Air Fryer Luck of the Irish Donuts

Who doesn’t enjoy a freshly baked, warm, moist donut? My husband has fond memories of picking up donuts with his grandfather in the wee hours of the morning on their way to the lake to fish. It was a tradition that still holds a special place in his heart 30 years later. He has continued that tradition with his own sons when going hunting or camping as well.

There doesn’t have to be a special day or moment to enjoy a donut with friends or family. Doughnuts can be eaten morning, noon or night. However, doughnuts have the ability to be made with certain amount of zeal and creativity. For example, my husband organizes a Raingutter Regatta event with our Trail Life USA Troop. One of the snacks that are brought are donuts with a sailboat icing. These donuts are amazing to look at and even more amazing to taste!
