Scones in the air fryer

If you’re a fan of scones, you’ll definitely want to try making them in the air fryer! Not only is it a quicker cooking method than the oven-baked scone, but it also results in perfectly golden and crispy. Plus, you’ll still get that classic flaky texture on the inside. The air fryer allows for even heating, so every bite will be just as delicious as the last.

And the best part? You can customize the recipe with your favourite flavours and toppings. From dried fruit to chocolate chips to juicy cherries, the possibilities are endless. Give it a try and enjoy warm and delicious scones in a flash! Croissants also cook well in the air fryer!

How to make plain scones in the air fryer

  • Lightly grease a brownie tin that will fit in your air fryer.
  • Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl and add the rubber. Rub in with fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
  • Break the egg into a measuring jug, then make up to 150ml (5 fl oz) with milk. Gradually add to the flour (you may not need it all), and mix to a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to a thickness of ½ inch (1 cm). Cut into rounds with a fluted cutter and place in the tin.
  • Turn the air fryer to 200℃ and bake for 6 minutes. You could possibly bake these in 5 minutes, but I wanted a golden finish,

Storage for scones

Let’s face it; scones don’t stay fresh for very long. That’s where proper storage comes in. You want to make sure that your scones stay moist and fluffy, not dry and crumbly.

My favourite way to store them is in an airtight container on the kitchen counter. This way, they get to breathe a little but are still protected from the elements. If you’re planning on keeping them for more than a day, consider stashing them in the fridge. And if you want to take things to the next level, try freezing them. Just make sure to wrap them up tightly before chucking them in the freezer. Happy scone-ing!
