The versatility of my air fryer continues to impress me. After the success of making some banana bread in it, I decided to test out our favourite carrot cake recipe.
For this recipe, you will either need an air fryer accessory cake tin or find a suitable oven-safe dish that will fit in your air fryer. I use the baking tin from this set;
It really is a great set that has allowed me to make pizzas, quiches, kebabs – as well as fitting a lot more in my air fryer!

You can pretty much adapt any cake recipe to make in the air fryer, just remember to check if you need to reduce the volumes to fit. I usually cook my cakes at 175C, and for this carrot cake, I left it to cook for 30 minutes (I checked on it at 20 minutes to make sure it wasn’t overcooking).
Side Note: You can also cover the baking tin with some foil and poke some holes in it to prevent the top from burning or cooking too fast.
I love that I can make a cake in the air fryer and not heat up the whole kitchen because I need the oven on. It’s so simple.
