      Hi there! If you’re using the air fryer you will just place the batter into the air fryer on the parchment paper. If you are baking it in the oven you will use a 9×5 pan or cupcake pan to bake.

  2. Hi Liz: I’m confused about the “spoon half of the mixture into the air fryer.” What do you do with the second half, or when do you add it? Or do you air-fry it in two batches?
