Deep-frying doughnuts adds a lot of unnecessary oil and fat. Air-frying doughnut holes, however, cuts the amount of oil you use but still delivers a delicious crispy crust. Serve these no-yeast doughnut holes warm for the best texture and flavor. Source:, January 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Using 2 forks or a pastry cutter, cut in butter until the mixture looks like coarse cornmeal. Add milk; stir until evenly moistened.

  • Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface; knead until it forms a smooth ball, about 1 minute. Cut the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each into a ball.

  • Cover the bottom of an air fryer basket with parchment. Combine cinnamon and the remaining 1/3 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Roll 6 of the dough balls in the cinnamon sugar and place in the air fryer basket. Cook at 350 degrees F until browned and puffed, 7 to 8 minutes. Gently remove from the basket. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.

They were pretty good except the fact 7-8 min and golden brown and a bit puffed still means it was doughy on the inside. I don t mind that but for those who do mess with the time Read More
