This is a basic butter cake; the trickiest bit was finding a cake tin to fit in the air fryer. I went with a ring tin, which works really well and makes it cook even quicker. Top with confectioners' sugar.

  • Beat butter and 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add egg and mix until smooth and fluffy. Stir in flour and salt. Add milk and mix batter thoroughly. Transfer batter to the prepared pan; use the back of a spoon to level the surface.

  • Place the pan in the air fryer basket. Set the timer for 15 minutes. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

  • Turn cake out of pan and allow to cool, about 5 minutes.

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.

The recipe calls for 1/4 c 2 T sugar but then says "butter" with the same measurements. I figured it meant the sugar. I made it with almond milk since it was what I had on hand and added a touch of vanilla. It turned out nice and dense. Will make again. Read More

So which one of those pictures is the actual cake? The burnt is what caught my attention; but that other one doesn’t look very appetizing. Read More

Really easy to make with a nice consistency but it lacks some flavor. I made it three times the first as written and then once with added vanilla and once with almond extract. The latter was the better of the three attempts. Will continue to experiment with it. Read More

It turned out ok. I added a teaspoon of vanilla since I saw no flavoring. While I do have a cake pan for my air fryer I chose to divide the batter into 3 ramekins and cooked them about 10 minutes instead. They were very brown on top and not brown at all on the bottom. I flipped them out of the ramekins and cooked 5 more minutes to brown the bottoms. The insides were a little gummy. I think if I tweak the amount of time they are cooked I may be able to get rid of the gumminess. I will be trying again. Read More

This was a horrible recipe. It turned out like a very sweet biscuit. Crumbly in texture. Cooked it for 30 min. And had to cut in half to get it finished. No flavor and a crumbly waste of time. Read More

There seem to be errors in this recipe, particularly regarding the butter. I’d love to see a corrected copy. Read More

Just got this out of the oven and I was very disappointed. I had my doubts while I was making it because the consistency was more like cookie dough in spite of adding 2 more tablespoons of milk.. It needs some tweeking; maybe another egg I don't know. I added some Watkins butter flavor and vanilla because it didn't have any flavoring in the recipe and thought it would be bland. I cooked it in my AirFryer/Oven for the recommended time but it came out gummy and I don't think it needs to cook longer. I love the idea so I will be experimenting. Read More
