Easy Air Fryer Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts

Air Fryer Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts are easy and delicious! This version uses an air fryer. By using less oil, I can use tastier oil, thus my choice is butter. Serve and eat hot. Like traditional doughnuts they are much better hot than cold.


  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg (Optional)
  • 1 (16.3 ounce) package refrigerated flaky biscuit dough (such as Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers)


Place melted butter in a bowl. Combine white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a second bowl.

Separate biscuit dough into individual biscuits and cut out the centers using a biscuit cutter (or the bottom of a piping tip) to create a doughnut shape. Place doughnuts in the air fryer basket.

Air fry at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip doughnuts and cook an additional 1 to 3 minutes.

Remove doughnuts from air fryer. Dip each doughnut into melted butter (making sure to coat top, bottom, and sides), followed by sugar-cinnamon mixture until completed coated. Serve immediately.
