2. Air-Fried Cinnamon and Sugar Doughnuts

"I love hot cinnamon doughnuts, but don't like or have all the oil to make the recipes," says MumAndMe. "This air fryer version uses less fat, so much choice is butter. Serve and eat hot. Like traditional doughnuts they are much better hot than cold."

Top Tip: Cooking time may vary depending on the strength and capacity of your air fryer.
