What are the basic differences between scones, biscuits, tea-biscuits, muffins ? I know that cookie is the american word for the british biscuit.. Or is there any other difference?
I don't have an oven; is there any way to simulate what an oven does with any other tools available at my home? In particular I would like to be able to bake cakes.
I specify sweet fruit here because I think there would different good answers for a savory or a custard based pie.
