Today, I made this amazing bread. I actually made 4 of them. They were delicious, they made a great breakfast, and afternoon snack.
I have been using my air fryer and experiment with different foods. so this is what I came up with.

This is one of the simplest recipes ever, but the taste is fabulous. 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 Air Fryer. 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. So, maybe I will try them all LOL.
I am not a great baker. I love a good baking hack because my family loves dessert, but I’ve never been that good with it. I prefer cooking. But, I have been really experimenting with the air fryer.
The one word of caution about baking in the air fryer is it’s more complicated to bake in the air fryer because it will really depends on your air fryer. What works in one of my air fryers does not work in my other air fryer. My little tip for this, is that I usually set it for a temperature, and then I take it out and look at it, does it need more time, how much time? If it’s sort of golden brown, I usually check on it a LOT in the last 5 minutes of baking/air frying. Basically, because I don’t want to eat up with burnt food. So, use your common sense while baking and don’t’ be afraid to experiment. Most of my greatest recipes have started out as experiments.
My mother used to make these for breakfast and early morning sports games, nowadays I make Quick Bread. Quick breads are great because they can be prepared ahead of time, and they freeze amazingly. Quick bread comes in a huge amount of variety and they are super easy to whip up and create a fast and somewhat healthy breakfast or snack. (They also make a wonderful dessert)
To be successful at making the batter for loaves of bread in the Air Fryer:
- Combine all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. In most quick loaves of bread, this will include flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Whisk them all together.
- Whisk the wet ingredients in another bowl. This usually includes milk, oil, and eggs.
- Then combine the two together and mix until all of 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.
- Be careful not to over mix the batter, as you will increase the level of gluten and the bread will become tough.
I will give you a word of warning these pieces of bread are addicting, you will not be able to eat just one piece. The flavor is AMAZING! This makes an amazing breakfast, pair it with a great cup of coffee and you have the best breakfast you will ever have. I hope that you give it a sot, you will not be disappointed.

This is a great copycat recipe, of the famous Trader Joe's Pancake Bread, the maple syrup in the middle makes it so moist and delicious. This is definitely a winner.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup room temperature butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Start by mixing the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt together in a large mixing bowl.
Then mix in the butter, sugar, eggs, maple syrup, sour cream, and vanilla extract.
Then in a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients.
Prepare mini loaf pans, by spraying with either non-stick cooking spray or olive oil spray. (see my blog post for suggested ones)
Pour the batter into the pans, sprinkle the topping on top, and set in the air fryer oven, for 24 minutes at 320 degrees F. After 24 minutes check and see if the center is cooked, if it is removed it, if not add a couple of more minutes. If your bottom is not cooked, simply take the loaf out of the pan and flip it around (I didn't have this problem, but it's a common problem with some air fryers)
Cool, before slicing.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
