Making these Cosori Air Fryer Doughnut recipes is easy and they will look just like the deep-fried ones you will find in your favourite doughnut shop – the secret is the glaze. It adds sweetness whilst keeping the doughnuts soft.

Here are our easy step-by-step instructions. You will need the following for the dough:


250 ml milk, lukewarm (about 100°F)°

2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast, or instant yeast

50 g granulated sugar, plus 1 tsp

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

60 g unsalted butter, melted

375 g all-purpose flour

Oil Spray, Coconut oil works best

Start with the yeast dough. Activate the yeast by sprinkling it over lukewarm milk and a little bit of sugar. Stir gently.

Let this mixture sit for about ten minutes. You should start seeing little yeast particles popping. The mixture should by now be frothy and smell like yeast. If after 15 minutes nothing has happened, it probably means your yeast is no longer active and you need to start over. Either the milk was too cold or too warm.

Add the remaining dough ingredients and knead the dough until elastic, smooth, and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Spray a bowl with non-stick spray and transfer the dough to it. Gently coat the dough with oil. Cover the bowl with a piece of plastic wrap. Put it in a warm spot and let it rise until doubled.

Roll out the dough to around 1.5cm thickness on a lightly floured work surface. Cut the doughnuts to your desired size. We went for the normal size you find in every shop. Use either a biscuit shape or a glass you have in your kitchen and pantry.

To make doughnut holes just use the dough that you cut out from the middle of the doughnut. A sweet doughnut glaze that dries into crackly goodness is easy and will make your Cosori Air Fryer Doughnuts amazing!

For an amazing doughnut glaze that dries and gets crackly you will need:

  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter

  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 4 Tbsp hot water

The resulting amount will be more than you need, but this makes it easier to dip them in the glaze. So, better to have too much glaze otherwise coating can get difficult!

As a bonus, use your Cosori Air Fryer to prepare some super crunchy streaky bacon, cut them into small pieces and sprinkle them all over the Cosori Air Fryer doughnuts.
