Preparation Phase & Tools to Use

Before you start, ensure you have all the necessary tools for a seamless baking process. You will need four small oven-safe ramekins, a mixing bowl, a spatula, and an air fryer. Proper preparation of your tools enhances the overall baking experience and ensures perfect results.

Ingredients List

For the Brownies:

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour, sifted (see notes for gluten-free option)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or a brown sugar substitute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oil, any neutral-flavored oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or more oil)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate, chopped

Step-by-Step Instructions for Air Fryer Brownies

Preheat and Prep:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 180C/350F.
  2. Grease 4 small oven-safe ramekins. This prevents the brownies from sticking and makes for easy cleanup.

Prepare the Brownie Batter:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add the oil, applesauce, water, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until a thick brownie batter forms.
  3. Fold in the chopped chocolate until evenly distributed.

Air Fry the Brownies:

  1. Evenly distribute the brownie batter among the prepared ramekins.
  2. Place the ramekins in the air fryer basket.
  3. Air fry the brownies for 4-5 minutes, or until the tops of the brownies are mostly set.

Cool and Enjoy:

  1. Remove the brownies from the air fryer and let them cool slightly before enjoying.

Common Mistakes to Avoid & How to Perfect the Recipe

Avoid Overmixing:

Overmixing the batter can lead to dense and heavy brownies. Mix just until the ingredients are combined for a light and gooey texture.

Proper Cooling:

Allow the brownies to cool slightly before serving to enhance their fudgy texture.

Tips, Notes, Storing, and Reheating

Extra Flavor:

For an extra burst of flavor, add a teaspoon of espresso powder to the batter.

Storing:

Store any leftover brownies at room temperature, covered, for up to three days. For longer storage, keep them in the refrigerator.

Freezing:

Remove the brownies from the ramekins and place them in a ziplock bag. Store them in the freezer for up to two months.

Reheating:

To reheat, simply microwave individual brownies for a few seconds or warm them in the air fryer at a low temperature.
