Air Fryer Mini King Cakes Recipe

Mardi Gras is right around the corner and although the celebrations and parades this year have been cancelled due to Covid, the good food doesn’t have to be. Who doesn’t love king cakes for Mardi Gras, it is THE food for the day after all and I have made some mini ones for a bite sized goodness. Except the only thing we don’t love is some of the calories it brings. I always try to reduce those extra calories by opting to use my air fryer over frying in grease. And while I am aware that mini king cakes aren’t fried in grease, I still wanted to try to find a recipe which helps reduce the calories. Check out this super easy and delicious Air Fryer Mini King Cakes Recipe!
