A recipe for pancakes sent to a U.S. President by the Queen after the latter fell in love with the menu has gone viral.
The Queen is dead, she will be buried today and tons of global VIPs will attend the last moments of Queen Elizabeth II in this life when they put her body in her final resting place.
But who would have believed that a recipe that the Queen likes so much is now part of the viral world?
As the world remembers Queen Elizabeth II, she is reminded of her legacy as the British Royal Family’s leader for 70 years, which apparently includes her drop scone recipe.
In 1959, the Queen hosted former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his family at Balmoral Castle, and she made the drop scones using her family’s recipes.
Drop scones, also known as Scotch pancakes, are a type of flat, fluffy cake that is traditionally served with tea.
The story goes that the U.S. president was so impressed with the dish that a year later the Queen sent him the recipe by mail.
Since it was a ‘gift’, is was made publicly available on the the National Archives. Amazing.
