Scone Recipe History & Tradition
Scone Recipe History & TraditionA little history!...
The word scone is said to have come from the name of a place where Scottish kings were crowned. This place was known as 'The Stone Of Destiny'.
Early scones was baked from oats and was shaped like a triangle. Todays they are traditionally flour-based and are baked in the oven unlike the early days when they were griddle-baked.
Scones are fairly easy to bake and are a great complement to the traditional English Tea!
