Tips for a good recipe for anise donuts in a airfryer
- Be careful when heating the oil with the anise because it burns easily (better medium-low heat)
- To save you the process of mixing and kneading you can use a mixer (or Thermomix)
- Make the plastic wrap touch the dough so that a crust does not form when cooling
- If you want you can add Olive oil spray before cooking the donuts and sprinkle with icing sugar before they cool
- Don't forget to flip them over so they brown on both sides.
- For fluffier anise donuts, separate the white from the eggs and whip to stiff peaks with a wire whisk (we will mix everything else and add this last)
