    • Load into a bowl the flour and the sugar and then add in the butter chopped into chunks.
    • Mix the fat into the flour and sugar until you have a bowl of coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Then add in the egg and currants and mix well.
  • Next add enough milk to make a dough. Adding a little milk at a time until you have a soft dough ball.
  • 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.
  • Use your favourite cookie or scone cutter and make equal scone circles.
  • 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.
  • 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.
