Does anyone else remember Saturday or Sunday morning pancakes breakfasts? My family would head every Sunday after to church to IHOP, for a great pancake breakfast. They had amazing combinations with all the toppings, yummy.
Now, that I am a hockey mom, I don’t get a lot of weekends (ok; I don’t get any) free, so I have tried to come up with the same traditions, using homemade recipes. Living in New Hampshire/Vermont Border for a while, I also learned that one of the best ways to indulgence is to have pure maple syrup on the table for serving.
I am a BIG fan of homemade pancake mix, because they just taste much better, and they are simple to whip up. If you are running short of time, you could also make a batch of homemade pancake mix, and you can also freeze pancakes. I love that idea, I usually make a batch on a Sunday morning, when I am free, and I make enough to last a month.
To freeze them, all you need to do is to make them how you usually do, and then put them onto a cookie sheet and pop them into the freezer, after about 5 minutes, they will be frozen enough to stack on top of each other and place into a Ziploc bag.
I’m still having the greatest time using my new Air Fryer — between my air fryer and my Instant Pot, I no longer use the stove. LOL.
I have been wondering how long it becomes an obsolete cooking appliance. I am also using it to see what and how I can cook stuff.
This is one recipe that I had on my bucket list of things to try, and it worked, I love playing with new recipes in my air fryer or Instant Pot. They were thicker than regular pancakes. But, they totally were awesome!
The exact time will depend upon the thickness of the pancakes and the wattage of your air fryer. Therefore, it’s best to set the timer for 3-minute intervals and keep on checking. I would want no one to ruin a perfectly good pancake.
Also, I wanted to mention that I am a fan of the air fryer griddle pan; it makes the pancake and eggs so much easier to control and to clean up, so if you are wondering what pan I use, that would be found here:
Now, it seems odd that one would try to make pancakes in the air fryer, but my question is why not? So, I hope this recipe serves you on how to make pancakes in the air fryer. And I also hope that it answers your question on whether you can air fry pancakes. So, whether you use pancake mix, of you want frozen pancakes in the air fryer or even air fryer pancake bites, hopefully, my collection of air fryer pancake recipes will suit you well.
I have not tried reheating pancakes in the air fryer, but I would recommend that you start at 320 degrees F, for about 2 minutes.

I had a package of the muffin mix on hand, and I thought why not? It is easy, light and fluffy!!
- 1 package Jiffy Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
This is the muffin mix I used in this recipe, which I found on Jiffy.com
In a medium-sized bowl mix together the muffin mix, egg and vegetable oil.
Mix well, until everything is well blended.
Then spray your air fryer tray, or place parchment paper down, (basket air fryers, spray with olive oil) and scoop about 2 tablespoons of batter onto the tray.
Set in the air fryer oven for 5 minutes at 320 degrees F. Continue to make, until all of the batters is used (I had 2 trays worth)
Plate, serve and enjoy!
