Marble Cake (Air fryer)

This recipe was tagged to my fridge for a long time.  It was one of those recipe that I torn out from a magazine.

I think I lost my momentum in the kitchen.  Thus, its been a while since I last bake a cake.  

Decided to bake this Mable Cake for our breakfast this morning.  Initially I was wondering what so special about this recipe.  Upon reading it again, I realised that method is different from the normal.  No wonder I kept this.

With the air fryer, I got this cake done under half an hour.  This is the kind of food I like.  Fast, easy and minimal work.



Finding: Though I didn't do well in the marbling effect but I find the texture is moist and yet not dense.  I really like it. 

Note: This taste even better the next day.

I totally love my air fryer these days as it seriously cut down the cooking or baking time needed in each recipe.

  5. I loved Avocado Smoothie with Chia Seeds. Thanks for share it . If you think the only product you can prepare in these devices are snacks so they are not affordable, then you are incorrect. You can prepare at large amount of dishes in them; it just requires a little bit of variation. Both devices come with their own selection of dishes and there are formula guides gradually arriving onto the industry. You should also keep in thoughts that some meals and dishes are more designed for Philips or the Airfryer because of how the devices are designed.

    1. Thanks Thomas for the sharing. I shall try avocado with chia seed next round. I owned the Philips air fryer so the volume is a little limited for a family of 4.

    2. My cake was burnt on top, I think the quantities are too much, half it and then is perfect, I like the smaller cake because it was eaten in one day, fresh one every day because it was sooooo quick to put together!

    3. Yes think still need to adjust the quantity a little. Too short also not nice and might be dry.

    1. wow that is a nice present you have gotten over Christmas. It is a useful machine for me. You can explore more opportunity to use this. As for the applesauce, I don't think the above recipe uses that.

    1. If it is still wet, extend the baking time. You air baking it? Mine is Philip Air fryer. Some time it could be the thermometer calibration.
