Layer Cake with Seven Minute Frosting

Recipe Type: Emeril Power AirFryer 360

Servings: 6


  • 0 pan spray
  • 0 flour
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 0.5 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 0.333333 cup water
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract


1. Grease and flour two cake pans. Prepare the cake mix according to its packaging’s instructions and then pour the batter into the prepared pans.

2. Select the Bake setting (325° F/165° C). Set the cooking time to 35 mins. Press the Start Button and let the Power AirFryer 360 preheat.

3. When the Power AirFryer 360 has preheated, slide the Pizza Rack into Shelf Position 5. Place one of the cake pans on the Pizza Rack. Cook until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. When the cake is done, repeat the process with the second cake.

4. Allow the cakes to cool in the pan for at least 10 mins. Before inverting on a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Place a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan on the stove top. Add the sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, salt, and water and whisk together. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and cook, undisturbed (do not stir the mixture; stirring can cause the sugar to crystallize), until a candy thermometer inserted into the mixture reads 240° F/116° C (about 2 mins.).

6. While the mixture heats up, add the egg whites to a medium-size bowl. Use an electric mixer on high speed to beat the egg whites until foamy.

7. Once the sugar syrup reaches 240° F/116° C, immediately and carefully pour the syrup into the egg whites with the mixer running on high speed away from the beaters to prevent splattering and possible burns. Continue to beat until the frosting is glossy and fluffy (about 5 mins.). Then, beat in the almond or vanilla extract.

8. Frost the top of one cake half. Place the other cake half on top of the frosting and then frost the top of the cake.
