Air Fryer Homemade Chocolate Bundt Cake is an amazing dessert that the entire family loved!
If you love chocolate cake, let me tell you that nothing makes a cake as tender, moist, and delicious as the air fryer!
It’s a decadent cake and so fudgy, it’s the greatest cake to make in the air fryer, and since you do not have to worry about the middle cooking. That takes that worry away!
What Is A Bundt Cake?
A Bundt Cake is nothing more than a cake cooked (or air-fried) in a circular mold, with the middle removed.
It is a traditional Old-World shape inspired by the European Cake the Gugelhupf. While that cake is specific, Bundt Cake in America can be prepared with any cake batter or recipe.
Bundt Cakes are amazing for the air fryer because you don’t have to worry about the middle cooking up, which is a common problem with baking in the Air Fryer.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Homemade Chocolate Bundt Cake
- Granulated Sugar
- All-Purpose Flour
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Vegetable Oil
- Pure Vanilla Extract
- Powdered Sugar
How To Make Air Fryer Homemade Chocolate Bundt Cake
Start by creaming the eggs and sugar together.
Then mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, oil, vanilla extract, and hot water mix well.
Then, grease your bundt cake pan, be certain to grease the edges really well. (I used olive oil, but feel free to use non-stick cooking spray)
Set in the air fryer (air fryer setting) 320 degrees F, for 12 minutes. Check and make sure that It is completely cooked, otherwise add a few minutes.
Let cool, once it’s completely cool, make the frosting and frost.
To Make the Frosting:
In a small bowl, blend the butter, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Ensure that it is well blended, and then add the milk and vanilla and mix until smooth.
- The most important thing when you make any Bundt cake is to grease the pan well. This way, it pops out. Since there are many grooves in a Bundt Cake pan, you might want to melt some butter and grease it that way. Otherwise, use cooking spray to coat the pan.
- Let the ake slightly cool down before you try to remove the cake from the pan. Otherwise, it will break.
- For best results, use room temperature ingredients.
You will need a Bundt Cake Pan that fits in your Air Fryer.
This is the one I generally recommend since it’s smaller and will fit most Air Fryer Basket Models. If you have an Air Fryer Oven, you can use a bigger Bundt Cake Pan. (affiliate link)
Can you freeze bundt cake?
Yes, you can freeze almost any cake. And since this is a regular chocolate cake, you can easily freeze it.
To freeze, let it cool to room temperature, and then wrap in saran wrap or place into an airtight container. It will last between 2 to 3 months.
To use, take the cake out of the freezer, and place it on the counter until it’s thawed.
- Dust with powdered sugar
- Add in some diced walnuts or pecans.
- Serve with some vanilla ice cream.
Can I Substitute The All-Purpose Flour?
Yes, I often make this cake for my son, who has celiac disease and substitute the flour for gluten-free flour. It works perfectly; you use the same amount of flour.
You can also make this a bit healthier by using a blend of whole-wheat flour and all-purpose flour. Just make sure that the total amounts equal the recipe measurements.
Can I Make This Air Fryer Bundt Cake Ahead Of Time?
Yes, this is a great cake that you can easily make ahead of time. Just be sure to wrap it tightly in saran or plastic wrap.
Ice the cake right before you serve it for the best results.
