Wake up – It’s time to make air fryer donuts!
What if I said that you can make warm and delicious homemade donuts, as a genius breakfast idea, in just five minutes using your air fryer?! Yep, they are that quick to make and are definitely worth getting out of bed for.
This is one of my favorite air fryer recipe ideas, and I hope your family loves it, too! It results in a yummy batch of flaky, warm donuts that taste delicious, yet are so low effort.

Tips for making yummy air fryer donuts:
- We usually top ours with butter and then powdered sugar or a cinnamon/sugar mixture. You could also create a sweet glaze by mixing 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of milk and a splash of vanilla extract. Dip the tops in the glaze after air frying and let dry for a bit before enjoying! So good.
