Re: ...delightful cakey accompaniment is pronounced "scone"...

The majority of times the e appears on te end of the word it alters the sound of the preceeding vowel so it matches its name (eh, ee, eye, ow, you)

so if it was meant to be scon thats how it would be spelt, its got an e on the end for a reason :)
