From the South...
It's Pe-Cahn or Pe-con here!
(not puh-con... pe-cahn is the closest spelling to me)

Peeeek-n or Peeee-con sounds so weird!!!

NJ, in the Philly 'burbs here and I say pee-kahn, with the stress on the 2nd syllable. When I was little, I used to call the little cakes peekin' twirls, though.

Well, I'm a Southern girl from North Carolina and I've always pronounced it pee can. My grandmother was from South Carolina and that's how she pronounced it, too.
