I have been receiving lots of question on dairy-free and egg-free chocolate cake after sharing the recipe of AirBaked Almost Famous Chocolate Cake.

 So I did a little research...voila!

As you know chocolate cake is a hit with everyone, so whether you're vegan or dairy intolerant - or you just love a good cake.....this one is for you!
I baked this cake for my hubby's birthday and all of us loved this cake to bits....my little boy asked for a second helping too!
Trust me this is an easy cake recipe where you can bake it without having to use any special ingredients. This recipe will comes in handy if you have tons of Christmas parties and wanting to bake a quick & easy cake. Of course this will not be the old traditional fruit cake but hey....who doesn't love chocolate cake!

 AirBaked Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake

94gm All-purpose Flour
100gm Brown Sugar (85gm for less-sweet)
2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tbsp White Vinegar
3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Water


  • Preheat AirFryer at 180°C.
  • Sift flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder into the baking pan (6.3 inches / Philips Airfryer Round Baking Tray). Mix well and make 3 wells on the flour mixture. (Tips: this recipe yields a 6 inches cake so if you wish you to bake a bigger cake, just double up the ingredients) 
  • Pour oil into the first well, vinegar into second, and vanilla into the third well. Then pour water over all, and stir until well combined. 
  • Reduce the AirFryer temperature to 160°C.
  • Cover the baking pan with foil and poke random holes on it. 
  • Place the baking pan in the basket and let it AirBake for 30-33 minutes. Once done, remove foil and continue to AirBake for another 5-8 minutes, or until the skewer inserted comes out clean.

  1. Hi Samantha, may I know if I can replace the vegetable oil with coconut oil? Am eager to try this recipe out.

    1. Sure you can replace it using coconut oil and i bet the taste will be even nicer with hint of coconut in the cake :) Do let me know how the cake turn out with coconut oil!

  2. Also, can I use apple cider vinegar instead?
    Thanks in advance :)

    1. I'm sure you can as long as it still under the vinegar family :)

  3. Hi Samantha, may i know how should the texture of this cake be? Ive just gotten my AF & i tried baking this cake (my 1st attempt at baking a cake!). I followed your ingredients measurements, only reducing the amount of sugar as i didnt want the cake to be too sweet. And ive used a 7.5 inch baking tin instead. But my cake turned out to be more like a brownie rather than a cake! The top & bottom are crisp & the inside slightly chewy. Frankly i dont mind it as it was my maiden attempt at baking a cake, using an AF somemore. But am left wondering did i do something wrong that my cake doesnt really look or have the texture of a cake?
