Air Fryer Pound Cake Recipe

In the morning, I enjoy a slice of pound cake. This Air Fryer Pound Cake is just as delicious as the oven version. When you want to bake a smaller cake or avoid using the oven in the summer, an air fryer cake is a terrific solution. It’s simple and quick. 

It can be made with either the Instant Pot air fryer cover or a regular air fryer. This recipe is ideal for those who don’t have ovens or don’t want to bake in them. This delectable dessert may be made in minutes.
