  • Vortex Air Fryer



  • 125 g butter room temperature
  • 75 g granulated white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 g self-raising flour
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon curd
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • Pinch of salt


  • 2 Tbsp Granulated white sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  • Grease and line a loaf tin, suitably sized for your Instant Vortex Air Fryer. We used a 2lb tin.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until soft.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, alternating with the flour as you go.
  • Add the lemon curd, zest and pinch of salt and mix to combine
  • Spoon the cake mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Select Bake on the Vortex , set the temperate to 165°C and time for 40minutes. Bake until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, make the syrup, heat the sugar gently until dissolved, then add the lemon juice. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
  • When the cake is cooked, remove from the Air Fryer, but leave it in the tin. Pour over the syrup and leave to cool to room temperature.
  • Slice and serve with your favourite tea.
