  • After plums were baked for about 5 minutes, remove the pan from the air fryer and pour over them the dough that we just made in an even layer.
  • Return the baking tray into the air fryer and bake the dough for 30 minutes at 300°F (150°C).

  • Wait for the cake to cool down and sprinkle over with crushed pistachios or other walnuts.



  • Bring all the ingredients to room temperature.
  • Use seasonal fruits because they are tastier.
  • Check with a toothpick to see if the cake is cooked enough.
  • Flip the cake over while it is still hot and the sugar didn't start to caramelize and to stick to the baking tray.
