How to Make Air Fryer Apple Cider Donuts


These air fryer donuts are EASY to make! And this air fryer donut recipe is for apple cider donuts, one of my favorite sweet treats for fall.

These air fried donuts truly taste like apple cider! And since these are air fried donuts, they hold on to flavor without the greasy aftertaste of regular donuts.

Preheat air fryer to 390 Farenheit for five minutes. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon with the sugar using a spoon or fork. Pour the mulling spices syrup (or apple cider concentrate) into a separate small bowl.

Remove biscuit dough from can and press donut holes in center with a biscuit cutter or bottle. Roll donut holes in hands to create a ball. Carefully shape donuts after hole is cut in center.

Hold raw donut over sugar bowl and pour cinnamon sugar over the donut using a spoon. Coat the entire donut and set aside for air frying. Repeat this step with all the donuts and donut holes.

Lower temperature on air fryer to 350 and air fry the donuts for 10 minutes. You may need to air fry the donuts in batches so they have space between each for the dough to rise and hot air to move around the donut.

After air frying the donuts, dip them into the mulling spices syrup, coating all sides. Then dip them into the bowl of cinnamon sugar, coating all sides of the donut.

Serve warm with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy!
