Air Fryer Crusty Rolls

There is nothing quite like freshly baked bread and the air fryer makes baking an absolute breeze. From the perfect hot cross buns to creamy cheesecake, I love turning to my Instant Pot Vortex Plus Versazone air fryer when I need to bake something. The generous basket size means I can bake a big batch of rolls so that we can have leftovers for lunch the next day.

The dough I used is very simple to make and requires no fancy techniques or ingredients. A quick knead followed by an hour long rise and you’re good to go!

Ingredients Needed

  • Flour. All purpose flour/cake flour/plain flour.
  • Instant yeast.
  • Sugar.
  • Salt.
  • Olive oil. Melted butter can be substituted.
  • Warm water.

How to bake bread rolls in the air fryer

  1. Make the dough: Combine the yeast with the warm water and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer and allow to stand for 5 minutes until foamy. Add the remaining ingredients then knead with the dough hook attachment for a few minutes until the dough is soft, pliable and just ever-so-slightly tacky. If the dough is too sticky, add a few more tablespoons of flour and knead in.
  2. Allow to rise: Cover the dough with a damp tea towel then allow to rise in a warm spot for an hour or until doubled in size.
  3. Form the bread rolls: Tip the dough onto a floured surface then divide into 8 equal pieces. Press each dough ball into a rough rectangle then roll into a tight roll. Line your air fryer basket with a piece of parchment paper then add the rolls and allow to proof for another 30 minutes. Brush with egg wash right before baking.
  4. Bake: Place the basket into the air fryer then air fry at 170°C/340°F for 15-20 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from the air fryer and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
