Inspired by @jjsh question about the correct pronunciation of scone.

What do you call this little bundle breadlines.

I know it as a teacake. You can have white tea cakes, brown tea cakes and fruit tea cakes.

Mrs. Hagrid knows it as a batch?!

I'd call them rolls, or maybe baps, :laugh8: ooh er missus!

Around here they're called cobs, when I worked in Sheffield, they were always breadcakes.

Here in Leicester it's a cob, and you'll get looked at like you've got two heads if you call it anything else.

In sunny Lancashire where I was brought up it's a barm cake, which is both correct and ties in with the theme of the forum.

A cob is a big roundish loaf,those are bread rolls or baps.
When Mrs Clint is preparing a light lunch I like to check that she has got the baps out...

If crusty, it's a cob. If soft, it's a bap. Fact. End of.

I'm from Brummagem.

Tell you what, haven't had a cob for years. The ones with so much butter, the filling slides out, a d your teeth ache from pulling it apart. Good times.

Breadcakes, Baps or bread cakes anything with the word tea in it as teacake generally has fruit in it or if no fruit is a sweet bread and not basic bread.
And thats the law from Yorkshire

Can remember the joys of a bacon cob from the student union when I was a student in Leicester. Here in the south east it seems to stick to being a roll.

Yeah cakes have icing or candles unless it's a fruit cake...or bun.
Talking of cakes...we nipped out earlier and my dogs nicked a box of fairy cakes off the table...and a packet of Oreos!
