These amazing blueberry scones, made in the air fryer, are not your typical dry and boring scones. They are so soft and full of blueberries, super EASY to make, and best of all, they are ready to eat in just minutes.
We first fell in love with scones while we were traveling to England for the first time. They were served to us as part of a tea service at a fancy restaurant, because when in England, you have to do tea! They were served with jam and cream, which just made them melt in your mouth with sweetness.
Scones can sometimes be a little dry and hard to eat, which is probably why they serve them with tea. But these scones, will prove that they can be soft and delicious, complete with yummy blueberries.
What you need to make Blueberry Scones
These blueberry scones are very easy to make. They also taste amazing regardless if they are made with fresh or frozen blueberries, so you can enjoy them all year long!
I keep blueberries in the freezer on a regular basis, just for baking. I love fresh blueberries, but when we can't eat them all before they expire, I store them in Ziploc freezer bags to keep them on hand.
Besides your air fryer and blueberries, you will need:
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
How to make Blueberry Scones in the Air Fryer
Making these scones in the air fryer is super easy, and follows a basic scones recipe. First, you combine the butter, flour, sugar, and baking powder. Stir them together until it become slightly crumbly.
Then add in the egg, and spoonfuls of the milk, until the dough forms. Next, you will stir in the blueberries until they are mixed into the dough.
Finally, you will roll the dough out and cut with a biscuit cutter, or use a drinking glass, upside down. Place the scones into the air fryer basket, lined with parchment paper, or lightly brushed with olive oil. Cook them at 380 degrees F until they are golden brown, which is about 5-6 minutes.
***Do not use air fryer with just parchment paper by itself. It must be weighted down by the dough, or it can be a fire hazard!***
