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
140g Soft brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 orange, zest & juice
200g self-raising flour
1tsp ground cinnamon
175g grated carrot, (approx 2 medium carrots)
Preheat air fryer to 175C.
In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Slowly add the beaten eggs.
Fold in the flour, a little bit at a time, mixing it as you go. Add the orange juice and zest, grated carrots and sultanas. Gently mix all the ingredients together.
Grease the baking tin and pour the mixture in.
Place baking tin in the air fryer basket and cook for 25-30 minutes. Check and see if the cake has cooked – use a cocktail stick or metal skewer to poke in the middle. If it comes out wet then cook it for a little longer.
Remove the baking tin from the air fryer basket and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tin.a
