Air Fryer Cake Recipe

This Air Fryer Cake recipe is a quick and delicious way to fulfill those crazy cake cravings when you donot have any at home nor have the inkling to go bake a big one in an oven 😉

I’m sure a lot of you would agree that such cravings end up either 12 at night or at the laziest or weirdest time and this recipe is literally my goto – Did I say I looooove my Air Fryer!!!

Also, I found these cute 4inch aluminum quiche pan a few months back and the cake is an easy breeze ever since.

So much so, that it’s one of our guilty food during late-night movies.

What Do You Need to Make Air Fryer Cake from Scratch?

This particular cake is made using extremely basic (everyone’s kitchen pantry) ingredients like:

  • All-Purpose Cake Flour
  • Milk
  • Oil
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Baking Soda
  • Cocoa Powder – optional
  • Vanilla Extract – optional

I’m using some slivered/chopped almonds on top but that is completely optional.

Also, if you donot have cocoa powder or vanilla extract, that’s also not a problem, simply skip those ingredients.

You can use instant coffee powder too to flavor the cake.

How To Make The Cake:

Unlike lengthy cake process, this cake is extremely quick and you just need a bowl and small whisk/fork to whip up the ingredients.

  1. As always, we start by whisking wet ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Then add dry ingredients and whisk everything. Just make sure there are no lumps.
  3. Then we pour the batter in our cake pan and carefully place the pan in a pre-heated air-fryer.
  4. Air Fry for 10 minutes at 190C and then we cool the cake completely.
  5. That’s it, the cake is ready and dig in 🙂

Tips for a Perfect Cake:

Always Pre-Heat the Air Fryer before making the sake as it helps in even baking.

Always Cool the Cake Completely before eating.

You Can use pre-package Cake Mug Mix and use the same baking timings.

Air Fryer Cake Pan?
I always recommend using an oven-safe dish in the air fryer as the temperatures are very similar to both. You can use pyrex, aluminum or even regular baking dishes.

Air Fryer Cake Time / Temperature?
This varies slightly as each air fryer has a different baking/cooking mode. Hence I always use a manual setting for cakes.

Serving Suggestion:

  1. You can serve this cake as is.
  2. You can add fresh strawberries on top and serve the cake.
  3. You can ice the cake using buttercream or any other frosting of choice.
  4. You can simply drizzle chocolate sauce or even nutella on the cake and serve (my fav topping)

With these tips and this easy recipe, I hope you make this asap and win over those cake cravings 🙂
