Make The Bread-Baking Process Quicker With One Air Fryer Trick
Proofing bread is traditionally done in a warm, draft-free spot, which can take hours. To help the dough rise more efficiently, try proofing it in the air fryer.
An air fryer heats up quickly and evenly, producing consistent warmth that creates an ideal environment for yeast to activate. Its compact size also makes it a convenient option.
After preparing your dough, set your air fryer to the lowest temperature and let the bread proof inside for 30 to 60 minutes depending on your recipe and desired rise.
Some air fryers make it even easier with a pre-set "proof" setting designed to maintain the ideal condition for proofing dough and ensuring consistent warmth.
