking 90 seconds per side. Let donuts cool slightly.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Brush all sides of warm donuts with butter and toss in cinnamon sugar mixture until fully coated.


ORANGE & FIELD TIP: To make tossing the donuts in cinnamon sugar easier, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a resealable container. Place your butter-covered donut in the container, put the lid on and lightly shake to coat it.
