Did you ever think you could make cream of wheat do this?? Crazy beautiful, absolutely delicious, vegetarian, and simple. Air Fryer Fruit Cake looks gorgeous and is moist and delicious.
▢ 1 cup (150 g) Dried Fruit
▢ 2 cups (500 g) hot water
▢ 1 cup (173 g) fine farina or rava/sooji, or cream of wheat, milled fine
▢ 1 cup (244 ml) Whole Milk
▢ 1 cup (200 g) Sugar Or Other Sweetener Equivalent
▢ 1/4 cup (54.5 g) Ghee or Oil
▢ 1/4 cup (57.5 g) sour cream , or plain yogurt
▢ 1 tsp (1 tsp) Ground Cardamom
▢ 1 tsp (1 tsp) Baking Powder
▢ 1/2 tsp (0.5 tsp) Baking Soda
Soak the dried fruit in hot water and set aside to plump up.
Grease an 8 inch heat-safe baking pan and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl whisk together the farina, milk, sugar, ghee, sour cream, and cardamom.
Set this aside for 20 minutes to allow the farina to soften and absorb some of the liquid.
Drain the dried fruit very well, and mix it with the batter.
Add the baking powder and baking soda and mix well.
Pour the cake mix into the greased pan and set the pan in the air fryer basket.
Set your air fryer to 330F for 25 minutes.
At the end of the cook time, insert a toothpick to check for doneness. When the toothpick emerges clean, remove the pan and let it rest for 10 minutes before unmolding the cake.

Tips And Tricks
Okay people, come listen and learn from my mistakes. I had to make this recipe three times before I got it right. Either that or you will have a cake that’s more like a brick than a cake which is exactly how my first two attempts turned out. Done right, however, you’ll have a moist, delicious little slice of heaven in each cake, with a crispy outside and a tender inside.
