Air-Fried Blueberry Lemon Scones

Air-Fried Blueberry Lemon Scones


For the Scones:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (plus extra for brushing)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon


Preheat the Oven:

Prepare the Scone Dough:

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Add the cold cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add Blueberries:

  • Gently fold in the fresh blueberries to the flour mixture.

Mix Wet Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, egg, and vanilla extract.

Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures:

  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and gently stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the dough should be somewhat crumbly.

Shape and Cut the Scones:

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a 1-inch thick round. Use a sharp knife to cut the round into 8 wedges.

Bake the Scones:

  • Place the scones on the EaZy MealZ Air Fry Crisper. Brush the tops of the scones with a little extra heavy cream. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown and cooked through.

Prepare the Lemon Glaze:

  • While the scones are baking, prepare the lemon glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth.

Glaze the Scones:

  • Once the scones are out of the oven and slightly cooled, drizzle the lemon glaze over the tops using a spoon.


  • Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes, then serve the Blueberry Lemon Scones warm or at room temperature.


  • Delight in the divine combination of tart lemon and juicy blueberries in every bite of these freshly baked scones, perfect for a leisurely breakfast or a charming tea-time treat.
