The Recipe

Yesterday I wrote about the scone recipe Queen Elizabeth sent to the Eisenhowers.  Thanks to my cousin Lyne, I now have a copy of that recipe.  For those of you who might also be interested, here it is:

If you wish to make the queen's scones, I've typed the ingredients and instructions below.
  • 4 teacups flour
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 teacups milk
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 teaspoons bi-carbonate soda
  • 3 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
Beat eggs, sugar and about half the milk together, add flour, and mix well together adding remainder of milk as required, also bi-carbonate and cream of tartar, fold in the melted butter.

Thanks for the detective work Lyne.  I really appreciate it.
