How To Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Sticky Buns
Start by mixing the brown sugar, butter, raisin, pecans, and ground cinnamon together.
Spray your muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil spray—scoop 2 tablespoons of the topping on the bottom of the pan.
Cut your dough into pieces so you use all your dough up, I marked mine, for easy cutting. Place the dough on top of the topping.
Air Fryer for 5 minutes at 330, then when the top is golden brown, flip them and air fry for another 4 minutes. If they are still gooey after that, continue air frying until they are completely done.
PRO TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE
- You can serve with caramel sauce right before serving.
- These are amazing for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert.
- Let them cool before serving; remember the butter mixture is boiling.
- You can skip on the raisins if you do not like them.
ARE STICKY BUNS THE SAME AS CINNAMON ROLLS?
No, although the same dough is used, you will notice that the glaze on top really brings a wow factor to these Air Fryer Cinnamon Sticky Buns.
While cinnamon rolls usually have powdered sugar icing, today, I am serving these up with melted butter and brown sugar coating.
CAN THEY BE PREPARED IN ADVANCE?
For best results, I would recommend that you make these on the same day you are planning to serve them.
But if you have leftovers, let them cool to room temperature and then cover them with saran wrap, and then place them into the refrigerator, or if you are going to eat them the next day, place them at room temperature.
SHOULD THEY BE REFRIGERATED?
I usually do not place these into the refrigerator, as the coating will get hard, but if you want to keep them longer than a day, place them into the refrigerator.
You will need to reheat them in either the microwave or in the air fryer basket. Heat until warmed through.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
These will last for about 4 days in the refrigerator. After that, the dough will become hard, so you best dispose of them and make a new batch.
