How to prepare donut recipe in air fryer

  1. First, break the eggs into a bowl. Add the sugar, the vanilla extract and the grated lemon zest and start whipping everything with the electric whisk .
  2. Then incorporate the seed oil and yogurt (if you want you can opt for a flavored one) and work until they are amalgamated.
  3. Finally, still with the whisk in action, incorporate the sifted flour with the baking powder.
  4. Oil and flour a donut mold of 18 cm in diameter (or such as to fit in the basket of your air fryer. Keep in mind that these doses are optimized for this size).
  5. Pour the mixture then cover the mold with a sheet of aluminum foil, leaving the central hole of the donut free.
  6. Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes doing the toothpick test before removing from the oven and possibly prolonging cooking for another 5 minutes.
  7. Once cold, remove the donut from the mold and decorate with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
