How to Use an Air Fryer to Make Fluffy and Delicious Donuts

Donuts made in an air fryer are a better option than fried donuts, but they still taste great and have a fluffy texture. This recipe will show you how to use your air fryer to make donuts that are light, fluffy, and taste great.

Chapter 1: What You Need to Make the Donuts:

  1. 2 1 and a half teaspoons dry yeast that works
  2. 1/2 cup of warm milk (around 110°F)
  3. 1/4 cup of sugar, broken up
  4. 1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter
  5. 1 big egg
  6. Two and a half cups of wheat flour
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt Oil mister or cooking spray

For the Glaze:

  1. 1 cup of sugar powder
  2. 2 to 3 tablespoons of water or milk
  3. Half a teaspoon of vanilla extract
  4. Sprinkles or food coloring (extra, for looks)

Chapter 2: Getting Ready

  • Get the yeast going: Mix the yeast and a little sugar with warm milk in a small bowl. Wait 5 to 10 minutes until it foams up.
  • The dough needs to be mixed. Put the activated yeast mixture, sugar, melted butter, egg, flour, and salt in a big bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  • Slow down the mixer and keep mixing until the dough comes together. If you have a stand mixer, knead the dough for 5 to 7 minutes on medium speed. To knead by hand, work the dough on a lightly floured surface for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and pliable.
  • First Rise: Grease a bowl and put the dough in it. Turn the dough over once to coat it with oil.
  • Use a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap to cover the bowl.
  • It will double in size after about an hour of rising in a warm place that doesn’t get drafty.

Chapter 3: Cutting and Fry in the Air

  • Get the air fryer ready by: For about 5 minutes, heat your air fryer up to 350°F (175°C).

How to Shape the Donuts:

  • After the dough has risen, punch it down and place it on a lightly floured surface.
  • The dough should be rolled out to about 1/2 inch thick.
    To make donuts and donut holes out of the dough, use a donut shape or two round cookie cutters of different sizes. Roll out any leftover dough again, and keep going until all the dough is gone.
  • Fry the donuts in the air: Spray or brush the air fryer basket with a little cooking spray or oil.
  • Put the donuts and donut holes in the air fryer basket so that they are all in one layer. Leave some room between them.
  • Spray cooking spray or oil on top of the donuts just a little.
    To cook, put the donuts in an air fryer set to 350°F (175°C) and flip them over once or twice during the five to six minutes, until they are golden brown and fully cooked.

Chapter 4: Making Panes

  • Get the glaze ready: Mix powdered sugar, milk or water, and vanilla extract in a small bowl with a whisk until the mixture is smooth. If you need to, add more milk or powdered sugar to change the consistency.
  • Pour the glaze over the donuts. Coat both sides of each warm donut evenly with the glaze. Let any extra glaze fall to the ground.
  • Decorate: You can add food coloring, sprinkles, or other toppings to the glazed donuts while the sauce is still wet if you want to.

Chapter 5: How to Serve and Do Well

  • Serve Warm: Serve the donuts straight away, while they are still warm and the sauce is still fresh.

How to Make Fluffy Donuts:

  • Make sure the yeast is properly active and that the dough rises in a warm place.
  • Do not pack the air fryer basket too full; this will allow air to flow around the donuts properly.
  • Depending on the type and size of your air fryer, you may need to change the cooking time.

Various forms: Try different glazes, like chocolate, maple, or lemon, or put jelly or cream inside the donuts to make them more interesting.

In conclusion
These donuts made in an air fryer are a great treat for breakfast, lunch, or any time you want something sweet. You can make donuts in your air fryer that are perfectly cooked, with a crispy outside and a soft, fluffy inside. You can also control the ingredients and make them healthier than regular fried donuts. Enjoy these tasty homemade treats with your family and friends.
