Baked Apple in Airfryer: A New Family Favorite

Air fryer baked apples have become a real family favorite for us. The liquid from the apples caramelizes beautifully in the air fryer, and the aroma alone is irresistible.

We quickly pop them into the air fryer basket, set the timer, and in half an hour, this divine, heartwarming dessert is ready. For a special touch, sprinkle some cinnamon or cinnamon sugar on top.

It’s not only simple but also energy-efficient.

If you have an airfryer at home, I highly recommend trying this recipe and baking apples in it.

It’s a divine, quick-to-make, budget-friendly dessert, or it can even be a side dish for dinner or lunch.

  • 4 apples
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon


  • Roasting apples in an air fryer requires no special preparation. Just wash them and put them in the air fryer. Add a little water underneath so that the water doesn't come up on the grid.

  • After 25 minutes, it's worth checking the apples by opening the air fryer. Depending on the type and size, this may be enough time for them to soften. Test with a needle, and if you feel the apples are still a little hard, put them back for 5 minutes. After 30 minutes, the baked apples are done.

  • If you like cinnamon, sprinkle a little cinnamon or cinnamon sugar on top. There you go—baked apples in an air fryer are as delicious, if not more so, than the classic oven-baked version.
