Cornbread Baked In Air Fryer

Air fryer cornbread is a delightful twist on a classic favorite. Imagine golden-brown, slightly crispy edges with a soft, moist interior. And making it is so easy! You mix up your cornbread batter with just 3 ingredients: Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, milk, and one egg. Then, instead of baking it in the oven, pop it into your air fryer. The hot air swirling around gives it that lovely texture—crispy outside and fluffy inside—in less time than traditional baking.
