WHAT DOES GIRDLE SCONE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Griddle scone

The griddle scone or girdle scone is a variety of scone which is fried in a small amount of butter on a griddle or frying pan rather than baked. In the Scots language and the Northumbrian English dialect, a griddle is referred to as a "girdle". Therefore "griddle scones" are known as "girdle scones". This usage is also common in New Zealand where scones, of all varieties, form an important part of the traditional cuisine. In New Zealand, griddle scones are generally cooked as one large disk shaped mass which is divided into wedges for serving, often with golden syrup or jam.
