How long do I cook a Toaster Strudel in an air fryer?

Cooking time may vary for different brands of an air fryer. Each brand of air fryer can give different cooking results. That’s why you need to pay close attention when heating up the toaster strudel. It’s best to check the pastry’s doneness after 4 minutes of cooking. After that, you can cook it longer to achieve the crispness and doneness desired. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the pastries if it’s the first time you cook them.

Nevertheless, cooking time for all types of toaster strudel is the same. This is because the consistency and the structure of the pastries are similar. That’s why if you already find a perfect cooking time for one type of toaster strudel, you can also apply it to other types.

Never cook too many toaster strudel in the air fryer simultaneously. Overcrowding your air fryer basket will not only increase the air frying time but can also lead to soft and unevenly cooked toaster strudels.

Tips for cooking perfect Toaster strudel air fryer

Through the instructions above, you already know that air frying toaster strudel is as easy as one, two, or three. Nonetheless, there are some useful tips that you might want to take to heart when cooking these frozen pastries:

  • The temperature control settings are different for each model and each brand of air fryer. That’s why the actual cooking time might not be the same as we suggested in our instructions.
  • Sometimes the air fryer you’re using doesn’t come with the exact same temperature settings required in the recipe. In this case, you should check out the manual instructions that come with the device.
  • Our recipe for toaster strudel doesn’t require preheating the air fryer. Simply set the heating temperature and the time, then press start.
  • If you opt for preheating your air fryer before putting in the toaster strudel, don’t preheat with only the parchment paper laying inside the air fryer basket, as the paper will burn easily.
  • Check if the filling is actually heated through or not before eating. No one enjoys cold and frozen filling, right?
  • For the leftovers of toaster strudel, we recommend keeping them in an airtight container and storing them in the fridge.
  • Never add frosting onto the toaster strudel leftover, as it will make the exterior soft and less appealing.
