Before we start, let’s gather all the necessary ingredients for the sponge cake.

For the Sponge Cake:

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


Step 1: Preparing the Batter

  1. Prepare the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 320°F (160°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat the Eggs and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar using an electric mixer or stand mixer on high speed until the mixture is thick, pale, and fluffy. This should take about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should form ribbons when the beaters are lifted.
  3. Sift the Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. This ensures the dry ingredients are well combined and free of lumps.
  4. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a small bowl, mix the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  5. Fold in Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, folding gently with a spatula to maintain the airiness of the batter. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Add Wet Ingredients: Gently fold in the milk and butter mixture until just combined. The batter should be smooth and light.
