Air Fryer Dinner Rolls Recipe

The air fryer Rolls are quick and easy to prepare dinner rolls in the air fryer. You’ll adore having warm rolls on the table for supper because they’re made with only a few ingredients.

Almost every meal in my household includes bread. I can bake biscuits or a loaf of bread using this basic recipe. There is no need to wait for the bread to bake in the traditional oven because the air fryer creates them rapidly. I adore being a part of the air fryer trend and have been making everything in an air fryer.


  • 2 tablespoons bread flour
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 120 ml milk (½ cup)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Bread dough
  • 300-gram bread flour (approx 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoon instant yeast (1 packet)


Step 1: Mix the water and bread flour in a small saucepan. 

Using a whisk, swirl until all lumps are gone.

Step 2: Place the saucepan over low heat and whisk continually for 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and becomes glue-like. Set it aside to cool.

Step 3: In a large mixing basin, combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.

Step 4: Using a wooden spoon, whisk together all of the ingredients.

Step 5:Whisk the egg and add 34 tablespoons to the roux in the pot. to make a smooth combination.

Step 6: In a pot or microwave, melt the butter. 

To the flour, add the melted butter, milk, and roux mixture.

Step 7: Knead the ingredients until a smooth, elastic dough that is no longer sticky.

Step 8: For 30 minutes, proof your dough in an Instant Pot set to yogurt with the lid covered.

Step 9: Now, deflate and knead the dough by hand. 

Separate the dough into 7 equal portions.

Step 10: Roll the dough into a rectangle and fold the dough pieces like you would a present.

Step 11:Then roll them into balls and place them in a pizza pan. 

Cover the pan with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set aside for 40 minutes to rise again.

Step 12:Preheat the Air Fryer for 3 minutes at 400°F. 

Brush the buns with the remaining whisked egg.

Step 13: 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown, bake the milk bread. Halfway through the baking period, perform a check.

Step 14: Remove the pan from the Air Fryer and place it on a cooling rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Can you cook a roll in an air fryer?

Air fry the rolls at 320°F for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
Check the bottom of the rolls for doneness as well. If they are not entirely set on the bottom, add a few minutes of cooking time or turn the rolls upside down before adding more cooking time.

Can you put aluminum foil in an air fryer?

Since parchment paper is not a reactive material, it’s your best bet when air-frying these foods since it’s less likely to stick to food compared to aluminum foil.

How long do you heat rolls in air fryer?

You can cook up to four dinner rolls in the air fryer for 8 to 10 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
