As the longest serving monarch in England’s history, Queen Elizabeth II has met and spent time with countless world leaders. Owing to the special bond that the U.S. has with the U.K. this means that the queen has met many a U.S. President. However, there was one POTUS with which she exchanged quite a few pleasantries and at least one recipe: President Eisenhower.
We can’t think of anything better to serve for breakfast than the queen’s drop scones- which go perfectly with fresh berries and whipped cream or really any sweet toppings you can think of. Plus you’ll get the bragging rights of being able to serve a very royal breakfast to your family or friends.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon melted butter
Beats eggs and add to them sugar and 1/2 of the milk.
Add flour to mixture and blend well, only adding enough of remaining milk to reach the consistency of melted ice cream.
Add in baking soda and cream of tartar and fold in melted butter.
Heat a large frying pan on medium high to high heat and drop in by spoonfuls as you would pancakes.
When bubbles appear on the surface and don’t fill in again with raw batter when popped it is time to flip them.
Serve hot with fresh fruit, honey, whipped cream, or your choice of toppings.
