How To Prepare Vanilla Cake Recipe Air Fryer?

Preparation Time: 25 minutes

Cooking Time: 90 minutes

Serving Size: 5 people


  • oven,
  • large mixing bowl,
  • kitchen scale,
  • glass measuring cup,
  • stainless steel or tempered pots and pans,
  • baking rack


  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • 6 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Step 1: Measure out the butter into a bowl and set aside.

Step 2: Use the kitchen scale to weigh  6 eggs and add them to the mixing bowl.

Step 3: Measure 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract into a glass measuring cup and set aside.

Step 4: Add one cup of granulated sugar to the eggs in the mixing bowl, and combine well with a fork until there are no more lumps. Then set this mixture aside.

Step 5: Heat a stainless steel pot to melt the butter over medium heat. Let it bubble for about 1 minute, and then take it out of the heat.

Step 6: Attach the air fryer basket to the machine, and spread half of the melted butter evenly.

Step 7: Add one cup of cake flour evenly into the air fryer basket, then repeat step 6 with another half cup of cake flour.

Step 8: In the mixing bowl, add the cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Whisk these ingredients together until they are well combined.

Step 9: Add vanilla extract to the sugar and egg mixture. Whisk them until they are well combined.

Step 10: Pour the sugar and egg mixture into the air fryer basket, then place it in the air fryer on a baking rack. This will prevent the bottom of your cake from getting soggy from all the butter in it. Freeze the cake for 20 minutes to allow it to get freezing and set.

Step 11: After 20 minutes, use the oven’s cooling feature to stop the heating element from cooking your cake. Leave your cake in the oven on a wire rack for 40 minutes or until it rises.

Step 12: Increase your oven temperature to 350°F. Remove your cake from the oven, and let it cool completely before icing it with anything.

Step 13: A delicious cake is ready to be served.
