Pro Tips

Choosing a proper pan for the Air Fryer is a must. I use an 8in spring form pan. A Bunt Pan also works really well because of the hole in the center of the pan. You do not want a pan that is filled to the top with batter or it will never cook all the way through. 

How to make Air Fryer Cornbread

Preheat Air Fryer to 310 degrees for 5 minutes.

In a mixing bowl combine dry ingredients, Jiffy Cornbread Mix with egg and milk. I also like to add whole kernel corn. It gives wonderful texture to a cornbread recipe. Mix everything together and put my prepared mix into a greased baking pan.

Air Fry for 14-15 minutes. Baking time can vary depending on pan size and thickness. Always make sure a toothpick comes out clean. Add additional time as needed.

Melt 1-2 Tablespoons butter over hot cornbread. The melted butter will absorb into the hot bread recipe and will be delicious.

Making Cornbread in Air Fryer is just that simple. It only takes 90 seconds or less to mix up and throw into the Air Fryer. There is really no reason to forget a side dish with dinner when you have a recipe like this one.

I love to serve cornbread with Baked Beans, Taco Salad, or even an afternoon snack!  It’s a quick and easy LESS THAN 30 minute recipe for Air Fryer cornbread Recipe

Supplies Needed

Air Fryer – I love my Cosori Air Fryer. It’s user friendly and has a large basket

Pan – Use a pan that fits into the air fryer. I used an 8inch springform pan. A 6inch springform pan will also work. Try a Bundt Pan, Bundt Pans work very well in the Air Fryer because there is a hole in the center of the pan which helps the cooking process to cook more evenly.

Mixing Bowl – I love my Glass Pyrex mixing bowls

Silicone Muffin Liners – Optional. Just another way to bake Cornbread in Air Fryer.

How to Store Cornbread Recipe

Cornbread is considered a quick bread recipe where it doesn’t require yeast or the need to be kneaded. It’s often associated with southern states and fried cuisine. Cornbread also has Native American origins.

Pancakes made with cornmeal were a staple food of the Hopi people in Arizona. I love the texture cornmeal brings to a recipe.

Fun Fact

In 2020 Iowa produced 2.3 Billion bushels of corn being the leading state to grow corn. That’s a lot of corn. Illinois comes in a close second with 2.1 Million bushels.

Is a Johnny Cake the same as Cornbread?

Although similar they are not the same. A Johnny Cake is a flat pancake made of cornmeal typically made without eggs or milk. They are delicious and often served in southern states in place of a roll.

Like many classic recipes, Cornbread became widely popular during war time when ingredients and circumstances didn’t allow for more elaborate recipes. I have found that many classic recipes are still family favorites today.

Johnny Cakes are often referred to as Hoe Cakes. Hoe Cakes got their names from how they are cooked on the flat end of a Hoe over a fire.

Some of our favorite classic recipes are American Goulash, Tuna Casserole, Chicken Divan and Instant Pot Swiss Steak. All family friendly recipes and so easy to make.
