I’m in north of Scotland, have no idea what you’re even trying to name. A barncake? Is it just like a roll that you would put like cheese or sausage etc in? It’s just a roll here I think.

a tea cake is a wee chocolate biscuit with marshmallow in it.

a muffin can be either like a McMuffin - savoury or like a chocolate /blueberry muffin. Admit they should probably have two names to avoid confusion. 
 

we also have like hot cross buns- that could be your barncake 

interesting regional naming of foods discussion all the same 

Scotch rolls are a whole different conversation......

Things I’m not interested in seeing or hearing:  1) Any talk about a journey  2) Where the managers best interests are 3) The value of the squad  4) Promotion from League One 

Extremely bored of all this, anyone else? Seriously struggled watching the game today it's just utter dross. 

A change of manager is needed.

My dad was a baker in Darwen, then Great Harwood where I lived in the baker’s shop. A teacake in the Blackburn area doesn’t have currants in it, that’s a currant teacake. Basically made from white bread dough but cooked off the bottom of the oven on a rack to distinguish them from oven bottoms which are. Teacakes are for putting bacon on, currant teacake are for toasting with butter on. Both drunk with a cup of tea, hence teacake. Ashton’s bakery on Heys Lane still sell proper teacakes, not a currant in sight.

That makes sense and I agree but you haven’t addressed the barmcake issue

Thanks for confirming what Ive been trying to explain to non blackburnians  since I left 40 yrs ago

Barm cake - bit like mini sottie better a bit brunt

teacake - better pronounced as tahcake softer sweeter and no bloody currants

currant teacake - has currants...

My life is fulfilled....

You need to ask a Bolton baker about that, E. Lancs bakers didn’t make barmcakes.

Dare I ask what the yanks think a biscuit is? If it’s anything like giving you crisps instead of chips I dread to think. 

I had a biscuit once in America and it was a scone! (Without wishing to derail the thread(!) is it scone or scon??).

Then you are not allowed an opinion on important issues like bread

Nonsense. If anybody knows about what's in-bread it's that Burnley lot.

As I remember from my schooldays at SMC, we sneaked out for a dab teacake, with not a current in sight. But it had a domed top, otherwise it would’ve been a dab barmcake

The chippy at the top of St James's road used to do a John Bull barmcake
