Some Common Questions About Making Muffins in The Air Fryer.

Can You Bake in the Air Fryer?

Yes, absolutely. Although all of the temperatures and times will need to be adjusted. Prepare the pans as you would typically, spraying them with non-stick cooking spray. You will also have to change the recipes so that you only fill the air fryer-sized pans. (Sometimes, the cake mix and brownie mix prepared must be split between two pans.) With muffins, it doesn’t matter that much.

What Can I Bake In An Air Fryer?

Anything that you can bake in a regular oven. Including,

  • Cookies
  • Cakes
  • Pies
  • Brownies
  • Cornbread
  • Cupcakes
  • Quickbreads
  • Donuts
  • Pastry
  • The choices are endless

Can You Use Paper Muffin Cups in An Air Fryer?

Yes, however, be careful. Several members of our Air Fryer Group have had experiences where the paper got caught in the heating element and caused a fire. For this reason, I suggest that you purchase a metal pan or use a silicone muffin pan.

How Do You Convert Baking Time To Air Fryer?

The general rule of thumb is to reduce the temperature by 25 degrees F, and the cooking time from 15% to 25%.

What Dishes Can Go Into The Air Fryer?

You can use anything that is oven-safe. Anything that can go into the oven can go into the air fryer. This includes glass, metal, ceramic, or silicone. Be careful with glass; some glass is not oven-safe. Always check with the manufacturer to see if the item is oven-safe.

Can I Put Aluminium Foil in An Air Fryer?

Yes, but be careful not to restrict airflow. Never block all of the baskets, and make sure the basket is carefully weighted down to avoid blowing into the heating element.
