    Bap, Roll or Bun as in Burger Bun on the Sunny South Coast, the long ones would be called Finger Rolls. Does not matter if they are single or joined up. :-D

    To me these are rolls.

    I've never heard of Barm Cake but I have seen Barm Brack? What is this??

    Barmbrack is a ][COLOR=#0000ff]yeasted[/COLOR]][COLOR=#0000ff]bread[/COLOR] with added ][COLOR=#0000ff]sultanas[/COLOR] and ][COLOR=#0000ff]raisins[/COLOR]. Usually sold in flattened rounds, it is often served ][COLOR=#0000ff]toasted[/COLOR] with ][COLOR=#0000ff]butter[/COLOR] along with a cup of ][COLOR=#0000ff]tea[/COLOR] in the afternoon. The ][COLOR=#0000ff]dough[/COLOR] is sweeter than sandwich bread, but not as rich as ][COLOR=#0000ff]cake[/COLOR], and the sultanas and raisins add flavour and texture to the final product. In ][COLOR=#0000ff]Ireland[/COLOR] it is sometimes called Báirín Breac, and the term is also used as two words in its more common version.

    sounds like a tea cake to me! here we go again....

    lol, thxs for that. I was thinking of Tea Cake too!!!! Yummy!! :w00t:

    In Great Britain and Ireland a teacake is a light, yeast-based bun typically split, toasted, buttered, and served with tea. It is flat, circular and roughly 15cm in diameter, with a smooth brown upper surface and a somewhat lighter underside.

    In certain areas of West Yorkshire e.g. Halifax the term teacake is often used to describe a flatbread bun without the addition of currents/sultanas, outside of this region some may use the term cob, bread roll, bread bun, bread cake or Barm cake. This type of teacake could be traditionally served with Fish & Chips. Marks & Spencers retail outlet sell "Traditional Yorkshire Teacakes" which resemble plain bread rolls.

    In other areas of West Yorkshire the more traditional toasted and buttered teacake is known as a "Fat Rascal".

    In Kent the tea cake is known as a Huffkin, which is often flavoured with hops, especially at the time of harvesting hops in September

    An unrelated confectionery product, made in Scotland, is the Tunnock's Tea Cake.

    In the southeast of the United States, a tea cake is a traditional cookie, similar to a sugar cookie.

    In Australia a teacake is a larger cake of the type made with a mixture of flour, eggs, fat and sugar. It is served sliced as an accompaniment to tea. Australian teacakes are sometimes sprinkled with cinnamon and fine (caster) sugar, and are often served warm from the oven.

    bap or roll, batch or barm - depends which accent i'm using at the time!

    as a lancs lass it's deffo a barm:)

    for the yorkshire folk it's a bread cake(pronounced bret cake,if i am not mistaken!)

    for the southern softies(apologies:giggle: ) it's a roll

    a teacake has fruit in it.

    that should clear it up:p
