Air Fryer Rolls

Makes: 12 Air Fryer Rolls Oven: 180 °C / 350 °F
Preparation Time: 1 hour 40 minutes Baking Time: 15 – 20 minutes.


420 g Cake flour ( 3 x 250 ml + 1 x 125 ml / 3½ cups )
5 ml Salt ( 1 tsp )
45 ml Sugar ( 3 Tbsp )
60 g Margarine/Butter
10 g Anchor Instant Yeast ( 1 packet )
125 ml Warm milk ( ½ cup )
80 ml Lukewarm water ( 1⅓ cup )
30 ml Olive oil ( 1 Tbsp )
1 Large egg
20 ml Milk, to brush ( 2 tsp )
Sesame and Poppy Seeds, to sprinkle
20 ml Melted butter, to brush


  1. Combine the flour, salt and sugar together in a bowl. Rub the margarine/butter into the flour mixture. Add the Anchor Instant Yeast and mix.
  2. Mix the warm milk, lukewarm water, olive oil and egg together. Beat with a fork to break up the egg. Allow to cool down to lukewarm.
  3. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and work together to form a soft ball of dough.
  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  5. Transfer the dough into a greased bowl that will fit into the Air Fryer and cover with a plate.
  6. Set the Air Fryer on 70 °C for 5 minutes to warm the oven. Switch the Air Fryer off, place the bowl with the dough into the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  7. Knock the dough down and roll into a roll. Divide into 13 even pieces. Roll each ball into a round and place into a round dish/foil pan. Place 10 balls around the side and 3 in the middle to form a clover leaf.
  8. Cover with greased plastic and allow to rise in a warm place to rise until double in volume, about 20– 30 minutes. Brush with milk and sprinkle with Sesame and Poppy seeds.
  9. Bake in the Air Fryer at 180 °C for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown. If the rolls become too brown, place a piece of foil on top.
  10. Remove from the oven and brush the hot rolls with melted butter. Place onto a cooling rack.
