GUEST, Help: What's a 'penny bap'? (70* d) RE: Help: What's a 'penny bap'? 16 Mar 00

Alison. I have been buying baps in Australia since I came here in '75. Before that I had only heard of them in Josephine Tey book in which her Inspector Grant goes to Scotland and is given a bap; but is told that since the war they no longer have "chew".

A bap does not look like a hamburger bun! It looks like a scone that has taken to overeating and doing no exercise.

By the way, what is the origin of the word "bap"?
