How to Make Easy, No-Roll, Mixed Berry Scones in Your Air Fryer With Your Sourdough Discard

These scones are super easy and a great way to use up your sourdough starter/discard. You can bake the scones immediately or let them sit on the counter for an hour or two if you'd like more sourdough taste and rise. The scones require no butter, only heavy cream. You mix the wet ingredients, add the dry, and drop the batter/dough onto baking parchment, so no rolling out is required! The cream scones really are easy! The scones come out of the air fryer with slightly crispy exteriors and soft interiors--think of a muffin crossed with a yeast bread. The scones also are full of juicy, sweet-tart berries, which echo the tang of the sourdough. I use frozen mixed berries for the scones but feel free to use fresh berries, if you'd like. Enjoy!

Air Fryer Sourdough Mixed Berry Cream Scones -- Makes about 6


1 cup of sourdough starter/discard

1/4 - 1/2 cup of heavy cream

1/3 cup of sugar, plus more to sprinkle

1 cup of flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cup of frozen (don't thaw) mixed berries--blueberries, blackberries, strawberries


Cut sheets of baking parchment to fit your air fryer basket. In a medium bowl, stir together well the starter/discard, 1/4 cup of cream, and the sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir them into the wet mixture. Add more cream, a tablespoon at a time, if the dough/batter seems too dry. You want a slightly wet dough. I have a fairly stiff starter/discard, so I use about 1/3 cup of cream. Fold in the frozen berries until combined. Drop two mounds (about 1/4 cup each) of dough batter on each sheet of parchment. Dampen your hands with a little water and shape the scones into roundish disks, if you'd like, then sprinkle each disk/mound with a little sugar (about 1/2 teaspoon). Put one dough-topped piece of parchment in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the scones at 360 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the scones from the basket to cool and repeat the cooking process with the remaining dough.
