History of Scones

A scone is a baked good, usually made of either wheat or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often slightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea. It differs from teacakes and other types of sweets that are made with yeast. Scones were chosen as the Republic of Ireland representative for Café Europe during the Austrian Presidency of the European Union in 2006, while the United Kingdom chose shortbread.

It is believed that historically scones were round and flat, usually as large as a medium-sized plate. They were made and baked on a griddle (or girdle, in Scots), then cut into triangular sections for serving. Today, many would call the large round cake a bannock. In Scotland, the words are often used interchangeably.

When baking powder became available to the masses, scones began to be the oven-baked, well-leavened items we know today. Modern scones are widely available in British bakeries, grocery stores, and supermarkets. A 2005 market report estimated the UK scone market to be worth £64m, showing a 9% increase over the previous five years. The increase is partly due to an increasing consumer preference for impulse and convenience foods.

Scones sold commercially are usually round, although some brands are hexagonal as this shape may be tessellated for space efficiency. When prepared at home, they may take various shapes including triangles, rounds and squares. Baking scones at home is often closely tied to heritage baking. They tend to be made using family recipes rather than recipe books, since it is often a family member who holds the "best" and most-treasured recipe.

Do You Love Tiramisu? Check Out My Fast & Easy Recipe For the Best Homemade Tiramisu

One of the first things that I think of when I hear or read 'Italy' is Tiramisu. I just can't help it. Of course, Italy has much more to offer then just their delicious Tiramisu.

Tiramisu is the most well-known dessert, it simply is the crème de la crème!

Tiramisu was invented by a confectioner called Roberto Linguanotto while he was working in his restaurant 'Le Beccherie' in Treviso, Italy. People say that tiramisu has aphrodisiac effects and therefore was served in brothels in Trevisto.

The name tiramisu comes from tireme su, which is dialect of Treviso for 'pick me up'. In Italian it's tiramisu.
