Easy UK air fryer cake recipes

There are millions of cake recipes out there on the internet. But a surprising lack of air fryer cake recipes with UK measurements and temperatures!

I find it SO frustrating when I search for a recipe, and finally find one that catches my eye – only to discover it’s in US cups.

When I type ‘air fryer cake recipes‘ into Google, it suggests adding ‘UK‘ after it. And this can only mean one thing… YOU’RE frustrated by it too!!

Can you really bake in an air fryer?

Absolutely! Air fryers are essentially mini fan ovens. And you can bake a cake in a fan oven right? So it goes without saying, that you can bake a cake in an air fryer!

When most people think of air fryer recipes, they think of savoury snacks or meals. But actually, you can make a multitude of sweet treats in your air fryer, not just cake!

You can make air fryer cookies or even Creme Egg croissants! The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination.

Can you use a normal cake tin in an air fryer?

Yes, you can use a normal cake tin in an air fryer. The only catch is you probably need smaller ones that will fit. Air fryers are much smaller than ovens, so you’ll need to consider this when choosing yours. Make sure you measure your air fryer drawer(s) before you buy, so you’re not wasting any money.

I use these fabulous little 6″ cake tins (affiliate link) from Amazon. They fit perfectly in my Ninja air fryer dual drawers.
