Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre; pour in combined buttermilk and lemon curd. Using a flat-bladed knife, gently stir until dough just comes together.


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Using your hands, knead mixture briefly. Pat out until dough is 3cm thick.


Using a floured cutter, cut 5.5cm rounds from dough. Press scraps of dough together until 3cm thick. Repeat cutting to get a total of 9 scones. Brush top of scones with any buttermilk left in the carton or 1 tablespoon of milk.


Preheat a 7-litre air fryer to 180°C/350°F for 3 minutes.


Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Taking care, place scones, side by side, in the basket. Reset the temperature to 160˚C/325˚F; cook for 17 minutes.


Serve warm scones with jam and cream.

You can also serve the scones with lemon curd and whipped cream, if you like.
