Strawberry Icing


  • Preheat the airfryer to 180c.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl whisk together your butter, self raising flour, caster sugar and the brown sugar.
  • In another bowl mix together your milk, butter and egg.
  • Gently mix in the second bowl into the first and make sure you don’t over mix as you just want the ingredients to be combined.
  • Roll the dough out until 3/4 inch thickness.
  • Using a cutter remove the centre from the doughnut shapes so that they look like a pre-cooked doughnut.
  • Grease a baking sheet inside the airfryer and add your doughnuts. Cook for 15 minutes at 180c or until they spring back when lightly pressed.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes while you make your icing. Cream the butter and gradually add the icing sugar until you have a creamy mixture. Add the food colouring, whipped cream and blended strawberries and mix well.
  • When the doughnuts have cooled place the icing over the top.
  • Serve!


This recipe is for making four doughnuts. You can place four in the bottom of your airfryer really easily and if you want more double your recipe and do two rounds in it.
