Today, while playing with my scone pans, I reached for one of my favorite boxed scone mixes: Trader Joe’s Mixed Berry Scones. But this recipe will work with any scone mix. It is the perfect recipe for Air-Fryer Box Scones.

If you have been reading my website for a while, you will know that I have two teens, and they are ALWAYS hungry. So, I try my best to make breakfast the night before so that I am not scrambling to make breakfast when they wake up. Hence, I really love baking in my air fryer; it’s quick and easy.

These scones were light and airy and paired well with my morning coffee.

Ideas For Cooking Scone Mix In Air Fryer

For a slight variation, just use box scone mix. An easy way to jazz up the recipe on the box is to mix 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries into the batter. We recently went blueberry picking, and we might have picked a few more than we needed, but if you do not have any on hand, you can easily skip that. Add whatever berries you have on hand.

Why Do I Bake in the Air Fryer?

Since I am writing to you, while the outside temperature is 94 degrees, the first reason that comes to mind is that it keeps the kitchen cool.

The only reason that comes to mind is that I can set the time and walk away, as the air fryer automatically shuts off.

If you come back and your food is not ready, you can just set more time. When getting to know my air fryer, I always set the time for less time than I thought it would take; this way, I wouldn’t burn my food.

Note: Since every air fryer is different, I suggest that you do the same. Remember, recipes for air fryers are variable; they depend on your air fryer model and wattage; no two air fryers are alike.

Start by adding the mix to a mixing bowl or mixer stand. I use my Kitchenaid Mixer, which I have had for a long time. It always works like a charm. Then, follow the instructions on the box and add water.How To Make Boxed Scone Mix In Air Fryer


Mix well until everything is well combined. I used a scone pan; they are very handy and easy to use. Remember to spray the pan before putting the dough in. Spread the dough out into the pan, making sure to fill the entire pan. Pop it directly into the air fryer for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. How To Make Boxed Scone Mix In Air Fryer





Pro Tips For Making Scone Mix In Air Fryer

Making scone mix in an air fryer is a fantastic idea for a quick, delicious treat with a lovely crust and a soft, fluffy inside. Here are some pro tips to ensure your scone mix turns out perfectly when using an air fryer:

  • Adjust the Recipe Slightly: Because air frying involves circulating hot air, the dough can dry out a bit. To counteract this, consider adding a tad more liquid than usual to your scone mix. A spoonful extra of milk or cream can do the trick.
  • Size Matters: Since the air fryer basket is smaller than a traditional oven tray, you’ll need to make your scones smaller. This helps them cook more evenly and ensures you don’t overcrowd the basket, allowing for good air circulation.

  • Parchment Paper: To prevent sticking and make cleanup easier, use parchment paper at the bottom of the air fryer basket. Ensure it’s perforated, or poke holes to allow air flow.

  • Don’t Overcrowd: Place the scones in the basket, ensuring space around each for air to circulate. This might mean cooking in batches, but it’s worth it for evenly cooked scones.

  • Temperature and Time Adjustments: Air fryers cook faster than conventional ovens, so you’ll likely need to reduce the cooking temperature by about 25°F (about 4°C) and the time. Check for doneness a few minutes earlier than you would in an oven.

  • Glaze or Brush: For that beautiful golden top, consider brushing your scones with a bit of beaten egg or milk before cooking. This will give them a lovely sheen and a bit of extra crunch.

  • Flipping Is Optional: Depending on your air fryer model, you might want to flip the scones halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning. However, this isn’t always necessary, so observe how your air fryer cooks and decide based on that.

  • Cool Before Serving: Let the scones cool for a few minutes after cooking. They set a bit as they cool, so this will help with texture and make them easier to handle.

  • Experiment with Flavors: Once you’ve mastered the basic scone in the air fryer, try adding different add-ins like cheese, herbs, dried fruits, or chocolate chips to make your treats even more special.

Remember, all air fryers are different, so the first batch might involve trial and error. Take notes of any adjustments you make so you can perfect your recipe over time. Enjoy your delicious air-fried scones!
