    As both are accepted, and don't change the word's meaning, it doesn't really matter.

    The 'gone/cone' argument is pretty common, and I also think it depends on where you are in the country as to which pronunciation is more widely accepted.
    Nevertheless, scon is incorrect

    But always with Cream and jam or not?
    Not for a cheese scone.

    Normally it is scone,
    But once you've eaten it, it's scon.

    I say "scon", and definitely the cream first! It's difficult trying to apply the cream over a waxy jam (no innuendo intended).

    However, my mum says "scone", but then again she pronounces "goal" as "g-oh-el" and bowling as "b-oah-ling". Proper posh!

    Scon if there's one. Scone(s) if there's more than one.
    Finally worked out why it took me so long to decide which I actually say!
