Air fryer users and fans will be so happy to hear this: Air frying baking recipes will be coming your way soon! Recently, I entered the world of air frying using Mayer’s new air fryer oven MMAO1450. It has been such a life changer for me in the kitchen and needless to say, I get my hands down on baking with it immediately!

Introducing to you my first air fryer baking recipe: The Air Fryer Marble Cake! Also, special mention to my friend, Carisa, who started baking this recipe with an air fryer first using the original method!

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. What is that green hue, and can I bake other variants of this cake in my air fryer?

Well, look no further!

The green hue comes from Pandan, a south east asian plant that provides great colouration and flavours. Should you prefer a plain ol’ butter cake or a chocolate marble one, I have your back! Simply click on their names and they will bring you to the respective ingredient lists. Then, follow the methods as per this Air Fryer Pandan Cake!

While the Air Fryer Marble Cake’s recipe is relatively simple, I believe it would still be handy with visualizations. As such, I have attached a video recipe guide above where you would be able to visualize the various stages of the batter. Notably, keep a close look-out especially in terms of colouration and consistency.

Long-time followers of my blog would have been familiar with this recipe, as butter and marble cakes are no stranger to this blog.

Additionally, should you have other air fryer recipes you would like me to come up with, feel free to recommend! Meanwhile, the recipe and without further ado!

Air Fryer Marble Cake Recipe
by Javier Tan September-18-2021

This Air Fryer Marble Cake has the same fluffiness and texture as the oven baked version. With the same amazing taste and aroma too!


  • 1 and 3/4 Cups or 210g All Purpose Flour, Sifted
  • 1/2 Cup + 3 Tablespoons or 135g Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon or 4g Baking Powder, Sifted
  • 1/4 Teaspoon or 1.4g Salt
  • 1 Cup or 225g Unsalted Butter, Softened at Room Temperature
  • 1/3 Cup or 90ml Full Cream Milk, at Room Temperature
  • 3 Large Eggs, each weighing about 55g, at Room Temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon or 5ml Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon or 15ml Pandan Paste / Extract (Can also try out 10ml, I tend to like a stronger Pandan Flavour)


  1. Pre-heat your air fryer 10 minutes in advanced at 160 degrees C top and bottom heat.
  2. Beat the unsalted butter slightly for a couple of minutes to fluff it up and loosen it.
  3. Then, cream both the butter and sugar until well-incorporated.
  4. Next, mix in the eggs one at a time, whisking after each addition.
  5. Add in the vanilla and milk, and mix well.
  6. Fold in the sifted dry ingredients, stopping once its well-incorporated. 
  7. Divide the batter into approximately two halves.
  8. Add pandan paste / extract to one of the halves and stir until a uniform greenness is obtained.
  9. Marble the cake ( can be visualized from the video ).
  10. Bake the cake for about 30minutes (in a 7 or 8 inch rouund cake pan lined with parchment) or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. If nearing an hour and the toothpick comes out with just very fine lumps, it is considered fully baked as well.
  11. Cool at room temperature for an hour before serving. This cake tastes best after being stored overnight.

  2. Best eaten within 6 days (refrigerated) or 4 – 5 days (room temperature). If refrigerated, make sure to take out in advanced before serving as the cake will harden in the fridge due to the high butter content.
