I love a great slice of pumpkin bread and usually treat myself at Starbucks by getting a slice with my PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte)

Today, I made this fantastic bread. I made 3 of them. They were delicious; they made a great breakfast and afternoon snack. And the bread came from a simple kit you can get at Walmart, Amazon, or your local grocery store!

I have been using my air fryer and experimenting with different foods. So this is what I came up with.

While I do not usually use box mixes in my cooking, I make them and typically do not share them. This recipe was so good; I wanted everyone to make it—moist, tender, and delicious.

I found this mix at my local grocery store, and as you know, I love a great slice of pumpkin bread, so my thought went to why not?

The package includes everything you need to make a significant slice of pumpkin bread, including bread mix, pumpkin puree, and the instructions. The box says it will make 2 loaves. I made 3 mini loaves, which are perfect for the air fryer.

Why Make Libby’s Pumpkin Bread In Air Fryer?

Making Libby’s Pumpkin Bread in an air fryer offers several compelling benefits, making it an attractive option for novice and experienced bakers. Here are some reasons why you might choose to bake this seasonal treat in your air fryer:

  • Efficiency: Air fryers heat up quickly and often bake faster than conventional ovens, saving you time. This means you can enjoy your pumpkin bread sooner, with less waiting around for preheating and baking.

  • Energy Savings: Using an air fryer can be more energy-efficient than heating up a full-sized oven, especially for small batches. This is both environmentally friendly and can help reduce your energy bills.

  • Consistent Results: The compact space and rapid air circulation of an air fryer promote even baking and browning. This means your pumpkin bread is likely to come out perfectly cooked every time, with a delightful crust and moist interior.

  • Convenience: Air fryers are easy to use and clean, making the baking process more straightforward and less messy. The non-stick surfaces and compact cooking chamber mean you spend less time on cleanup and more time enjoying your pumpkin bread.

  • Year-Round Baking Comfort: Unlike traditional ovens that can heat up your kitchen, air fryers contain the heat within their small chamber. This makes baking comfortable any time of the year, even on hot days.

  • Perfect for Small Households: If you’re baking for one or two or don’t want a large quantity of pumpkin bread lying around, an air fryer allows you to bake smaller batches more feasibly.

  • Versatility: Beyond pumpkin bread, once you start baking with your air fryer, you’ll find it can handle a wide range of baked goods, from cakes and cookies to other quick breads, making it a versatile tool in your kitchen arsenal.

  • Experimentation and Fun: Using an air fryer for baking can be a fun experiment, offering a new way to enjoy your favorite recipes. It encourages culinary creativity and might just become your preferred method for certain types of baking.

In sum, making Libby’s Pumpkin Bread in an air fryer is not only about embracing the convenience and efficiency of modern cooking appliances but also about achieving delicious, comforting results with minimal fuss. Whether you’re a pumpkin spice aficionado or simply looking for a quick and easy way to satisfy your sweet tooth, the air fryer presents a compelling option for baking this beloved fall treat.

Pro Tips

Making Libby’s Pumpkin Bread in an air fryer is a delightful way to enjoy a fall favorite easily and conveniently. To ensure the best results, here are some pro tips for air frying this tasty treat:

  • Preheat Your Air Fryer: Although not all air fryers require preheating, doing so can help achieve a more consistent cooking environment from the start. If your air fryer has a preheat setting, use it according to the temperature suggested on the Libby’s Pumpkin Bread Mix box.

  • Choose the Right Pan: If you’re not pouring the batter directly into the air fryer basket, ensure the baking pan or loaf pan you use is air fryer-safe and fits comfortably inside the basket. This allows for optimal air circulation and even cooking.

  • Grease the Pan Well: Use a non-stick cooking spray or a light layer of oil to grease your pan or basket thoroughly. This step prevents sticking and ensures your pumpkin bread comes out of the pan easily after baking.

  • Don’t Overfill the Pan: Fill the baking pan only about two-thirds full to allow the bread room to rise. Overfilling can lead to uneven baking and a doughy center.

  • Check for Doneness Early: Air fryers can cook more efficiently than conventional ovens, so start checking your pumpkin bread for doneness a bit earlier than the box instructions suggest. Insert a toothpick into the center of the bread; if it comes out clean, the bread is done.

  • Rotate or Flip If Necessary: Depending on your air fryer model, you may need to rotate the pan halfway through cooking to ensure even browning and baking. Some air fryers cook more intensely from the top or bottom, so adjusting the bread’s position can help achieve a uniformly baked loaf.

  • Let It Cool Before Slicing: Allow the pumpkin bread to cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 10 minutes before removing it. Then, let it cool completely on the rack before slicing to prevent it from falling apart.

  • Customize Your Bread: Feel free to add your own twist to the mix, such as a cup of fresh or canned pumpkin for extra moisture and flavor, or mix in nuts, chocolate chips, or dried cranberries for added texture.

  • Storing the Bread: Wrap any leftovers tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and store at room temperature for a few days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate or freeze the bread.

  • Serving Suggestions: Enhance your pumpkin bread by serving it with a spread of cream cheese, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for extra sweetness.

Following these tips will help you make a delicious, moist, and perfectly cooked Air Fryer Libby’s Pumpkin Bread that captures the essence of autumn in every bite.

Can I make Libby’s Pumpkin Bread in any air fryer model?

Yes, you can make Libby’s Pumpkin Bread in any air fryer model, as long as the baking pan or dish you use fits comfortably inside the air fryer basket and allows for proper air circulation.

How do I adjust the baking time if my air fryer cooks faster or slower?

Start checking for doneness about 10 minutes earlier than the recommended time, especially if you know your air fryer cooks faster. If the bread isn’t done, continue cooking, checking every few minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. For slower air fryers, you might need to extend the cooking time slightly.

Can I double the recipe in the air fryer?

Doubling the recipe is possible if you have a large enough air fryer and baking pan. However, it’s often better to bake in batches to ensure even cooking and the best texture.

What can I add to the mix for extra flavor or texture?

Consider adding nuts like walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, or a cup of pure pumpkin puree for extra moisture and flavor. Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves can also enhance the pumpkin flavor.

How can I ensure the bread comes out moist?

Not overcooking the bread is key to keeping it moist. Additionally, adding a bit of extra pumpkin puree or a tablespoon of yogurt can help enhance the moisture content.

Can I use this mix to make pumpkin muffins in the air fryer?

Absolutely! Adjust the cooking time to account for the smaller size of muffins compared to a loaf. Start checking for doneness around 15-20 minutes into cooking.

What’s the best way to store leftover pumpkin bread?

Wrap the cooled bread tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, refrigerate or freeze the bread.

Can I make this bread gluten-free?

To make gluten-free pumpkin bread, use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend in place of the regular mix. Ensure all other ingredients added are also gluten-free.

How do I prevent the top of the bread from burning?

If the top of the bread is browning too quickly, place a piece of aluminum foil loosely over it midway through cooking to protect it from direct heat.

Can I bake this bread without parchment liners?

Yes, you can bake the bread without parchment liners by greasing the baking pan well. However, parchment liners can make removal easier and help with cleanup.
