20220317 Air Fryer Ukrainian Palyanitsa
Rus Brot's Ukrainian Palyanitsa recipe
When I couldn't use my oven because it was baking German bread all day, I used the air fryer to make crusty bread for the first time. It turned out great and was fun too!
It was similar to cold-oven baking using a graniteware roaster. I used a baking pan (1400 ml) and a pizza pan to cover the dough, both made specifically for air fryers. For 500g of dough (~63% hydration), 400F x 30 minutes, then invert the pans and air fry for another 25 minutes @ 400F.
That's it! Super easy!
P.S. The dough was fully-mixed and fermented in the Zojirushi bread machine. You may be able to reduce the baking time - I wasn't checking the loaf as it baked. I just followed the baking time that I normally use in cold-oven baking.
