Griddle scone facts for kids
|Alternative names||Girdle scone|
In New Zealand, griddle scones are generally cooked as one large disk shaped mass which is divided into wedges for serving, often with golden syrup or jam.
In the Scots language and the Northumbrian English dialect, a griddle is referred to as a girdle. The transposition of the sounds is due to linguistic metathesis. Therefore, griddle scones are known as girdle scones. This usage is also common in New Zealand where scones, of all varieties, form an important part of the traditional cuisine.
