Test #2 experiment in my new air fryer, How to make a cake!

How to bake a cake in an Air Fryer

Today I am going to share how to make a cake in the air fryer. I learned a few things along 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 along. 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.

And of course the Insta-Pan HERE


The Insta-Pan Fits in the Air Fryer

When I found out our Insta-Pan was the perfect fit in the Air fryer it was a game-changer for me. My meatloaf turned out amazing. You can check out this recipe for Meatloaf in the Air fryer.

This is what my cake looked like after cooling and flipping over on a plate. It definitely looks more oven-baked as opposed to the Instant Pot cake making method.

So how about the details now?!

What I Initially Did Wrong

First, I should have preheated the air fryer before I just put my cake in. Second, I set the temperature too high. I quickly realized when there was smoke coming out the back vent. I 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 of the cake above. It was about 1 minute shy of burning. All due to the higher temperature.

NOTE: When baking in the air fryer it is best to use a bundt pan due to the cone in the center. A lot of users have issues when using a regular pan with the center not being cooked all the way through. The bundt pan solves that issue.
