Can I Make These Cinnamon Roll Donuts In Any Air Fryer

Yes, you don’t have to own the Instant Pot Duo Crisp, but it is what I used. Just adjust your temperature on your air fryer, and watch your donuts, as they will cook really fast.

I sprayed the tray with cooking spray. This will help you to prevent your bites or donuts from sticking to the pan. I also did not have to flip these half way through cooking.

The donuts and bites all cooked evenly on both sides, which was really nice. Now if you are using a different type of air fryer, I know they don’t recommend using cooking spray. I personally had no issues with it, so feel free to try without if you want.

How Do You Get Centers Cut Out Of Cinnamon Rolls

I used a shot glass, cause I didn’t have a small circle cookie cutter. You can use what you have on hand. My shot glass worked great and it made it to where I didn’t have to buy something to make these.

You just want something that when you press in on the cinnamon rolls it creates a clean edge. Then you can shape your donuts of need be. I didn’t mind that they were not perfectly circular when I went to bake them.

I used the glaze it came with. What I did was microwave the glaze for about 5-10 seconds to help thin it out a bit. Gave it a quick stir and then used that to dip my donut bites and donuts in. It worked so well, and it gave you that true cinnamon roll flavor.
