Airfryer Brownies

A different brownie recipe to show off the versatility of the Airfryer.

Serves: 12


  • 75 g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 75 g butter (75 ml)
  • 1 large egg
  • 60 g sugar (90 ml)
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • 40 g self-raising cake flour (90 ml)
  • 25 g walnuts, pecan nuts, hazelnuts, or chocolate chips, chopped (optional)


  1. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a thick-bottomed steel pan on low heat while stirring.
  2. Alternatively, melt in the microwave in a glass bowl or jug on 100% power for 2 – 3 minutes. Allow this mixture to cool to room temperature.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 180 degrees.
  4. Line a small 15 cm-diameter cake pan with baking paper; grease well.
  5. In an electric food mixer, beat the egg with the sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until light and creamy (about 3 minutes).
  6. Beat in the chocolate mixture; stir in the self-raising flour and the nuts or chopped chocolate.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Smooth the top.
  8. Place the cake pan in the airfryer basket then slide the basket into the airfryer.
  9. Set the timer to 20 minutes and bake the brownie until the top is crisp.
  10. The inside should still be nice and soft.
  11.  Allow the brownie to cool in the cake tin. When cool, cut it into 12 pieces.

Equipment: Measuring cups and spoons, scale, small saucepan (or chocolate and butter may be melted in a jug in the microwave), 15 cm-diameter cake tin, baking paper, spatula, pastry brush for greasing, scissors, metal spatula, sharp knife, oven gloves, serving platter, serviettes.
