Major debate with my friends over the pronunciation of scone (yes, this is a million times more fun than gcse revision)

I personally pronounce it scohn as in 'gone' whereas they maintain that it is scone as in 'bone/cone'.
How do you guys say it and what do you think is the "proper" way?

As in cone.

I think the debate over pronunciation is solely a British thing.

"Scohn" because a scone is gone after I get near one.

'Scone' as in 'cone' rather than 'on' just makes me cringe it's like saying 'basket' as in 'arse'.

Like 'scon', but really it should be pronounced 'scone' because of the e on the end.

Scone as in cone. I think it's pretty much a north/south divide on this I think??

As in cone.

I don't even bother arguing with my friends over stuff like this as they're Scottish and pronounce things in all manner of weird and wonderful ways.

S-cone.

It's spelt 'scone', not 'scon'.

Skon. For me 'scone' rhyming with 'cone' makes me think of the place -- Scone Palace, Stone of Scone, &c. Which is pronounced 'skoon'.

Most people in the UK say 'skon'. The alternative tends to sound affected.
