Vortex Plus Perfect Boxed Brownies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It can be difficult to convert baked goods traditionally cooked in the oven, to work in the air fryer. Often times the top will get burnt and the inside is way underdone. If you follow my tips below, you will get perfect fudgy brownies with a crisp edge and cooked all the way through.

Vortex Plus Perfect Boxed Brownies

Recipe by Lana Horruitiner-Perez

  • Box Brownie Mix (use your favorite brand. For this recipe I used Betty Crocker Supreme Walnut)
  • Ingredients listed on the package of mix you are using.

Equipment: 8×8 metal pan

Grease your 8×8 metal pan and set aside. (I like to use PAM cooking spray, but your can grease it with a light coating of vegetable oil.)

Prepare the Brownie Mix according the package direction. Pour into the prepared baking pan.

Take out the drip tray on the bottom of the Vortex Plus and place the slotted baking tray upside down on the bottom of the Vortex Plus oven.


Press the “AIRFRY” mode on the Vortex Plus. Set the temperature to 295 degrees and the time to 30 -35 mins. Press “START”.

Once the Vortex Plus displays “ADD FOOD”, place the brownies in the oven on the tray and close the door. The Vortex Plus will automatically start cooking.

Once the Vortex Plus is done cooking, it will display “COOL” and then “OFF”. Take the pan of brownies out and allow to cool on a baking rack for about 10 mins.


Serve warm.

Buen Provecho!

Your brownies look awesome. Where did you purchase your pan? I don’t find any on Amazon that are deep like yours. Thank you much!


I saw these pans today, one the Cephalon and one a similar model (can’t remember the brand), at my local TJ Maxx (not Homegoods).



Can we use a glass pan?


Do we bake cakes the same way, using the round pans or a small square pan (I would have to bake a few pans)?

Would these same steps apply to the Omni Plus?

I followed your directions + baked for an additional 12 minutes & the bottom half is total goo. Nothing that I’ve attempted has baked thoroughly. What could I be doing wrong or is the oven not heating to the correct temp?
