We have two recipes for two different style air fryers. A full 8” square baking pan can be cooked in most oven style air fryers. It will also fit in some of the larger basket-style air fryers, depending on the shape and sides of your pan and the dimensions of your air fryer basket. In the following recipe box, we have a small batch recipe for basket style air fryers that can accommodate an accessory cake bucket pan with handle.
In bowl, stir to combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder. Add egg, creamed corn, and oil. Stir until just combined.
Coat a 8x8 inch square baking pan with oil spray. Optional - cut and oil a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of your pan for easier release. Pour batter into baking pan.
Place baking pan on the lower rack in the air fryer. Air Fry at 360°F/180°C for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick in center of corn bread and when it comes out clean, it’s done. If after 30 minutes the toothpick isn’t fully clean yet but the edges of the cornbread are crisp, then turn off the heat and leave corn bread in the air fryer for about 10 minutes to allow the residual heat to continue cooking the corn bread.
Allow to cool in the pan. It will release from the sides as it cools, making it easier to cut. Serve with honey, butter, or jam.
