The classic pound cake recipe only has four ingredients, and you make a simple air fryer classic pound cake.
I love a good slice of pound cake in the morning. I am usually running around in the mornings, so my trick to remain sane in the morning, is the night before, while I am cleaning the kitchen, I bake an air fryer pound cake.
If you have never eaten pound cake, let me start by telling you, it’s been around for years and years.
What Are The Ingredients For An Air Fryer Pound Cake?
The name pound cake actually refers to the fact that you are using exactly a pound for the ingredients:
Which is what really surprises me when someone says 9 eggs, you need 9 eggs for this recipe. That is a pound of eggs if you google it.
I kept to the exact classic pound cake for this recipe, and it makes about 3 loaves. So, if you only want one, just divide the recipe by 3. And you will have a pound cake.
What Other Flours Can I Use For Air Fryer Pound Cake?
You can substitute it for anything you normally use, although the texture might be altered, I usually do all of my baking with all-purpose flour, because that is what most of you use.
- Whole Wheat
- Cake Flour
How Can I Tell If My Pound Cake is Finished Baking?
Here is the key, which I tell everyone. Everyone’s air fryer is slightly different, it may take your air fryer 20 minutes to bake this pound cake, it might take your neighbor’s 25 minutes.
The key is the pan. I know a lot of you want to use what is on hand, and I am a huge fan of using what’s already in your cabinets, but if you want to make loaf cakes or quickbreads in your air fryer, you need to invest the money in a small loaf pan. It will air-fry quicker and get done in the middle.
To tell if any baked good is done whether in the oven or in the air fryer, simple stick a toothpick in the center of the bread. If it comes out with moist crumbs, it is done. If it comes out with wet batter, it obviously needs more time.
Continue to bake (just like you would do in an oven recipe) until it’s done, the same temperature, just continue to bake. Personally, I add about 5 minutes, and then check, and continue until the pound cake is completely done.
Hints For Air Fryer Safe Pans:
If you want to keep the classic shape of the quick bread, then I recommend these, the mini loaf pans will give you a better end product, as they are smaller and the air fryer will do a better job at cooking them through.
Disposable Air Fryer Safe Pans–
These are perfect if you are doing a lot of baking. I make a lot of quick breads and give them to friends and co-workers during the year.

There is nothing easier than making a pound cake, today I made a pound cake with only four ingredients.
- 9 eggs
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2 cups room temperature butter
- 3 1/2 cups of flour
- In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. This will make for a fluffy pound cake.
- Then mix in the eggs and flour.
- Mix well.
- Pour the batter into a greased air fryer safe pan.
- Set the pan into the air fryer, and set the temperature to 320 degrees F, for 20 minutes.
- When the time is up, place a toothpick in the pound cake, and check to see that the toothpick comes out clean, if not add another 5 minutes.
- Plate, serve, and enjoy!
Note: Depending on your air fryer and the pan you use. I highly recommend that you purchase mini-loaf pans as they are better at cooking the entire quick bread.
Note; This will make 3 Mini Loaves
