Where did scones originate from? Well, they are traditionally connected to England, Scotland and Ireland, but no-one seems to know who invented it.

According to Webster’s Dictionary, scones originated in Scotland in the early 1500’s.

Some say the word “Skone ” comes from the Dutch word “schoonbrot “, which means beautiful bread. Others however, argue it comes from Stone of Destiny, where the Kings of Scotland were crowned, also The Scots Gaelic term “sgonn” means a shapeless mass or large mouthful.

I don’t know about you but I’m not really bothered where it originated from I’m just pleased someone invented the recipe.
