How to Make Homemade Bread in Air Fryer


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water (110°F/43°C)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Activate Yeast: In a bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.

  2. Prepare Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Add the activated yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a dough forms.

  3. Knead Dough: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  4. First Rise: Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise for 1-1.5 hours until doubled in size.

  5. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 350°F (180°C).

  6. Shape Dough: Punch down the risen dough and shape it into a loaf. Place it on parchment paper.

  7. Second Rise: Allow the dough to rise for an additional 30 minutes.

  8. Air Fry: Transfer the parchment paper with the dough to the air fryer basket. Air fry at 350°F (180°C) for 20-25 minutes until the bread is golden brown.

  9. Cool and Slice: Let the bread cool on a wire rack before slicing.
