The first time I made this, I took the cornbread out to cool, and the center deflated. A friend of mine mentioned leaving the cornbread in the air fryer to cool off, and it will keep that from happening.

How To Store The Air Fryer Cornbread

Store any leftover cornbread in an airtight container or cover with some plastic wrap. It does not have to be refrigerated, but it will keep a couple days longer in the fridge.

Make sure you allow the cornbread to completely cool before placing in an airtight container or you will get condensation.

You can also make dressing around the holidays with leftover cornbread.

Air fryer muffins are always a great side.
