Scones, a quintessential part of the traditional English tea-time, are reimagined in our Air Fryer Scones recipe. By combining the classic scone recipe with the modernity of air frying, we bring a delightful crispness to the outside while maintaining a soft, fluffy inside.

The Rich History of Scones: A Time-Honored Tradition

Originating from Scotland in the early 1500s, scones have evolved from simple oatcakes to an essential component of the British afternoon tea. Our recipe honors this tradition while embracing the efficiency and health benefits of air frying.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making Air Fryer Scones

Preparatory Steps

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  • Cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Creating the Dough

  • In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, and vanilla extract.

  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry, folding gently until a dough forms.

  • If desired, fold in raisins, chocolate chips, or dried fruit.

Shaping the Scones

  • Cut the dough into wedges and place them in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not touching.

Air Frying to Perfection

Serving Suggestions

Expert Tips for Flawless Air Fryer Scones

Sides to Complement Your Scones

  • Tea or Coffee: Pair with a hot cup of tea or coffee for a classic experience.
