Air Fryer Bread

Air Fryer Bread

We tried all sorts of ways to make bread if you are without an oven — and this was one of our favorites. The crust emerges golden and crisp and the interior is light and airy.

Special equipment: a 15-by-8-cm round pan; a 3L air fryer.


2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the pan

1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour


  • Butter a 15-by-8-cm round pan and set aside.
  • Combine the butter, yeast, sugar, salt and 1 cup warm water in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. With the mixer on low speed, add 1/2 cup of the flour at a time, waiting for each addition to be fully incorporated before adding more. Once all of the flour is added, knead on medium speed for 8 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared pan, cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Add the pan with the dough to a 3L air fryer and set to 190 degrees Celsius. Cook until the bread is dark brown and the internal temperature registers 90 degrees Celsius, about 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Hi Hi! Haier!

Hi Hi! Haier!

Did you know that Haier is one of the world’s biggest appliance manufacturers and distributors in the world? And now you can get your very own high quality Haier appliance at a very pleasing price tag, from us, right here at Cape Demo Appliances.

Haier had been founded as Qingdao Refrigerator Co. in 1984. With China opening up to world markets, foreign corporations began searching for partnerships in China. One of these, Germany’s refrigerator company Liebherr entered into a joint-venture contract with Qingdao Refrigerator Co., offering technology and equipment to its Chinese counterpart and from there, as they say, the rest is history.

This video gives a short background on this excellent company.
