Thread Name: Folklore: Bread Rolls
Subject: Folklore: Bread Rolls
This may seem an odd subject, but in these days of universal marketing the humble bread roll seems to be one product which is still known by a variety of local names: teacake, barm cake, bap etc.

At a session in Yorkshire recently, someone did a poem about visiting Lancashire and asking for a sausage sandwich in a café. "What do you want it on?" asked the waitress; "A teacake" he replied, whereupon it was served in a currant bun!

Any other local variations on this?
