  • Beat sugar and butter together together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Combine banana, egg, and honey in a separate bowl. Whisk banana mixture into butter mixture until smooth.

  • Sift flour, cinnamon, and salt into the combined banana-butter mixture. Mix batter until smooth. Transfer to the prepared pan; level the surface using the back of a spoon.

  • Place the cake pan in the air fryer basket. Slide the basket into the air fryer and set the timer for 30 minutes. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have an air fryer, this recipe works well in a toaster oven or normal oven. Add 5 minutes to the cook time.

This recipe worked very well in the air fryer. The cake came out moist and fluffy. I would maybe omit the salt if you're using salted butter. It had just a touch too much salt after adding the pinch. We cooked this in an air fryer cake pan which was the perfect size. Read More

I think this might have been a really good cake but it was overcooked at 30 minutes. Turned out very dry. Was the perfect size, however, had it not been so overbaked. Will try again and check after 20 minutes. Or I may just bake it my toaster oven. Read More

I noticed there was NO leveling agent (i.e.: baking soda). My cake was flat and took 45 min in air fryer and still gummy. I'm trying to like my fryer but this recipe isn't helping. Read More

Love this quick little cake however for my air fryer I don’t cook it near as long so check it along the way and if it seems cooked way early, it is.... also I used the round air fryer pan that came with mine.... one other thing is that you have to be sure and use self rising flour... turns out good if you don’t over cook!
