Butter Cake (Air Fried)

    30 minutes

    This is a basic butter cake, the trickiest bit was finding a cake tin to fit in the AirFryer, I went with a ring tin which works really well and makes it cook even quicker.

    Serves: 2 

    • 100g butter, at room temperature
    • 80g caster sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 200g plain flour
    • pinch salt, to taste
    • 6 tablespoons milk
    • icing sugar, to present

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat the airfryer to 180 degrees C. Spray a small ring cake tin with a non-stick spray.
    2. In a bowl beat the butter with the sugar until light and creamy. Add the egg then whisk into the butter mixture until smooth and fluffy.
    3. Sift in the flour and salt, then mix thoroughly with the milk to create the cake batter.
    4. Transfer the batter to the ring tin and use the back of a spoon to level the surface. Put the cake tin in the air fryer basket.
    5. Set the timer to 15 minutes and bake the cake until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out cleanly.
    6. Turn cake out of cake tin and allow to cool.

    Cook in an oven

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

    Surprisingly buttery and moist for being cooked in an Airfryer.  -  03 Mar 2015


    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.  -  21 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
