Box Brownies in the Air Fryer (Fudgy)

I enjoy the taste and texture of the brownie, so if you’re a fan, think about picking up your preferred brand and making it in your air fryer rather than the oven.

Brownies are the ideal snack o enjoy with tea or coffee. In comparison to brownies baked in the oven, air-fried ones have a perfect, fudgy texture. All chocolate lovers should try this simple and delicious dessert.

As with any approach, the outside rim will be more done than the center, but this straightforward recipe yields moist, fudgy, indulgent brownies, making it a great choice for days when you don’t feel like spending the time or effort measuring everything.

Can You Cook a Cake in an Air Fryer?

In the Airfryer, you can use any ovenproof dish or mold, whether made out of glass, ceramic, metal, or silicone.

You can also bake cupcakes, muffins, or tiny gratins in silicone or paper cupcake cups or molds. Preheat the oven to 320°F and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the basket and set the brownie aside for 15 minutes to cool and firm up.

Should I Use Another Egg in My Brownies?

They make brownies lighter, drier, and more cake-like.

If you prefer this over the chewy variety, go ahead and add that extra egg. Too many eggs, on the other hand, will result in hard, heavy, and tough brownies.

Prepare Your Baking Pans With Cooking Spray And Parchment Paper:

  • To get the best brownies, make sure your pans are well prepared.
  • Before inserting the parchment paper, prepare the pan by lightly misting cooking spray on the bottom and the sides.
  • The brownies won’t adhere to the pan’s bottom thanks to the parchment paper. Nothing is worse in the realm of baking than things sticking to pans. Simply pull up on the parchment to quickly remove the brownies from the pan whenever they are ready to be removed.

Do Not Overmix The Brownie Batter

Once you add your dry ingredients to the batter, be careful not to overmix the batter.

There are reasons why this is important:

  1. We don’t want to undo all the lovely structure that was produced by beating the eggs and sugar. Your brownies might not rise well in the oven if you overmix the mixture.
  2. An overly-mixed texture may become hard and chewy. The gluten in the flour forms during excessive mixing, giving the dough a gummy feel.

What Pans Can Go In The Air Fryer For Baking?

Baking requires a pan with proper depth

Baking requires a proper pan, which must have the proper depth. This time, however, a 7.5-inch springform pan will do. If your pan has a comparatively larger size then it may require less time because of the thin batter.

The pan I own is the USA Pan Bakeware 8-inch Square Bake Pan. It’s of excellent quality and endures nicely. It releases quickly and is nonstick.


Here are some easy ways to jazz up your brownie boxed mix.

  • Mix in some candy bar pieces: Snickers, Kit-Kats, and M&M are my favorites.
  • Substitute brewed coffee: Because coffee and chocolate have similar flavor qualities, they complement one another quite well. A darker, deeper flavor occurs from replacing the water with coffee. In addition, you can use milk or cream in place of water.
  • Add instant espresso: Like brewed coffee, instant espresso adds up the chocolate flavor as well.
  • Include extra chocolate: For the ultimate chocolate experience, add semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips.
  • Add chopped nuts: In addition to giving brownies an additional nutty flavor, nuts give a lovely texture element. Add nuts such as cocoa nibs, walnuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts, or macadamia nuts. To make eating them easier, make sure to slice them.

What Can Be Served With Brownies?

Brownies are best when serve warm or at room temperature. Brownies can be served with;

  • Ice cream: A warm brownie and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream are the sweetest combinations.
  • Whipped cream: One of my favorite things is a scoop of freshly prepared whipped cream. Indulge the fork first, then add a cherry to the top.
  • Top sauce over brownies: Melt some hot fudge, caramel, or even butterscotch and drizzle it over your baked goods.
  • A little coating of powdered sugar is the best topping for brownies.

Is It Okay To Substitute Butter Instead Of Oil For Making Brownies?

Yes, you can replace 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup of butter by using the same amount of both.

Anytime butter is a choice, I’ll take it. These brownies have a deep, creamy flavor thanks to the melted butter.

Use only unsalted butter, please. Additionally, be sure to use molten butter rather than softened.

What Is Another Alternative For Eggs When It Comes To Preparing Brownies?

Applesauce without sugar would be the simplest substitution if you have an allergy to eggs.

  • Replace each egg with 1/4 cup of fruit. Pick from unsweetened applesauce, mashed bananas, softened dates, and pureed prunes.
  • Substitute each egg with 1/4 cup of buttermilk or yogurt. The brownies will become sufficiently airy and moist as a result of this.
  • To substitute an egg in your brownie batter, you can use almond, cashew, or peanut butter.

Do Brownies Freeze Well?

Brownies are among those desserts that freeze well.

Just give your brownies some time to cool once you remove them from the oven. After cutting it, you should put it in an airtight container, and then you can freeze it for up to three months.

Anytime you get a craving, defrost on the counter and devour a brownie. The shelf life can be increased even more if you have a vacuum sealer.

How Do You Make Brownies Fudgy?

The brownies will be fudgier if there is additional fat in the mixture. This recipe calls for a lot of melted butter and egg yolks because of this.

The brownies bake evenly over the tray when baked at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. The brownies cook evenly and maintain their fudgy texture because of all the fat in this recipe.

Why Is The Brownie Sometimes Not Moist?

The moisture content of a cake is determined by the ratio of wet to dry ingredients.

A cake will taste dry if there is too much flour and not enough butter. A cake will taste excessively wet if there is too much milk and less flour.

Therefore, a proper balance of wet and dry ingredients is required to make a perfectly-textured fudgy brownie.

Final thoughts:

  • Brownies are an ideal tea-time snack and are best when serve warm or at room temperature.
  • In comparison to brownies baked in the oven, air-fried ones have a perfect, fudgy texture.
  • The brownies bake evenly over the tray when baked at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Do not overmix the brownie batter as its texture may become hard.
  • To substitute an egg in your brownie batter, you can use almond, cashew, or peanut butter.
