Donuts, donuts, and more donuts are everyone’s favorite. Today, I made a simple batch of one of my childhood favorites, Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Donuts.
They are quick and delicious and provide an easy, grab-and-go breakfast.
Homemade air-fried donuts are such an amazing easy treat, and they will save you a ton of money on trips to the donut store.
Most people start air frying with a basic donut recipe, using biscuit dough that’s available in the refrigerator section. (Check out my link to that, it’s a great beginner recipe, so if you are looking for a great recipe, start with it, as you only need one ingredient) It’s a great air frying hack, but it doesn’t give you the real donut experience. To get you to have to mix the dough, use yeast and let it rise. This way, you get a light donut.
If you are looking for some homemade air fryer donut recipes, I have some great ones for the air fryer, including AIR FRYER EASY FUNFETTI CAKE MIX DONUTS, AIR FRYER RASPBERRY LEMON DONUTS, AIR FRYER COPYCAT KRISPY KREME DONUTS, and AIR FRYER CHURRO DONUTS.
How To Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Donuts
Remove the Cinnamon Rolls From the Package and your hand to flatten them.
Use your biscuit cutter and cut out the middle, put the centers to the side.
Spray your air fryer basket with cooking spray. And place your cinnamon roll donuts in the basket. Set the temperature to 320 degrees F, air fryer setting for 5 to 6 minutes.
Immediately drizzle the icing on top of the cinnamon roll donut.
What Cinnamon Rolls Can I Use For This Recipe?
While today, I used Pillsbury Rolls, you can use any brand that you want for this recipe; I have used Trader Joe’s and the store-brand in the same recipe with the same results. I have also used Aldi’s Brand and Costco for the same recipe.
What is the benefit of making these?
The truth is while you can make them in the regular shape, these are FUN. And who doesn’t love a fun breakfast with the family that takes less than 10 minutes?
Plus, truthfully, everyone will eat these; I have never met anyone who would pass on an Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Donut!
How do you make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls?
You can use any air fryer you want; I have used the same recipe over the years in different air fryers.
I have used this in the Ninja Foodi, The Instant Pot Vortex, and the Instant Pot Crisping Lid. The recipe will work the same.
How long do you cook Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Donuts?
The exact time will be dependent on what air fryer you own, but I find that anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes works perfectly.
If you want to get an even better batch of Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Donuts, add the icing to the cinnamon roll donuts and let the air fryer melt the icing. So good and easy. Just be careful that you do not burn yourself.
Can you use Aluminum Foil or Parchment Paper in the Air Fryer?
Yes, I have used both without any problems. I have a couple of words of advice about using foil and parchment paper.
For foil, the most important thing is that you do not obstruct the airflow. Remember, the air fryer works by circulating hot air around the air fryer machine. When you limit the amount of airflow, you will notice that your food takes longer to cook.
For parchment paper, a lot of people have been having fires with it. Because the food is not weighted down properly. You need to make sure that your food weighs the parchment paper down during the cooking process.
Or use a Reusebale Air Fryer Liner. The weight of the silicone will make sure that the parchment paper does not fly around the air fryer basket, and there will be no fire as a result.
What about biscuits in the air fryer?
You can cook anything in the air fryer; one of my favorite and first recipes was a can of Pillsbury Biscuits in the Air Fryer, perfect and delicious.
