    Thanks :)
    We'll do some more agreeing or disagreeing about other things tomorrow or next week, happy to leave this one as it is.

    Scones. Rhyming with stones or bronze?

    And even more controversial, jam on top of cream, or vice versa?

    My vote is butter, then jam, then cream. Cream first if no butter, because the top of the scone (sounds like gone) needs lubricant.

    Aaaaaaaaaand GO!

    Hey, it's not my "gig" anymore but you do a disservice to a respected member, mod & this marvellous thread racking up for a "corner pocket."

    Your personal failure to see any concerns are irrelevant in the bigger picture. (There seems to be a a promoted "ideal image." Not all of humanity conforms to "that..")

    Kind regards.

    Never had one, @Mel dCP . And can't make one either as you have different cream in the UK :(

    Sorry to not be able to follow the thread, it must be the weather that's causing it.
    I'm with you. Didn't realise people served them in a different layer order.

    I've started reading 'My Sister, the Serial Killer', Oyinkan Braithwaite. Some light, uplifting holiday reading. Or not. Lucky I'm used to all the blood from my finger pricks and injections.

    One way is Cornish, the other a Devon thing. It’s a massive bone of contention in the U.K. :D :hilarious:

    Butter, jam, cream, no sultanas, rhymes with cones. Yum. Very. I have a recipe which uses heated yoghurt as the liquid and it makes the lightest scones ever. Irresistible.

    Takeout indeed spiked my levels, but I am on my way down now. It didn't spike for long before coming down, Fiasp is indeed a good boy :happy:

    That's one that's always weirded me about mainland Europe - cream. Nice bit of double cream, clotted for special occasions, but it always appears to be soured on the other side of the stream, which completely misses what a creamy taste should be,

    Scones.
    Butter and cream only. Don’t like jam.
    Sultanas or plain? No preference.
    Bridgehouse in Boscastle, Cornwall . The ultimate scone.;)

    I’ve had a cream tea there, iirc. Scones the size of dinner plates with about half a pound each of jam and cream?

    I have finally got the child to sleep after a night at the theatre. We seem to have a sick hamster.
