Round Lemon Drizzle Cake
I love recipe requests that we get on Recipe This. Its nice to see what our readers want to make with their kitchen gadgets and lets me try something new along the way. That’s how our instant pot swiss steak, air fryer doughnuts, bread machine pizza dough and our soup maker French onion soup became a thing.
So, when a regular reader of ours from England asked us to make a Mary Berry Lemon Drizzle Cake and adapted it to the air fryer we were up for the challenge and looking forward to it.
After all, we love an air fryer cake and adapting it with the times and temperatures that are needed to cook it perfectly in the air fryer.
But that is not the only thing you need to adapt when cooking cakes in the air fryer. Another big part of it is finding a way for it to fit in the air fryer. After all, if you have an air fryer basket, its not your standard cake size.
Grease a 20cm round cake pan. Line base with baking paper.
Use electric beaters to beat the butter , sugar , flour , eggs , lemon rind and juice for 3-4 minutes or until pale and creamy. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Smooth surface.
Place the pan in the basket of the air fryer. Set the air fryer to 160C. Bake for 25 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean (see tip). Set aside for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
Serve the cake warm or at room temperature.
