Fragrant sourdough bread made in an air fryer. This method is perfect for the hot months when you don't want to heat up the kitchen but still want fresh homemade sourdough. The bread should be stored wrapped in a clean cloth inside a plastic bag. It will keep for about 3 days.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine bread flour, spelt flour, sourdough starter, oil, and salt in the bowl of stand mixer. Begin to knead using the dough hook. Add water until all the ingredients combine and begin to pull together; you may not need all the water. Knead on low speed for 5 minutes.

  • Fold the dough into a ball. Place inside an air fryer-safe baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to double in volume, 5 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove the plastic wrap and score the loaf.

  • Place the baking dish in the air fryer and cook until loaf is browned, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 190 degrees F (88 degrees C). Allow to cool before slicing.

I do not have a very large air fryer and don't believe I got enough circulation as the top was extremely dark while the lower half of the loaf was barely baked. Next time I plan to use an oiled parchment sling in the baking dish so I can remove the loaf from the baking dish part way through baking and get better circulation. Did get a very nice rise on the loaf and would like to perfect a smaller loaf that will not spoil before eaten in this humid weather. Read More
