Best Air Fryer Cornbread Recipe

Air fryer cornbread comes out so pretty! Baking in an air fryer works fantastic and saves room in your oven during the holidays too.

Have you made air fryer cornbread yet? It’s a great side dish alongside any meal. Make it sweet or savory with diced chiles and it’s moist every time. One of our favorite easy air fryer recipes. (affiliate links present)

I made ours with chiles to go with our favorite 5 ingredient Crockpot chili. Poured into a bundt pan, it comes out really pretty too.

If you love air fryer recipes too, here are some resources to start with:

You can use any brand machine you have. I like this one because the basket is nice and big, and square.

Can I use aluminum pan in air fryer?

Yes. With meats and vegetables you don’t want to so the air can circulate around each piece.

When it comes to baking in an air fryer it is necessary. I like this small bundt pan for this and our air fryer banana bread.

Most Instant Pot accessories will fit into this machine too, just FYI.

Can you use paper muffin cups in an air fryer?

Silicone cups are better. If you wanted to use this batter to instead make air fryer muffins you could do that too. Cornbread muffins would take a lot less time.

How do I make cornbread from scratch?

I have a homemade cornbread recipe below for this you can follow. There are tons of variations though. Most cornmeal boxes or bags have a recipe on the back too.

Why does my cornbread fall apart?

It is kinda’ crumbly by nature. If you use more flour it will stick together a bit better. Using full fat buttermilk will help keep it moist too.

Ok here we go with the instructions. I accidentally grabbed a lower fat buttermilk, I wouldn’t recommend that if you have the choice. You want it to be as moist as possible.

Of course you can use your own favorite recipe for this. If you don’t have one I provided a version below too.

  1. You will need this 7″ bundt pan
  2. Cornmeal
  3. All purpose flour
  4. Butter
  5. Egg
  6. Buttermilk
  7. Sugar
  8. Baking soda
  9. Salt
  10. Non stick cooking spray
  11. Aluminum foil

To save myself more dishes to wash I just mix the dry ingredients in a large measuring cup and the wet in another, then combine.

Make sure the butter is melted so the batter becomes smooth. If you decide to add a can of diced chiles you will have about 1/4 cup of batter left over after filling the bundt 3/4 of the way full.

If you make muffins just use it all until the mixture is all baked. I haven’t tried this in any other pan as of yet because this comes out so well.

  • If you had a small iron skillet you may be able to make 2 batches since it would be more shallow and take less time.

  1. Mix

    In a bowl mix dry ingredients. In another bowl add melted butter and remaining wet ingredients, stir both. Add wet ingredients into dry bowl and stir until combined.

  2. Prepare

    Preheat air fryer to 330 degrees F for 5 minutes. Spray 7″ bundt pan with non stick spray and pour batter inside leaving 1″ space left at the top, there will be a bit of batter left over.

  3. Cook

    Cover pan loosely with foil and put into air fryer basket. Cook at 330 degrees covered for 35 minutes. Then remove foil and increase temperature to 350 F and cook for another 9 minutes.

  4. Check and serve

    Put toothpick into center and ensure there is no wet batter left (if using this size pan this timing is perfect). Remove pan, put plate on top, carefully flip over, slice and serve.
