The Scone is a small British quick bread, traditionally hailing from Scotland. They are usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea. It is generally speaking similar to but different from both a tea cake and a currant bun.
British saying: a rolling scone gathers no marmalade.
