  • 2 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled

  • cooking spray


  • Get out and measure your ingredients.
  • Preheat air fryer to 325 degrees F.

Pancake Muffins

  • Fill baking cups just over ⅔ of the way full. Place in air fryer basket in batches (I did 4 at a time).
  • Cook for 7-8 minutes or until browned on top.
  • Remove your pancake muffins from the air fryer.
  • Place your air fryer pancake muffins on a plate and top with your favorite toppings.
  • Serve and Enjoy every bite.

Flat Pancakes

  • Prepare your 5 to 7 inch cake cake pan with cooking spray.
  • Add spoonful's of batter to your prepared cake pan until batter is half way full.
  • Place inside your air fryer.
  • Set your air fryer temperature to 325 degrees and preheat your air fryer.
  • Set your timer for 5 to 6 minutes, with 5 inch pan, around 8 minutes for each 6 inch pan, or if using a 7 inch cake pan set tier for 10 minutes, removing after each is cooked.
  • Place on serving plate and serve or set aside.
  • Make a stack, if desired.
  • Add berries, bananas, chocolate chips, butter, peanut butter, nutella or powdered sugar.
  • Add maple syrup.
  • OR Serve with our homemade pecan butter and butter pecan syrup.
  • Enjoy every bite!


  • Do not overcrowd your air fryer. Your pancakes will not cook well if they are overcrowded. No more than four muffins per batch.
  • Make sure that your ingredients are room temperature before starting to make your pancakes. 
  • Cook times can vary based on the brands of air fryers. Your pancake muffins may need a little more cooking time or a little less. Keep an eye on your pancake muffins for the last two or three minutes of your cook time.
