Scones are British single-serving cakes or quick-bread. They are made with either wheat, barley or oatmeal and baking powder. They are usually lightly sweetened with sugar, cinnamon or honey - or a mixture of each - and may contain fruit such as raisins or cherries. Sometimes they are glazed with icing. They are often eaten by the British with tea and cream. Their popularity was spread throughout the globe via the British Empire. Scones are not to be confused with tea cakes or sweet buns, which are entirely different British cakes.
