For the donuts:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1 large egg

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Lightly grease the air fryer basket or donut molds with cooking spray or butter.

Spoon or pipe the batter into the donut molds, filling them about three-quarters full.

Place the filled molds in the preheated air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other.

Cook the donuts in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through. You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into a donut; if it comes out clean, they're ready.

While the donuts are cooking, prepare the cinnamon sugar coating. In a shallow bowl, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.

Once the donuts are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool for a minute or two.

Dip each warm donut into the melted butter, making sure to coat both sides. Then, roll the donut in the cinnamon sugar mixture until fully coated.

Place the coated donuts on a wire rack to cool completely or serve them warm for a delightful treat.

Repeat the process with the remaining donuts until all are coated.

Enjoy these heavenly Air Fryer Cinnamon Sugar Donuts with a cup of coffee or as a delightful snack any time of the day.
