Yes, you can make frozen pancakes in your air fryer and they turn out far nicer than in the toaster or microwave!

Nothing beats a quick breakfast done in the air fryer, so try these air fryer toaster strudels, air fryer turkey bacon, or air fryer sausage patties!

How to Cook Frozen Pancakes in the Air Fryer

Whether you have a basket model or a model with the rack like our Vortex Plus, the key to making frozen pancakes in your air fryer is that you don’t cook them at too high of a temperature and that you don’t overcook them!

Thin baked goods like frozen pancakes will dry out too fast if you cook them at too high a temperature, so we found that 300°F in our air fryer yielded hot pancakes that were crispy on the outside slightly but still tender crumbed on the inside!

Cook in a Single Layer

Make sure to cook these in a single layer (a little overlap is ok) as they won’t crisp up and cook properly otherwise.
