Fruit scones are quick and easy

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for fruit scones that you can prepare in your air fryer:


  1. Two cups of all-purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup of sugar, granulated
  3. One-third tsp baking powder
  4. Half a teaspoon of salt
  5. Half a cup of chilled, diced unsalted butter
  6. Half a cup of dried fruit (chopped apricots, raisins, currants, or cranberries)
  7. two and a third cups milk
  8. One large egg, whisked (to make egg wash)
  9. Coarse sugar to sprinkle on top is optional.


  • Mix the baking powder, salt, granulated sugar, and all-purpose flour together in a sizable mixing basin.
    Incorporate the chilled cubed butter into the flour blend. Until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, cut the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or your fingers.
    Add the dry fruit and stir until it is well mixed into the batter.
    Create a well.
  • Place the milk in the middle of the dry ingredients. Gently combine with a wooden spoon or fork until a soft dough forms. Take cautious not to blend too much.
    Place the dough onto a surface dusted with flour and carefully flatten it into a circle that is approximately one inch thick.
    Cut scones out of the dough using a biscuit cutter or a round glass. Scone the scones onto a baking sheet coated with paper.
  • Start the air fryer at 375°F, or 190°C.
    If desired, sprinkle coarse sugar over the tops of the scones after brushing them with beaten egg, or egg wash.
    With space between each scone to allow for air circulation, arrange the scones in the air fryer basket in a single layer.

  • These fruit scones from the air fryer are incredibly simple to prepare and make for a delightful afternoon tea or brunch. You can alter the recipe by substituting your preferred dried fruits or by enhancing the flavor with a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon.
