Celebrate this festive season with these Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies! Now, this recipe is certainly not limited to air fryer owners as you will be able to make them using an oven. However, they’ve been optimized for convenience, and without the use of a mixer or other baking-related tools.

This is so that anyone will ultimately be able to make these Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies, and at their convenience in terms of ingredients and equipment!

These Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies are rich and moist on the inside, lightly crisp on the outside, and not at all too sweet! Furthermore, they’re really easy to assemble and goes so well with ice cream.

What inspired these Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies would have definitely been my recent craze with air fryers. They are such a convenient, and useful tool. As a matter of fact, I am sure I can live without a microwave, but not an air fryer!

Furthermore, this also serves as continuation to my previous Air Fryer Marble Cake recipe.

Furthermore, these Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies are so easily customizable. For myself, I added an assortment of lightly roasted nuts for a more festive vibe. I’ve also tried making S’mores versions of these before, using melted marshmallows and topped with biscuits.

Additionally, this recipe makes them in 4 inches (or about 10cm) ramekin dishes for easy eating and gifting. Nonetheless, you should be able to optimize this recipe according to what you have on hand. Here’s a mini guide:

If using 4 inches ramekins (air fryer):

  • 11 – 12 minutes for fudgy center, crisp exterior
  • 13 – 14 minutes for chewier center, crisp exterior

If using bigger tins (air fryer):

  • 15 minutes for fudgy center, 6 inch square or round
  • 17 minutes for fudgy center, 8 inch square or round

If using oven:

  • You will have to x2 the recipe, and it will take about 28 – 32 minutes at 160 degrees C, 8 inch square

I hope this mini guide helps! However, I always suggest and emphasize to test out a small batch first to see if these timings suit your equipment. Ultimately, this is a general guide for you to gauge what works for you :-)!

Without further ado, the recipe!

Air Fryer Fudgy Brownies Recipe
by Javier Tan December-13-2021

This Air Fryer Marble Cake has the same fluffiness and texture as the oven baked version. With the same amazing taste and aroma too!


  • 1/3 Cup or 80g of Unsalted Butter, Melted
  • 2 Eggs, approx. 55g each when weighed with shell
  • 1/2 Teaspoon or 2.5ml Vanilla Essence
  • 50g (Approx. 1/4 Cup) of Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2/3 Cup or 80g of Plain Flour, Sifted
  • 1/3 Cup or 70g of Granulated White Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup or 28g of Cocoa Powder, Sifted
  • 90g (Approx 1/2 Cup) of Assorted Lightly Roasted Nuts


  1. Firstly, melt the unsalted butter and chocolate chips together until it forms a single mixture.
  2. Then, whisk in the vanilla, sugar and two eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the plain flour and cocoa powder.
  4. Next, sift in the flour and cocoa powder mixture, and add in the nuts or other fillings. Fold or whisk them in (do not overmix, stop once the dry ingredients are incorporated).
  5. Subsequently, transfer your batter to 3 ramekins (for adjustments, do read above). If you’re afraid that they might stick, coat with additional unsalted butter or cooking oil.
  6. Heat up your air fryer to 180 degrees C and with a 20 minutes timer.
  7. Bake for about 11 – 13 minutes, or until light brown and crisp on the top.
  8. Remove the ramekins and let cool for about 10 minutes.

  2. Best eaten within 4 days (room temperature). If refrigerated, make sure to take out in advanced before serving as the brownies will harden in the fridge due to the high butter content. Additionally, you might want to re-heat them up at low heat of 140 degrees C and a few minutes.
