Fluffy Air Fryer Pancakes

Your search for the ideal air fryer pancake recipe and tried-and-true techniques is over. You only need a few ingredients and a few simple steps to make perfectly cooked pancakes with a lovely shape, incredible texture, and mouthwatering flavor! I’ll demonstrate how to prepare the ideal pancakes in this recipe, which are excellent for breakfast, brunch, or whenever you need a tasty pick-me-up.

What Equipment Do I Need?

You’ll need an air fryer, as the title suggests! Any working air fryer is OK, but if you want to get the most of your air fryer, buy one with an XL basket. This type of basket is quite useful – I wish I’d known about it sooner, but at least you can learn from my mistakes!

Disposable aluminum 5- or 6-inch pie tins or mini springform pans are required as the second piece of equipment.

This size is ideal for pancakes, and because to the thinness of the disposable tin, your pancakes will be precisely cooked on the bottom. The same is true for tiny springform pans, which have a thin bottom. If you use ceramic or glass oven-proof containers, the pancakes will be undercooked.

Can I Cook Pancakes On Parchment Paper?

You may have seen a TikTok video in which an individual prepares pancakes by piling pancake batter on sheets of parchment paper. The outcome is flawless pancakes. I’ll tell you one thing: that is a complete hoax, and you will not achieve the same outcomes as using the strategy I’m employing.

I once prepared those pancakes out of curiosity, but they turned out undercooked, extremely flat, and unappetizing. Never more. Therefore, my point is that you should not trust everything you see on the Internet.

How Do I Make Multiple Pancakes In The Air Fryer?

When using an air fryer to cook a large quantity of pancakes, it is recommended to use disposable baking tins or smaller springform pans and to create the pancakes on a small scale.

For maximum efficiency, it’s recommended that you invest in an XL air fryer, as the number of items you can cook at once is proportional to the size of the air fryer’s basket.

When cooked in a disposable tin or mini springform pan, pancakes expand to their full size and maintain their shape for uniform cooking. I know this works since I have tried every other way out there and they all fail.

Can I Reuse Disposable Tins?

Although these tins are labeled as disposable, they can be cleaned and reused in the future. There is no concern, as the pancakes will not adhere to the disposable pan and removal is guaranteed to be effortless.

Recipe Tips And Tricks

These pancakes are less complicated to cook than stovetop pancakes because there is no turning or watching anything burn! Still, here are a few pointers that might be useful: Spread your pancake batter evenly in a disposable pan. This will ensure that your pancakes are even! Use 14 cup batter per pancake to ensure that all of the pancakes are the same size.

Lengthen the batter and use up to 12 cup of batter each pancake for thicker pancakes, but increase the cooking time by a few minutes.
I always prepare buttermilk pancakes because I believe they taste the nicest. If you haven’t already tried these, now is the time!

Preheat the oven to 400°F. This is the optimum temperature for me because a lower temperature will not give your pancakes a wonderful golden color. Make sure not to overwork the pancake batter. Pancakes that have been overmixed will be heavy and dense.

Can I Freeze Cooked Pancakes?

Another benefit of these pancakes, other having a superb flavor, is that they are freezable foods! They will be exactly the same and as freshly prepared after defrosting.

Simply layer the pancakes between sheets of parchment paper and place them in an airtight container before placing them in the freezer. When you’re ready to consume them, microwave the pancakes for 30 to 45 minutes.
