Before you ask, yes you can bake a cake in an air fryer. It is easy, fast and healthy. Well this Air Fryer Chocolate Cake Recipe produces a healthy as a cake can get. Remember to not make it too thick cause it doubles the cooking time. Get a ring tin and use it as a mold for the cake to make it ring shaped to reduce the cooking time. Of course this recipe yields a smaller cake so don’t expect to feed an army with it 🙂
- cooking spray
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon apricot jam
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- salt to taste
Preheat an air fryer to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Spray a small fluted tube pan with cooking spray.
Beat sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add egg and jam; mix until combined. Sift in flour, cocoa powder, and salt; mix thoroughly. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Level the surface of the batter with the back of a spoon.
Place pan in the air fryer basket. Cook until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out cleanly, about 15 minutes.
