Air Fryer Donuts


(from scratch)

''Moist, fluffy, and covered with a delicious glaze!''

what you need:

– 1/2 cup warm water – 1/4 cup warm milk – 2¼ teaspoons dry active yeast – ⅓ cup granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon – ¼ cup unsalted butter melted – 1 egg – 1 egg yolk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (add more as needed) – ½ teaspoon salt – Cooking spray – 2 cups powdered sugar – ¼ cup milk – 1 tablespoon light corn syrup – 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract


Mix the warm water and milk with the dry active yeast and a tablespoon of granulated sugar in a large measuring cup. Allow it to froth up and rise for about 5 minutes.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the rest of the sugar, melted butter, egg, egg yolk, vanilla, flour, and salt. Then pour the yeast mixture in and put on the hook attachment.



Start by mixing on low until the flour has been incorporated. Then speed it up to high and beat for 5 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl to get all the dough together.


Let the dough rise. Now place the dough in a large greased bowl and cover it with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Let it rise for about an hour, or until it doubles in size.


Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch in thickness. Then cut out the shapes with a donut cutter or 2 different-sized biscuit cutters.


Place the cut donuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cover slightly. For 20-30 minutes. Preheat the fryer to 345 degrees Fahrenheit and sprinkle the fryer basket with cooking spray

In a large bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla.

Make the donut glaze

While the deep-fried donuts are still warm, dip them in the glaze and place them on the cooling rack to set. Now serve and enjoy!
