Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite pancakes; a simple recipe with a royal outcome

The recipe for Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite pancakes has finally been revealed, reports “Daily Star”. The result is said to be so delicious that the former US president Dwight Eisenhower has also become a fan of these pancakes, who visited Elizabeth with his wife Marnie when she was only 34 years old. The recipe is described in a letter sent by the queen to the president and published in a book in 2013.

According to Elizabeth II in the letter, this recipe is intended for 16 people, but she emphasizes that by making a smaller quantity, the Queen simply uses less flour and milk, while using the other ingredients in the same quantities.


  • 4 teaspoons of flour;
  • 2 cups of milk;
  • 2 eggs;
  • 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar;
  • 2 teaspoons of soda;
  • 3 teaspoons of tartar powder (purchased in pastry shops);
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter.


Mix together the eggs, sugar and one teacup of milk. Then add flour to them and mix everything thoroughly. At the end, add the remaining milk.

Add soda and tartar powder, as well as melted butter.

Then heat the pan and use butter on it instead of oil.

Pour two to three large spoonfuls of batter onto the pan (make sure the batter doesn’t stick together if you want individual pancakes). When the butter starts bubbling on the surface, flip the pancakes upside down. They will be ready when both sides are lightly browned.

Serve with fruit, berries, maple syrup, chocolate or jam.
