I combined flour, butter, yeast, sugar and salt and gave it a quick mix with this Ox dough whisk, which comprises three differently sized coils stacked around each other. I didn’t give it the full eight minutes the recipe recommended simply because my arm couldn’t handle it, but I made sure the ingredients were fully incorporated and the dough was totally mixed.
I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the air fryer setting transformed my dough into a soft loaf of bread with a crisp exterior. It’s a pretty standard loaf of white bread, but I’ve been finding ways to spice it up all week by topping with my favorite peach jam, a fried egg or turning it into French toast.
Since all air fryer baskets are different sizes and shapes you may be able to fit both pans, or one at a time. We have this electric air fryer also which has a nice large, square basket which both at the same time.
Active dry yeast Sugar Warm water Milk Salt Vegetable oil Melted butter Use just a bit of cooking spray inside your pans if it already has a non-stick or Teflon coating.
This recipe will make 2 small loaf pans full which I would say would create about 12 servings, depending on how thick your slices are of course. Once you split your dough into two equal pieces and place it into your pans, it will need to rise again.
As soon as the dough rises just above the lip of the pans, they’re about ready to bake and get golden brown on the top. It’s important to allow bread to cool all the way, barely warm.
If you want it a bit easier though, you can use frozen rolls and make this amazing pull apart air fryer garlic bread recipe. Printable recipe is below complete with nutritional information such as saturated fat amounts etc.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk warm water, sugar, and yeast together. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, combining well until it forms a ball.
Cover bowl with a thick kitchen towel and allow the dough to rise for about an hour. Split dough in half and form each piece into a loaf shape.
Cover with a kitchen towel and allow the dough to rise (about 30 minutes) again until it is about an inch above the pan. * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet.
Combine the butter, yeast, sugar, salt and 1 cup warm water in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. With the mixer on low speed, add 1/2 cup of the flour at a time, waiting for each addition to be fully incorporated before adding more.
Transfer the dough to the prepared pan, cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Add the pan with the dough to a 3.5-quart air fryer and set to 380 degrees F. Cook until the bread is dark brown and the internal temperature registers 200 degrees F, about 20 minutes.
(Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.) The crust emerges golden and crisp and the interior is light and airy.
But, like most home bakers, once you find a recipe you like, you tweak it a bunch, until it suits your family needs. My dad liked it with a side of honey, my sister liked it with lemon zest, I liked it with less sour cream.
Most of the time, it was when I had some bananas that were a little too past their peak, to give them to my children as snacks. I really love cranberry bread, it’s one of my favorite and I always have it with a smear of cream cheese, during the fall months.
And to be honest with you, nothing beats a fall morning with homemade cranberry bread and a nice hot cup of coffee. The quickest bread has the same basic ingredients so once you master them, you should be able to tackle any quick bread.
I always use all-purpose, which is really made for the home baker, since most of us wouldn’t run to a store, just to buy special types of flour for each recipe. The key to the all-purpose flour and why it is suitable for baking is that it has a medium gluten protein count of about 9.5-11.5% (Thank you, Wikipedia).
This protein count is actually really important to remember because when you are baking, it’s really important not to over mix because over mixing the gluten will cause your final product, whether it’s cakes, cookies, or quick bread to be harder and denser. It does so because as your science teacher taught you, it causes a chemical reaction with releasing carbon dioxide gas, with some acid in the recipe.
This ingredient is really important in cakes, bread, cupcakes, pancakes, and other fluffy baked goods. But sugar does play a significant role in the baking process.
So, if you are looking for a sugar alternative, please note that the recipe may need additional air frying time, since all sugars are moist, and they may require additional cooking time. Now, I give a lot of quick breads and other baked goods out, around the holidays and even during the school year, for teachers, and other events.
And to be honest, once you get into the air fryer world, you want another one for side dishes (and, I’m so hoping that is true and not just me) OFNI Hairdryer, By Instant Pot: This is my newest addition, and I am in love.
Also, this was my first air fryer oven, so I am loving making cookies, pancakes and other food that needed a flat surface. The air fryer does a great job of making this bread light and airy.
Pour the batter into a greased air fryer safe pan. NOTE: The exact time is going to depend on the air fryer model you have and the pans that you are using.
This actually is going to be a regular series on my blog, because as I recently discovered, there are so many quick breads that do fabulous in the Hairdryer. I didn’t even know before today, that Williams Sonoma has a huge section of their website dedicated to this.
They have amazing flavors such as Pineapple Brown Sugar, doesn’t that sound fabulous, to strawberry. If it’s sort of golden brown, I usually check on it a LOT in the last 5 minutes of baking/ air frying.
So, use your common sense while baking and don’t’ be afraid to experiment. Quick breads are great because they can be prepared ahead of time, and they freeze amazingly.
Then combine the two together and mix until all the dry ingredients are gone, scrape the bottom of the pan. To make sure that when you fill the cake pan, you do not come across any flour, that has not to be absorbed into the wet ingredients.
Today we are talking about how to make boxed quick bread mixes in the air fryer, whether they are banana, cranberry, date, or chocolate chip. Then pour the prepared batter into an air fryer safe pan, which has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (you can also use olive oil spray) Set in your air fryer oven or basket and set the temperature for 330 degrees F, for 10 minutes, after 10 minutes, flip the quick bread and cook for another 5 minutes, until both sides are set.
