  • Preheat the air fryer to 325 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the boxed cake mix, water, oil and egg. Whisk together until fully combined.
  • Spray the egg bite molds with non stick cooking spray.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to transfer the donut batter into the egg bite molds. Fill only about 3/4 of the way full being very careful not to over fill.
  • Transfer to the air fryer and cook at 325 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted down the center of the donut holes comes out clean.
  • Remove from the air fryer and allow them to cool completely before removing them from the egg bite molds.
  • Pour the white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Make sure to stir in between each interval.
  • Top each chocolate donut hole with the melted white chocolate and sprinkles.
  • Give the white chocolate a little bit of time to dry and serve once ready.


  • It is very important to allow the donuts to cool completely before removing them from the molds, otherwise they will fall apart.
  • Cooking times may vary depending on which air fryer brand you own. Mine were ready in just 8 minutes but you’ll want to check for doneness by inserting a toothpick down the center of the donut holes and making sure it comes out clean. Dry crumbs are fine but there should not be any wet batter on your toothpick.
  • Use good quality white chocolate chips or a white chocolate bar if you prefer.
  • Do not over fill the mold as the donuts will rise as they cook.
  • Always read your air fryer manual before using.
