  • ½ cake mix prepare batter as per instructions


  • Generally a Pilsbury’s cake mix yields two 6” cakes. I make one at a time for a small treat for my family.
  • As per the instructions on the pack, add wet ingredients to the dry cake mix and prepare a batter.
  • In your cake mould, add the batter and flatten on the top using a spatula.
  • Preheat air fryer at 180C or 360F for 5 minutes.
  • Put in the cake mould and air fry at 180C or 360F for 22-25 minutes till the cake is cooked and toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool down before demoulding and cutting it into pieces. Enjoy your delicious chocolate cake.


1. Make the cake batter as per instructions on the packet. You can make two cakes in 6” cake pans.
2. I used silicone cake mould. You can use your regular cake pan that you use in oven for baking this one.
3. Preheat the air fryer. After putting the cake batter in the pan, air fry for 22-25 minutes till the cake is done.
4. Since this was a chocolate fudge cake, it had gooey fudgy parts. When making a regular chocolate cake, you can insert a toothpick in the centre to check that it comes out clean. Your cake is then cooked.
5. I did not get a dark top but in case you do, you can cover the top of the cake midway into air frying by a foil.
Let the cake cool down before demoulding and cutting into pieces.
6. You can choose to put frosting on top or just serve it as a tea cake. It is delicious and convenient.
