Tips For Making The Best Air Fryer Zucchini Pumpkin Quick Bread
- Make sure to squeeze the grated zucchini until there is hardly any water left. Otherwise, your bread will become soggy.
- Remember to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling has been sweetened. If you do use that, your Zucchini Bread with be lovely.
- For best results, use a mini loaf bread.
- The bread will be dependent on what air fryer you own and what pan you use. The larger loaf pans will take longer to cook than smaller loaf pans.
- For best results, do not over mix. Otherwise, you will end up with dense zucchini pumpkin bread.
