Air Fryer Fruit Scones

In the cozy corner of my kitchen, where the aroma of freshly baked goods always fills the air, lies my trusted companion, the Philips Air Fryer. As a housewife, I’ve spent countless hours experimenting with recipes to find the perfect treats for my family. And it was during one bright morning that I stumbled upon a delightful gem – the Air Fryer Fruit Scones.

The Encounter

It all began on a picturesque Sunday morning when the sun streamed through the kitchen window, casting a warm glow on the countertops. As I opened the recipe book handed down from my grandmother, I came across a recipe that sparked my curiosity – Air Fryer Fruit Scones. It was a twist on the traditional scones, promising to be lighter and healthier, perfect for my family’s preference.

With a spring in my step, I gathered the ingredients – self-raising flour, unsalted butter, caster sugar, currants, eggs, and skimmed milk. The process was simple yet therapeutic. As I mixed the butter into the flour and sugar, the kitchen filled with the comforting scent of nostalgia. Memories of my childhood, spent baking with my own mother, danced in my mind.

Creating the Magic

The real magic happened when I added the eggs and currants, blending them into the flour mixture. With each ingredient, the dough began to take shape, and I couldn’t help but admire the beauty of the culinary art. Slowly, I incorporated the milk, a little at a time, until a soft dough ball formed. The consistency was perfect, and I couldn’t resist sampling a small bit. A burst of flavors danced on my taste buds, and I knew I had struck gold.

On a floured surface, I rolled out the dough, my rolling pin gliding smoothly like a ballet dancer. I opted for slightly thinner scones, making them bite-sized for a delightful morning tea. However, the recipe allowed for flexibility, and one could create larger, more traditional scones if desired.

Into the Air Fryer

The excitement grew as I arranged the scone circles in the Philips Air Fryer. The promise of perfectly golden scones in a matter of minutes made my heart race. As I brushed an egg wash on the tops, my anticipation reached its peak. I could almost taste the deliciousness that awaited us.

With the Air Fryer set at 180°C/360°F, I pressed the button, and the scones began their enchanting journey. The kitchen filled with a tantalizing aroma, and I could feel the anticipation of my family, drawn to the source of this heavenly scent.

The Culinary Adventure Unfolds

Finally, the timer chimed, and I gently lifted the scones from the Air Fryer. Their golden exteriors were a sight to behold, and I couldn’t resist breaking one open to reveal its tender crumb. My heart swelled with joy as I placed the scones on a platter, eager to surprise my family with this newfound culinary delight.

Sharing the Joy

As my family gathered around the table, their eyes lit up with curiosity and excitement. I served the scones with a side of butter and cheese, the perfect accompaniments to complement their flavor. With a sense of pride, I watched as they took their first bite, and the room was filled with a chorus of “mmms” and “ahhs.”

The air fryer fruit scones surpassed all expectations, a symphony of flavors and textures that pleased every palate. The soft, melt-in-your-mouth interior, studded with juicy currants, was a delightful contrast to the crisp, golden crust. The scones disappeared from the platter as quickly as they had appeared, leaving behind satisfied smiles and contented hearts.

Air Fryer Fruit Scones Recipe

Experience the magic of Air Fryer Fruit Scones – golden, bite-sized delights with a tender crumb and juicy currants
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 8 mins
Total Time: 18 mins
  • 225 g Self Raising Flour
  • 50 g Unsalted Butter
  • 35 g Caster Sugar
  • 50 g Currants
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1 Small Egg beaten
  • 60 ml Skimmed Milk
  • Kitchen Gadgets
  • Philips Air Fryer
  • Round Cookie Cutters Set
  1. Load into a bowl the flour and the sugar and then add in the butter chopped into chunks.
  2. Mix the fat into the flour and sugar until you have a bowl of coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Then add in the egg and currants and mix well.
  4. Next add enough milk to make a dough. Adding a little milk at a time until you have a soft dough ball.
  5. Roll out your dough on a floured worktop with a floured rolling pin. Go thin like us for smaller fruit scones or double the thickness for traditional scones.
  6. Use your favourite cookie or scone cutter and make equal scone circles.
  7. Then place into the air fryer as many as will fit, then brush egg wash on the tops and then air fry for 8 minutes at 180c/360f doing it in batches if needed.
  8. Then serve with butter and cheese.


Milk: I recommend having 60ml/4tbsp of milk for helping bind together your scones dough. Then adding a little at a time. You can always add extra but you can’t take it away.

Currants: I used just 50g of currants, you can of course double this if you like a lot of currants in your dough.

Height. Note our fruit scones are half the height of those purchased in shops. This is because we don’t have a huge appetite and find this is enough for us. If you want them more traditional then roll the dough to double the thickness of ours then you will have 6 and you will then have much higher ones.
