by anne 17 years ago

I have to say, lately I've just been totally repulsed by chain cafe scones that are the size of shoes and look as unappetizing as a baked good possibly can. It seems like they're growing more ridic...

Scones (was The bizarre nature of scones in the Bay Area)

It's not just the Bay Area. I live in the Midwest, and whenever I've tried scones they've been these hard, dry lumps. I don't know if that's what the original poster meant by "rock cakes," but th...
