Queen Elizabeth II’s Drop Scones Recipe – Tricks and Tips

Queen Elizabeth II's Drop Scones Recipe

There are plenty of ways to enjoy these delicious drop scones depending on your preferences. Rye recommends classics like butter, jam, golden syrup, maple syrup, and fresh berries. Given their similarity to pancakes, pretty much anything that goes with the classic breakfast dish works well here too. That being said, you might want to channel the queen and keep your toppings restrained, in order to savor these delicate drop scones for what they are. On more traditional scones, Her Majesty was fond of sweet jam and clotted cream, as shared by former royal chef Darren McGrady (via New York Post).

If you have leftovers, Rye advises storing them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to three days and reheating them before digging in. All the same, she shares, “it would be my recommendation to only make as many as you need and store any remaining batter in the fridge, as they are always at their best when fresh!” Alternatively, she adds that the drop scones can be frozen as long as they are properly wrapped.
