I love my air fryer, and I have always loved cast iron. Today, I put them together and made a very easy Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Cake. It is fabulous. If you have not made one yet, you are so missing out. They are the perfect treat for the entire family.
Now, while cinnamon rolls are usually served for breakfast, do not let the name fool you. This is a perfect dessert (and breakfast!)
Now, I’m not perfect. The drizzle could have been better designed, but it’s really what is inside that is amazing.
This is not the ordinary cake that you are used to. This is a light and buttery cake with a sweet center. My next recipe for my skillet and air fryer will be a coffee cake, so be on the lookout for that.
