Easy light and fluffy vegan scone recipe made in just 30 minutes including baking time! Dairy-free and eggless easy scones recipe.
I have always pronounced ‘scone’ as in ‘stone’ and thought that was the only official pronunciation for it. However, during the years I spent in England, I’ve come across a good number of people who would pronounce it as in ‘gone’.
Apparently in Scotland and the northern part of England, it is pronounced to rhyme with ‘gone’ while in the south of England, the ‘stone’ pronounciation can more often be observed.
Well, scones originated from both Scotland and South West England where at that time, it was made with oats and baked on a griddle with no leavening agents added.
So, how do you pronounce scone?
– to rhyme with ‘gone’, or
– to rhyme with ‘stone’
I got inspired with rhymes to write a little poem:
I have tried many scones recipes and adapted the non-vegan ones too. But my favourite remains this plain scone recipe which I have made many times. This is a light and fluffy version which you can enjoy with your favourite spread or topping.
