Air-Fryer Cinnamon-Cake Doughnut Holes
“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.”
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar plus ⅓ cup, divided
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
¼ cup whole milk
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1Whisk 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.
2Place 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.
3Cover the bottom of an air fryer basket with parchment. Combine cinnamon and the remaining ⅓ 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°F until browned and puffed, 7 to 8 minutes. Gently remove from the basket. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
