Emma’s Goodies demonstrates how to make homemade donuts using an air fryer, which is a healthier alternative to traditional deep frying. The process is simple, and the result is a delicious, glazed treat that you can customize to your liking.

The Ingredients 🥣

To start, you’ll need a few basic ingredients:

  • 280 g (2 cups + 3 tbsp flour) All-purpose flour
  • 40 g (3 tbsp) Sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 Egg
  • 120 g (½ cup) Whole milk
  • 40 g (⅓ stick) Melted butter
  • 7 g (1 packet) Dried yeast

For the glaze for donuts:

  • 250 g (2 cups) Powdered sugar
  • 75 g (⅔ stick) Butter
  • 3 or 4 tbsp Milk, depending how thin you like your glaze
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

The Process 🍩

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, the process is straightforward:

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate jug, combine milk, melted butter, one egg, and the yeast.
  3. Mix the dough on high for about three minutes.
  4. Grease your bowl and allow the dough to rise for two hours.
  5. Roll out the dough to about an inch thickness and cut out your donuts.
  6. Place your donuts onto a baking sheet with some parchment paper.
  7. Brush the donuts with some melted butter and allow them to rise for another 45 minutes.
  8. Preheat your air fryer to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit.
  9. Brush the basket with some oil and gently place four donuts into the basket.
  10. Cook these for exactly three minutes.
  11. Glaze the donuts and allow the glaze to set for 10 minutes.

The Result 🎉

The result is a batch of fresh, homemade donuts that are soft, melt in your mouth, and have that beautifully crackly top. They’re everything you want in a donut. Emma promises that you will be amazed at how amazing these are.
