Chocolate and Walnut cake - Air fryer

Updated: Nov 12, 2022

You will need a 20cm solid base cake tin, greased well with softened butter. The air fryer accessory tin with handle is ideal. Serves 8, delicious cake with crème fraiche, or cream.

The cake keeps well, in an air-tight tin, in a cool place for up to 4 days.


75g self-raising flour

25g cocoa powder

½ Tsp baking powder

2 large eggs

1 Tbsp. milk

100g softened butter

100g golden caster sugar

60g roasted walnuts, see intro

20g dark chocolate, roughly chopped, I like Bourneville


1. In a large size mixing bowl, sieve the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder together. Add butter, caster sugar, eggs, and milk, to the bowl.

2. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat ingredients together, to combine. Continue to beat for 1 minute, until light and fluffy.

3. Fold in all but 1 tablespoon of the chopped walnuts.

4. Turn mixture into prepared tin. Level surface. Top with remaining nuts and the chopped chocolate, sprinkling them evenly over. Carefully put tin into air-fryer basket.

5. Air-fry at 150C for 25 minutes, until risen and golden on top. Remove from air-fryer and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, before turning out onto cooling rack.

6. Eat warm, or leave to cool completely and serve cold.

7. Enjoy with cream or crème fraiche.
