I grew up making lemon pound cake, and now that I am an adult and have kids of my own I carry on the tradition. I have just upgraded my recipe and use my beloved Air Fryer. This Lemon Air Fryer Pound Cake Recipe below is a breeze to make, and it is so moist and scrumptious down to the last drop. When I first created this pound cake recipe for my Air Fryer I was a little nervous if it would turn out. But it turned out perfectly, and I haven’t looked back at baking cakes in my oven!

I get asked more often than not, that you can bake in your Air Fryer! The beauty of an Air Fryer is it is so versatile, just like the Instant Pot. You can cook a variety of foods from my Strawberry Banana Bread to Chicken Wings and all things in between. The Air Fryer is a healthy way to cook where you use almost no oil to fry foods, use to bake cakes and bread, and more. It really is a handy kitchen appliance that takes up minimal space, uses minimal energy and won’t heat your entire home up as you cook. That is one big perk, I hate when the weather gets hot and my entire house gets so hot from cooking that it takes hours for the air conditioner to catch up. With the Air Fryer, you don’t have that, it cooks your food to perfection and your home temperature doesn’t fluctuate.

This recipe I used to prepare this lemon Air Fryer pound cake was very similar to any other cake recipe I would use to cook in my oven. The only difference is you use a different temperature to air bake it. Once this cake was done it slid right out and didn’t stick at all. That was such a relief and it was light and fluffy, and super moist. If you have ever cooked a regular cake to find it sticks to the pan or falls apart you understand the pain. So when this came out beautifully I felt like rejoicing and jumping for joy!  All that prep work and cook time paid off.

You have that perfect pound cake texture, with a good amount of lemon flavor that will just make your taste buds dance with joy. Every bite is perfection, and great for a snack, birthday cake, or even a midnight treat. Go even a step further and add a scoop of ice cream to the side for even more sweet goodness. I hope you all enjoy this delicious pound cake like we have.

I have the IP vortex plus air fryer/oven. It has an air fryer setting as well as a bake setting. Are you cooking your cake on an air fry setting?

Thank you for your recipe. This was my very first time cooking in my air fryer. My cake has lots of flavor but it didn’t rise. Stayed very flat. I used exact ingredients. Any suggestions welcome please.

I would like to bake this in my gas/convection oven. What temp and how long should I bake it? I do have a Breville oven, that I can use the Air Fryer option. Thank you

I’m not sure, but I would think the temps and times are the same.

Love lemon pound cake, but never tried making it this way. This sounds scrumptious! Thank you for a great share - think I'll try it for those who don't care for pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. :)

I found your recipe on Yummly, where, in the ingredient list, it asks for 1/2 cup of sugar. On your web site it uses 1 cup of sugar. I made this cake yesterday in my Cuisinart oven (toaster, convection oven, air-fryer combination). There are differences in cooking time, as mine was starting to over-cook at about 20 minutes - I’m just learning to use this oven and know that your recipe was tested in a regular air-fryer, so I’m not blaming your recipe at all. I substituted only the sugar, using a Truvia blend (1/2 cup for the 1 cup you have here). The cake, although a bit too brown (my fault), was very moist and dense with a mild lemon taste, very much like a pound cake. I think I could taste the Truvia though and am wondering if I should have used even less, which leaves me to wonder, which recipe is correct, 1 cup or 1/2 cup of regular sugar?

By the way, even with my not-so-perfect cooking, the cake was eaten pretty quickly (didn’t make it to today) and everyone enjoyed it!
