There is something so exciting about a simple recipe that works, and this one is as simple as it gets: just 5 ingredients and takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. These “homemade” Orange Cinnamon Glazed Donuts are made from store-bought flaky biscuit dough, stamped with a donut cutter, and quickly cooked in the air fryer. When they come out, they get a flavorful, buttery glaze with orange-cinnamon notes. It’s such a quick way to get a special fall-flavored treat on the table for breakfast. Get the easy recipe below: 

Orange Cinnamon Glazed Air Fryer Donuts.
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16 Donuts
  • 2 Cans of Flaky Biscuit Dough
  • ¼ Cup of Confectioners’ Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tbsp. of Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1 Tsp. Cinnamon
  1. Cut the biscuit dough into a donut shape using a donut cutter (or a small bottle cap to push a hole in the center). Save the centers and use them to make donut holes.
  2. Cooking in batches, places the donuts inside the air fryer set to 350 degrees. Cook for approximately 6 minutes in total, flipping the donuts halfway through. (Donut holes should only take about 4 minutes in total).
  3. While the donuts cook, combine confectioners’ sugar, melted butter, orange juice and cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  4. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the donuts with the orange-cinnamon glaze and serve immediately.
