How to make Biscoff doughnuts in an air fryer

Start by preheating the air fryer to 190C before preparing the dough.

To do this, separate it into small, even chunks to form the portions for each doughnut.

Then, flatten the dough and use a small lid or round object to cut holes in the middle of each one.

Place the mini doughnuts in the air fryer in a single layer, leaving plenty of space to avoid overlaps between each one.

Air fry for four minutes until golden brown, flipping halfway through for even cooking. Five minutes may be better to get them perfect.

Melt the Biscoff spread in the microwave until soft then gently dip the cooked doughnuts in the gooey spread and top with a dusting of sieved icing sugar.
