Easy Air Fryer Pumpkin Donuts Recipe

Easy Air Fryer Pumpkin Donuts Recipe
Donuts are a popular Halloween treat, and they can be made easily at home in the air fryer. Of course, you can choose to get out the deep fryer, fill it with oil, and stink your house up while deep frying, but the air fryer saves time and lots of calories. These Easy Air Fryer Pumpkin Donuts are as good as the deep fried ones, and each batch only takes eight minutes to bake.
Air Fryer Pumpkin Donuts start with a spice cake mix, so it takes almost no time to whip up the batter. The batter is then spooned into a decorating bag or a zip type bag with the corner cut out, and the donuts are piped into the air fryer. If you prefer, you can just pipe a bunch of donut holes. Once baked, the donuts are dipped in butter and cinnamon sugar. When you're craving the flavors of fall, these yummy donuts will definitely satisfy.

24 Donuts

1 15.25 ounce Spice Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 15 oz. can pumpkin, (not pumpkin pie mix)

1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 cup melted butter

  1. Mix the spice cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and pumpkin until smooth; transfer the mixture to a decorating bag or to a zip-type bag with about 1/2" of the corner cut out.
  2. Spray the inside of an air fryer liberally with non-stick spray or brush with a little oil.
  3. Pipe circles into the air fryer to resemble donuts, at least 1/2" thick.
  4. Spray each donut with non-stick spray or brush with oil.
  5. Bake in the air fryer four minutes at 370 degrees
  6. Turn them, spray with non-stick spray, and bake an additional 4-5 minutes.

  9. Place on racks to cool - these donuts are better at room temperature.
