Whip Up Delicious Air Fryer Flapjacks In No Time!

The air fryer has quickly risen from a trendy gadget to a kitchen must-have, proving it’s more than just a lot of hot air!

It’s claimed its spot on countertops around the world, celebrated by tech-savvy foodies and anyone who appreciates the art of simple, delicious food. And let’s face it, anyone who has taken the plunge and brought an air fryer is looking for any excuse to use it.

You might think its talents are limited to just crisping fries and roasting veggies, but you’re in luck, because your air fryer can be used to make a lot of sweet treats too!

In this article, discover why this handy gadget is the unsung hero of the baking world, and how you can make mouth-watering air fryer flapjacks.

Why your air fryer is the ultimate baking accessory

The secret to the air fryer’s success lies in its compact design. A powerful fan circulates hot air rapidly around the compact air fryer basket, creating an environment where food cooks evenly and quickly. This feature makes it an ideal tool for baking, allowing you to achieve perfect results in less time compared to a conventional oven.

Essentially, the air fryer is a small oven on your countertop, ready to tackle anything from cakes and muffins to bread, and yes, flapjacks.

3 Top tips for easy air fryer baking

To get the best results from baking in an air fryer, keep these essential tips in mind:

Tip #1 – Temperature and timing adjustments

To adapt a traditional oven recipe for the air fryer, simply reduce the temperature by 20°C (25°F) and shorten the cooking time by roughly 20%. For example, if your recipe suggests baking at 180°C for 20 minutes, you’ll adjust your air fryer to 160°C for 16 minutes.

Tip #2 – The importance of preheating 

For baked goods that rise with the help of baking soda, baking powder, or yeast, preheating your air fryer is crucial. It starts the baking process off on the right foot, encouraging a perfect rise.

<H3> Tip #3 – Choosing the right containers 

For liquid batters, a cake tin works best. For items like cookies that maintain their shape, baking paper is your go-to. You can use most oven-safe dishes in your air fryer, provided they fit well and allow air to circulate.
