Pro Tips:

  • Let the batter chill for about 30 to 60 minutes before air frying; let the dough firm up.
  • Make sure that you thoroughly coat the donut mold with cooking spray before filling the mold; this way, the donut will pop out.
  • Cover the donut with sprinkles while the frosting is wet. Otherwise, the sprinkles will not stick.
  • Store any uneaten donuts in an airtight container so they do not dry out.
