Air Fryer Scones Ingredients:

  • 225 grams of self-raising flour
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 28 grams of caster sugar
  • 60 milliliters of whole milk
  • Egg wash
  • Extra virgin olive oil spray
  • Optional: squirty cream
  • Optional: fresh strawberries
  • Optional: strawberry jam


  • In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar, then add the cubed butter.
  • Rub the butter into the flour mixture using your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Gradually add enough milk to form a soft dough (approximately 60ml).
  • Roll out the dough on a floured worktop to a thickness of at least 1.5cm to avoid small scones.
  • Use cutters to shape the dough into medium-sized scones and place them in the air fryer basket.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with extra virgin olive oil to prevent sticking, then brush the tops and sides of the scones with egg wash.
  • Air fry the scones for 5 minutes at 180°C/360°F, then continue cooking for another 12 minutes at 160°C/320°F.
  • Serve the scones with optional accompaniments such as strawberry jam, sliced strawberries, and cream.


For Extra Height: If you’re aiming for scones with a lofty appearance reminiscent of magazine covers, simply double the ingredients and increase the thickness of the dough twofold when placing them in the air fryer. Additionally, add an extra 3 minutes to the cooking time.

Traditional Note: This recipe hails from the 1960s and embodies the essence of traditional British scones. Feel free to modernize it according to your preferences.
