We love our air fryer. It is super simple to use, cuts cooking time down and best of all you don’t need to add oil to anything. I’ve been adapting some of my recipes recently to suit the air fryer and that is where these air fryer fruit scones have come from!

We also love scones, especially cheese scones. They are a great way to have a different snack, while being cheap, simple to make and pretty quick to make at home too. If you’ve never had a warm cheese scone fresh from the oven, or air fryer, you’re missing out!

I’ve tested these a few different ways now, using different fruits, fruit peels, even some seeds, but I feel that these are the original and best fruit scones! Tasty and just a little crisp on the outside, while being soft and fluffy on the inside.

These air fryer fruit scones are perfect with clotted cream and jam. Simple but so good! I love ways to save money on fruit & vegetables and buying bulk packages of sultanas, raisins and other fruits are a great way to have fruit based treats and bakes, without breaking the bank.

How to make scones in an air fryer:

I’ve adapted this method from my air fryer cheese biscuits recipe.

Pre-heat your air fryer if needed, to 200C (390F).

Mix flour and butter together until you have a breadcrumb like consistency. Add a pinch of salt.

Mix in the sultanas. Then stir the sugar in.

Add milk.

Mix.

Divide into 4.

Line your air fryer basket with parchment paper.

Drop the mixture in. You can either go for drop scones or you can just add 5g more flour to the dough for a dryer consistency (if needed) and use a cutter.

Cook for 8-10 minutes at 200C. Use a *cake tester to ensure they’re cooked through before serving.

Can you air fryer scones?

Absolutely! Here is the recipe…! I would say that, within reason, you can cook ANYTHING in the air fryer that you cook in the oven. Size dependent of course.

For more delicate items, such as scones, I always avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket and I use parchment paper. Sometimes I’ll just use a little spray oil too, to avoid sticking, if it is an item that I can’t really shake or flip midway through, such as these fruit scones.

Jam and cream or cream and jam?

I actually asked this question over on my Instagram and the winner was jam and cream! The main reason was people said that you could spread the jam and then dollop on as much cream as you like!
