Philips Airfryer Chocolate Cake

Serves: 1 cake
Cooking Time: 50 minutes, plus cooling time


  • 3 eggs
  • 125ml sour cream
  • 150g flour
  • 150g castor sugar
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 10ml (2 tsp) vanilla essence
  • 150g chocolate
  • 50g unsalted butter, soft
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 5ml (1tsp) vanilla essence



Preheat Philips Airfryer to 160°C.


Place all the cake ingredients into a food processor and mix well. Transfer to the oven dish.


Place the oven dish into the basket of the Philips Airfryer. Slide the basket into the Philips Airfryer and set the timer for 25 minutes. Once the time is up and the timer rings, prick the cake with a wooden skewer or fork. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked through. If it’s still sticky, place the cake back into the Philips Airfryer and set the timer for another 5 minutes.


Remove the dish from the basket and leave the cake to cool on a wire rack.


Meanwhile, melt the chocolate au bain marie or in the microwave. Leave to cool a little, then mix all of the icing ingredients together.


Remove the cooled cake from the oven dish and place it onto a plate. Cover with the chocolate icing and serve.
