White Bread Loaf (Air Fryer)

Ever since I bought my air fryer, I am determined not to turn it into a white elephant.  

This time I spotted an interesting White Bread Loaf recipe and it does looks easy to prepare and true enough I was able to get the loaf ready before my lunch date with my pals.

After I put the dough into the air fryer, I went to take a shower.  After I came out, I can detect a strong burnt smell in the air.  Immediately I thought that my bread will be a goner.  Run down and realised that it was burnt because of the top heating element.

Darn, should have baked it into small bun instead.

After it was cooled down, I quickly sliced a few slices to bring to my girl friends for feedback.  

Verdict: It was soft and fluffy and tasted good.  In fact SL wanted the recipe so that she can try too.

Thanks CP for sharing this recipe via the FB Air Fryer group.

Note: This recipe best eaten fresh within a day.  It will not stay soft the next day but you can toast it and slap on some jam or butter and it will be still okay.


What you need:

A
300g plain flour
2 tbs honey
2 tbs condense milk
1 tsp salt
2 tsp instant yeast

B
1 small egg
150ml cold milk

C
30ml olive oil

Method:

Mix (A) add (B). Knead to a dough.

Mix (C) & knead to a smooth dough.

Proof till it double in size.

Punch it down, shape & rest 10 - 15mins.

Brush with water.

AF at 160°C for 20mins.

  2. Hi Edith,

    Interesting that you have your air fryer to bake this bread. I thought of buying it initially but can't think of any purpose for me to use it :p Now, I'm changing my opinion...

    3. You can but double wrap a tin foil over it to prevent it expanding to hit the top grill.

  9. Made whole wheat rolls today - turned out wonderfully:
    1/2 C hot water
    1/2 T dry yeast
    1 T Vital gluten
    1/2 tspn salt
    2 T Brown sugar
    2 T Melted butter
    1 C Whole wheat flour

    Throw everything into mixer except 1/4 C of the flour. Beat with a wire wisk. Add remaining flour while using mixer a little at a time until dough pulls away from sides. Let mixer knead for 5 minutes. Remove dough, form ball and let rest for 2-3 minutes. flatten ball by hand to about 8" across, cut in quarters and form 4 balls. Liberally butter small, square-ish Pyrex dish that fits easily in air fryer. Place formed balls in dish and pre-heat air fryer at 360 degrees for 30 seconds, place Pyrex dish with rolls in air fryer to proof for 25 minutes (or so to double depending on local temp and humidity). Bake for 12 minutes at 360 degrees. 5 minutes prep, 5 minutes knead, 25 minutes proof, 12 minutes bake = 47 minutes! Enjoy

  12. I used a baby-Bosch to knead the dough for the 5 minutes - that was the only other kitchen appliance other than the air fryer.

    1. Wow a baby Bosch only needed 5 mins to knead? Will explore once my two mixers breaks down. Right now my KA and Kenwood is serving me pretty well. Already more than 15 yrs and 7 yrs and still working good.
