  • Place the flour, sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and rub the fat into the flour.
  • Add the raisins and honey.
  • Using a good grater add the lemon and orange rind. Chop them both in half and squeeze the juice from them both into the bowl too.
  • Using a fork give it a good mix.
  • Crack the egg in and mix it again.
  • Add milk a little bit at a time until you have a soft dough.
  • Make the dough into small to medium sized scone shapes.
  • Place in the air fryer inside the grill pan and cook at 180c/360f for 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm.


You can do little or large scone sizes. We went with small to medium and this made us 8 rock buns. If you can use a good quality citrus zester. Otherwise you could be a bloody mess! We find the way to make the least amount of mess baking in the air fryer is to either use a baking mat that fits onto your air fryer basket or to get an air fryer grill pan.
