In the past, I’ve tried Air Fryer Cookies. I’d like to expand that!If you want to do a from scratch recipe in your air fryer you can adapt this Gluten Free Cake or these cinnamon roll cupcakes.

  1. I just have to ask, do you have any recipe for air fryer bread? considering the quarantine situation now, I really wanna try it on my air fryer. Thanks

    1. That’s a great question!! I don’t but I think it would be something to work on for sure! BTW, I LOVE your site! I have a pup of my own!

    1. Hi Vicky, I am not 100% sure, but it should be very similar. Some members in our facebook group have the oven you have and they’ve made many of our other recipes and the timing/temp was almost exact. It may take a bit of playing. I would just watch/check them in the last 3-4 minutes 🙂

    The kids have been getting quite bored with being at home during this pandemic. So I decided I’d involve them more in the kitchen. I saw your directions for air fryer cupcakes and I knew we had a box mix. We made them together and they turned out great. So easy!!

    1. I have tried them and they worked for me. They do make me a little more nervous but the 2 times I used them it worked okay. 🙂 I ended up buying the silicone ones for more peace of mind 🙂

    I have got to tell you that these turned out great. I got some boxed cake mix from my latest grocery delivery. I made these today with my toddler and they turned out great! Super easy!

  4. 5 stars
    I am so excited about this. I made these today with my daughter and they were great! I plan on trying a muffin mix next time!
