Drop scones? Since the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the internet has been abuzz with her drop scone recipe, which was sent as a letter long ago to President Eisenhower.
What is a drop scone? Drop scones are very similar to American pancakes. We are fortunate enough to have a written version of the very recipe that Queen Elizabeth II wrote down with her own hand. The recipe calls for the use of all-purpose flour. However, for people with gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease, that is not an option.
Good news! We converted Queen Elizabeth II’s drop scone recipe into a gluten-free version. It is tasty, and the Queen’s drop scone gluten-free recipe is easy to make. The secret to success is Panhandle Milling’s Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour Blend.
1 ½ cup (2 teacups) Panhandle Milling Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour Blend
4 Tbsp. granulated sugar
¾ cup (1 teacup) milk
1 whole egg
2 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cream of tartar
2 Tbsp. melted butter
Yields about 10 drop scones.
