History's Interesting Bits: A Royal Breakfast

This lovely gem is from the National Archives. Story is that in 1959 Queen Elizabeth entertained President Eisenhower at the Balmoral Castle in Edinburgh. At the event the Queen made drop scones using a family recipe. A year later a letter arrived for the President with the annotated copy of the recipe enclosed. 

How sweet is that?  And now you can be a royal too. Or, at least eat like one.
