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


    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.  -  21 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  16 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
