Chocolate Cake in an Air Fryer


This is a chocolate cake I make in my air fryer, I like to use a ring tin as it makes the cooking time even shorter, perfect for a couple or small family. Top with icing sugar.

1 small cake


  • cooking spray

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 3 ½ tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Spray a small fluted tube pan with cooking spray.

  2. 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.

  3. Place pan in the air fryer basket. Cook until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out cleanly, about 15 minutes.
