    I live on he north coast of my country.
    Haha, I first encountered the word last week, watching The Great British Bake-off. And as they had to make the baps it was clear what it meant :)
    Am I the only one who loves watching those people bake all kinds of stuff I can't really eat? (I mean, I could eat a little of it, but not really without a hassle)

    I thought that baps was only a term used in my neck of the woods (area where I live )
    We had a friend who was a refugee from an African country and I used to tease him that I would charge him £5 for every word or phrase that I explained to him. It's amazing how much I would have made although his English was excellent we talk different up ere !

    I think I had some idea of what a bap was from the context of a book I was reading that mentioned them. I have never heard "barmcake" 'til now, or "oven bottom cake." To me, a bread roll is a yeast roll of just about any shape, including a "cloverleaf roll" and what we called "pillow rolls" when I was a child. I didn't know that a teacake was the same as a bread roll; I had thought of that as a sweet cake of some sort. Live and learn! :)

    A tea cake is bread with currants or sultanas in and toasted :hungry::hungry:. Although they are quite high carb I still indulge occasionally.

    Cool -- another similarity between the north of England and the south of the US. And I'd thought "neck of the woods" was a purely Southern American expression! But then, considering where so many Southern Americans came from ... :)

    In Wigan it was Smack barm pea wet sounds awful but tastes OK grandson was always asking for it when we went to the chip shop.

    And of course round here Nottinghamshire you call a bread roll a cob..

    Btw those little bits of material are't for patching tears they are testers you put them in the washing to tell how the material stands up to washing.

    Yes ... up 'ere a cob is crusty round bread, often served with soup (and a small horse!). Not served with a small horse, that is. A small horse is also a cob.

    I used to watch the Winter Olympics and the Westminster Dog Show that way with a friend. Long before the days of Whatsapp (what is that, anyway?) we would watch and talk on the phone. Since we both had call waiting we didn't worry about tying up the phone line. :)

    Just to add another complication ... in the US, "cob" re horses is only a size of bridle slightly smaller than a regular-size bridle.

    I would actually enjoy a lunch/dinner/supper/brunch of soup with a cob and a horse. ;)

    Teacake in my neck of the woods is a plain bread soft roll that makes a bacon butty .Not to be confused with a currant tea cake that comes toasted .!

    My lovely son-in-law was born and brought up in Wilpshire until he married my daughter and moved to Clitheroe. Valley Road.

    Scones are either plain or with sultanas and are eaten cold with lots of jam and clotted cream

    A friend and I once found a recipe for scones in a British cookbook. We followed it to the letter, made the scones, put them into the oven ... got them out ... only to see ...

    Biscuits! Good old southern USA biscuits. ;) :D
