  • 1 Air fryer
  • 1 Mixing bowl
  • 1 Spatula
  • 1 Cookie-cutter


  • 320 grams cone mix or 1 tube Pillsbury Grands Flaky Biscuits
  • 150 ml milk (if using scone mix)
  • 4 table spoon unsalted butter
  • 4 table spoon sugar granulated
  • 1 table spoon cinnamon ground


  • In a mixing bowl add scone mix.
    320 gram scone mix
  • Gradually add milk and knead the mixture very lightly to form a soft, smooth dough.
    150 ml milk
  • Roughly pat down the dough onto a lightly floured surface until the dough is around 1-2 inch thickness.
  • Using a small cookie cutter, cut the dough into doughnut rounds to make simple donut holes.
  • You can also roll the dough into small equal sized balls.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray or use parchment paper.
  • Arrange the donuts in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer. Ensure the bites are not touching each other.
  • Air Fry for 8 minutes on 190 C or 375 degrees F. At 5 minutes, I would open the basket and see how the doughnuts are doing. Give the air fryer basket a little shake.
  • The cooking time will adjust based on the size of your doughnut holes and your air fryer.
  • Whilst the doughnuts are in the air fryer, you can prepare the topping.
  • In a medium bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Ensure your butter is melted and keep in a separate small bowl.
    4 tablespoon sugar,1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Once the dough balls are done, dip them immediately in the melted butter. This helps the sugar to stick to the cooked donut holes.
    4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Allow the excess to drain off and dunk into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Remove and place on a baking sheet or wire rack.
