How to make a cake in the Air fryer
Test #2 experiment in my new Air fryer!
Today I am going to share how to make a cake in the Air fryer. I learned a few things a long the way and I won’t say I mastered it the first time. The cake in the end did turn out amazingly delicious, but I had to tweak the process as I went a long. You can learn from my mistakes.
All you need for this recipe is a cake mix, some pie filling of choice, I used peach, and optional walnuts and a little brown sugar topping.
This is what my cake looked like after cooling and flipping over on plate. It definitely looks more oven baked opposed to the Instant Pot cake making method.
So how about the deets now?! What I initially did wrong, ONE, I should have preheated the AF before I just put my cake in. TWO, I set the temperature too high. I quickly realized when there was a smoke steam coming out the back vent. I quickly turned it down to 330 degrees and added a tad of water to the basket of the fryer. You can actually see a little darker edges on the bottom. It was about 1 minute shy of burning. All due to higher temperature.
