AirFried BunsCourse: SidesCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
My first try of AirFried Buns turned out easier than expected. The buns can be enjoyed with any meal and adjusted to any taste.
250 gr Flour
1 tbsp Poppy Seeds (optional)
2 tbsp Dried garlic (optional)
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
180 ml milk
2 packs of active yeast
- Warm the milk up
- Add the brown sugar to the milk
- Once the milk is lukewarm temperature (you can keep your finger in), add the active yeast to it and let it rest 10 minutes
- Mix the flour with the seeds, garlic, salt and 1 egg in a bowl
- Once the yeast has rested, pour the mixture bit by bit in the bowl with flour
- If the mixture seems too liquid, add more flour
- Start mixing and turning until you see it hardening
- Knead for 10 minutes or so until your dough feels like “play dough”
- Brush a bowl with olive oil
- Place the bowl nicely in the bowl and cover with a moist towel (paper towels work as well)
- Let it rest for at least 60 minutes (the dough shall triple its size)
- Form the buns
- Whisk 1 egg and brush the buns with egg wash
- Place the buns in the AirFryer for 15 minutes at 380 F / 190 C
- Check on the buns and flip them for extra 5 minutes
- I personally like my bread garlicky hence I add dry garlic. Feel free to replace with whichever herb you fancy
Most important part about making Airfried Buns
One of the keys to making successful Airfried Buns is the part where you knead the dough. You need to make sure that it really turns into play-dough. I usually count until 100 kneads before I let it rest and raise in an oiled bowl. You can learn more about Kneading at Taste of Home Article – How to know if you are kneading successfully.
Obviously, there is no reason to tell you what dishes the buns go well with. Literary everything…! I cooked it the other day with my Airfried Feta Cheese salad and it was a divine combination. Needless to say, bread goes well with almost any kind of food.
So enjoy and keep your Airfryer on!
