Kitchen Gadgets:

  • Air Fryer
  • Hand Mixer
  • 7 Inch Silicone Cake Tin

Air Fryer Christmas Cake Ingredients:

  • 225 g Butter
  • 225 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 56 g Ground Rice
  • 255 g Plain Flour
  • ¼ Tsp Baking Powder
  • 454 g Currants
  • 114 g Raisins
  • 114 g Sultanas
  • 56 g Glace Cherries
  • 50 ml Brandy optional


  • Place butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and using a hand mixer, mix until they are nice and creamy.
  • Add in eggs, golden syrup and then slowly mix with the hand mixer until well mixed together.
  • Add in the baking powder, ground rice and half of the flour. Mix slowly so that the wet ingredients are well coated in the dry ingredients. Then slowly, add the rest of the flour a bit at a time.
  • Put the hand mixer to one side and use a fork to scrape the edges.
  • Bit by bit and using a fork to mix with, add in all the dried fruit and the cherries. As you add more and more in, it will become harder to mix, but stick with it, until all the add ins are mixed well.
  • Load the Christmas cake mix into a silicone baking mould that is either 6 inches or 7 inches (depending on the size of your air fryer) and then place the silicone mould into the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 150c/300f for 40 minutes, followed by 10 minutes at 160c/320f. Remove from the silicone and place on a clean chopping board. Then coat in brandy and leave overnight if you can.


Swaps. You can mix and match with your favourite dried fruits. I loved this Christmas cake kit because it had a bit of everything that I love and I will certainly be making it again next year.Time. Note the cook time is long because Christmas cake traditionally cooks on low and you are cooking it at a lower temperature compared to other air fryer cakes.
