Scones with Strawberry jam and cream for afternoon tea. Yum!
Baking scones in an airfryer is super easy, and tastes great. An awesome treat for afternoon tea.
TEMP170°C or 340°F
- 3 1/2 cups Self-Raising Flour Extra for dusting
- 1 cup Thickened Cream
- 1 cup Milk
- 5 ml Olive Oil Cooking Spray
- 1/2 cup Strawberry Jam
- 1/2 cup Double Thick Cream
Place the flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the thickened cream and milk.
Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until it forms a sticky dough.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead it until just smooth (Ensure you don't over knead the mixture)
Preheat the air fryer to 170°C or 340°F for approximately 3 minutes depending on the air fryer you have. (This is very important)
Flatten the dough until approximately 2.5cm thick. Using a 6cm round cookie cutter, cut out the scones. Press the leftover dough together, and repeat this step to make a total of 12 scones.
Pull out the air fryer basket and spray the basket with the olive oil spray to stop the scones from sticking to the basket.
Place 4-6 scones next to each other into the basket, and slide the basket back into the air fryer.
Cook for 15 minutes until they are lightly golden brown, and hollow when tapped on the top.
Repeat with the remaining scones.
Top with strawberry jam, and double thick cream.
Important: Ensure you preheat the air fryer prior to placing the scones in it. This ensures the scone dough will rise.
As a variation of this recipe, you can also try pumpkin scones. Just mash some cooked pumpkin and add it into the dough mixture.
