Remember the step-by-step directions and detailed ingredient list are below, in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, as well as the nutritional information.

  • All-Purpose Flour: The foundation of your scones, providing the necessary structure and ensuring they hold their shape during the air frying process.
  • Granulated Sugar: Adds a hint of sweetness to complement the raspberries’ tartness, enhancing the scones’ overall flavor profile.
  • Baking Powder: The key leavening agent that helps the scones rise and become light and fluffy.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt balances the sweetness and enhances the flavors of the other ingredients.
  • Unsalted Butter: Adds richness and creates the flaky layers characteristic of a great scone.
  • Heavy Cream: Provides moisture and richness, contributing to the tender crumb of the scones.
  • Egg: Works as a binder and enriches the dough, adding richness and color to the scones.
  • Vanilla Extract: Adds a hint of warm, aromatic flavor that complements the fruity tartness of the raspberries.
  • Fresh or Frozen Raspberries: The star ingredient, providing bursts of juicy, tart flavor in every bite.

How To Make Raspberry Scones In Air Fryer

Making Raspberry Scones in an air fryer combines the ease of air frying with the delightful taste of fresh, berry-filled pastries. Here’s a simple guide to creating these delicious treats.

Air Fryer Raspberry Scones

Fold in the fresh raspberries. Using non-stick cooking, spray your scone pan and pour in your batter. Set the pan or scone trays into your air fryer basket or tray. Set the temperature to 320 degrees F for 12 minutes (air fryer setting)

Pro Tips

  • Cold butter is best for this recipe. As the scones cook up, the butter will start to melt, which leads to moist scones.
  • This recipe will work in all air fryer models, both oven and basket types. I have used the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Vortex, and even the Instant Pot Crisp lid, and the results are the same. 
  • Do not over-mix; otherwise, you will have dense scones.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter or milk to moisten the scones during baking.
  • You can use frozen raspberries, although for best results, keep them frozen until you fold them into the batter.

Storing: These make a great make-ahead breakfast recipe and will keep fresh for about 1 to 2 days after making them. The key is to place them into an airtight container and then leave them at room temperature. Heat them in the microwave or air fryer until warm before serving.

Freezing: They will work perfectly if you double or even triple the batch and then freeze one batch. Let the scones cool to room temperature, then place them into a freezer bag. Place them into the freezer, and they will last 1 to 2 months. To use, either in the refrigerator or on the counter.

Equipment Used

While you can use a biscuit cutter to cut these Air Fryer Raspberry Scones, investing in a scone pan will produce better results.

I have used this scone pan for years, and if you use a pair of scissors, you can cut it to size, which means it will fit any air fryer (affiliate link included)
