Recipe Tips

  • Make sure your baking dish will fit into the air fryer. I had to use a round cake tin.
  • If your brownie is starting to burn on top, cover it with aluminum foil. The foil will prevent the top from overcooking while allowing the brownie to cook correctly.
  • I found the baking parchment around the sides of the cake tin easily gets blown into the brownie mixture while cooking. Try to keep the baking parchment as minimal as possible, or simply do not place it around the sides of the tin.
  • The cake skewer will likely never come out clean, so aim for moist crumbs and no wet batter.
  • You can serve the brownie before it cools completely, but it may fall apart and not keep its shape.
  • Almond flour is also known as almond meal or ground almonds.
