3 Ingredient Air-fryer Scones Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

When I get to a ripe old age, say around 80, I hope I spend my days playing with puppies {or grandkids!} and eating scones. Scones are joy. That warmth. The cream. The jam. Heaven.

I mean look at it…

And the trick here is the air fryer. It’s probably the most over-used appliance in our house. It does everything. So it made sense to make these in the air fryer, instead of putting the oven on.

3 Ingredient Air-fryer Scones Recipe


3 cups self-raising flour

1 cup thickened cream

1 cup lemonade


  1. In a large bowl, place the flour and make a well. Pour in the cream and the lemonade. Stir to combine. Place onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.
  2. Divide the dough into 16 even parts and shape into scones. Place a square of baking paper into the base of your air fryer, and then place 4-8 scones, depending on the size of your air fryer. Cook at 180ºC for 15 minutes. Remove and eat warm. If they’re not cooked through at 15 minutes {every air fryer varies, put on for 2 minute intervals until cooked through}.
  3. Serve with lashings of jam and cream.
