"Bun" if it's specifically made for hamburgers. "Roll", otherwise.

 

you wouldn't use those for burgers, burger buns are completely different consistency.

So looks like I'm the only one around here who knows them as bread cakes  :huh:

 

Must be a People's Republic of Yorkshire thing  :woot:

Bun.  We have this argument every few months with our Scottish Graphic Designer at work, he's adamant they're rolls.

I'm from Yorkshire and would normally call it a tea cake.

 

I think folks from t'other side of t'hills call them barms.

In the form that the picture shows, it's a roll.  If you slice it in half and put something between it, then it's a bun.

That's how I see it, at least.

That's my thought as well.   Hard to tell from picture, kinda looked like a hamburger bun.

For the love of god - tea cakes have currants in them :trout:

 

 Sans-currant they are a humble bread cake ;)

I would call it a Teacake too, defiantly a regional thing though. I've got some strange looks elsewhere saying that.

I'd call that a cob, but think that it may be regional thing. I had a lot of strange looks when using the word cob at university.

Bap or roll.

 

A longer one for say a hotdog would be closer to a "roll" though.

Bap or Roll - interchangeable.

 

A bun is something like:

Some of the stuff in here is just bizarre. Da f' is a freakin' bap? Cob? You mean like a cob salad? Never heard these things in my life. To me it's a damn roll or bun.

So someone at work said "barm cake" whe holding a bread roll yesterday, and had to explain herself. So what do you call one of these?

Barm is a Oldham / Manchester region thing (Roads are named with Barm e.g. Barm Road or Barm Way) and further north they become Barm Cake, Teacake. I had no idea until I ordered lunch whilst away on training in Oldham.

 

I'm from the south west, we refer to rolls as rolls.

Technically I'd call it a bread roll.

 

Because a roll is a list of names.

A rolls is a car.

 

If you're saying out outloud, a roll is something you do with a die/dice, or a part you play, or something that a car can do if you left the handbrake off.

 

 

 

Gee I love the English language. :laugh:

WTF?

 

Get a hold of a Cocker Spaniel, tie this person down on a chair with a potty on his head, then pop his todger between two floury baps, and shout "Dinnertime, Fido!"

 

See my OP, "and had to explain herself"

Crusty = cob

Floury = bap

Hotdog shaped = roll

 

However roll and bap are interchangable.
