  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Line your baking pan with parchment paper and pour the batter into the pan, spreading it evenly.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 330°F (165°C).
  • Place the baking pan in the air fryer and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.
  • Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before cutting them into squares.
Chefs Tips
  • Consistency is Key: Ensure that the batter is mixed thoroughly for an even texture. Overmixing can make the brownies tough, so mix just until combined.
  • Check for Doneness: Every air fryer can vary slightly in temperature. Start checking the brownies at the 15-minute mark to avoid overcooking.
  • Cooling is Crucial: Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan. This not only makes them easier to cut but also helps them set, ensuring a fudgy texture.
  • Parchment Paper Perfection: Using parchment paper not only prevents sticking but also makes it easier to lift the brownies out of the pan.
  • Size Matters: Ensure your baking pan fits comfortably in your air fryer without touching the sides. This ensures even cooking.
