Do you know? 🙋🏻♀️ 💭 Have you ever wondered?
The first mention of the word scone was in 1513 from a Scottish poet. Pronunciation of the word differs by
area. In Northern England and Scotland, the word rhymes with “gone” whereas Southern England, Wales, East
Anglia, Ireland and the United States’ pronunciation, rhymes with “tone”. The original scone was flat, round,
made on a griddle and usually formed to fill a medium-sized plate. It was then cut into triangular-shaped
sections for serving. Originally, they were prepared with oats, barley or wheat. As baking powder became
available, scones were more often baked in the oven, a leavened baked good as we know it today. The flavours
can be savoury; made with herbs, cheese, onion, bacon; or they can be sweet, filled with a variety of fruits
and/or topped with butter, jam, lemon curd or cream. Although they are the most popular in Scotland, Wales,
Ireland and England, there are regional varieties of this Afternoon Tea mainstay, in North and South America,
Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Africa.
