Out of interest, has anyone had success with baking bread in an air fryer? Our Philips Air Fryer produces such succulent roasts, that makes me think it could replicate steam for an oven bake, depending....
on late-night informercials. It seems like it would be similar to a miniature convection oven.
I have nothing useful to offer - I'm just posting because I'm curious to see what people think and I want to track this thread.
... I found a recipe for dinner rolls, so with 1 1/2 hours preparation/proofing, followed by 15 minutes in the Air Fryer, "voila" - nine delicately textured, sweet dinner rolls. Quite delicious. Now to adapt for sourdough.
What do the bottoms look like?
... but I did proof/air-fry/bake them on aluminium foil.
to brown the bottoms might be recommended. Would you do it half way through once? or twice returning the upper surface to finish browning?
... I will remove the foil for the last five minutes as total bake time is only 13-15 minutes @160C
