How do you pronounce 'scone'?

I don't think there's any right or wrong way to say it (tho, I'm sure someone will correct me :rolleyes:) - but I'm fairly sure it's a regional thing - where northern people will say it like gone, and the southern people like cone...

I didn't think I was posh.. I think it might be to do with where in Britain you're from.

yeah, I knew some people from kent and they pronounced it as cone - and they were the skankiest people I've ever met :smashin:

Actually, as a northerner, I've always pronounced it like cone, as did everyone I knew. I've found the 'gone' version to be southern (and especially west country, as per my wife's family).

Now here are the real questions:
  • Fruit or plain? Plain, of course. The fruity ones are an abomination unto the Lord;
  • Warm or cold? Cold
  • Cream first or jam first? Jam first.
  • Spread the jam and cream or put a bit of each on before each bite? Bit of each.

Fruit? or plain?

Surely, cheese wins?

I like a fruit scone (like bone).

Slice in half, cream (ideally clotted) on one half, jam (preferably raspberry) on the other half, then re-assemble and enjoy with a nice cup of Assam tea.

Hungry now:smashin:

I'm not a fan of a cheese scone.

That must be a Cardiff scone. We put a couple of extra letter o in the valleys. Scooone.
