Link Love: Diamond Jubilee

Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 60th year on the throne. The celebration comes to a crescendo this weekend with The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. It’s airing (PST) at about 5 a.m. live here in the states.

On the official website you can send the Queen a congratulatory note, also a schedule of events here, and pictures on other official sites.

Here’s a treat! If you’re going to get up early to watch the pageant on TV, why not whip up a batch of scones using the Queen’s own recipe?

So here’s to Queen Elizabeth! Congratulations on your Diamond Jubilee!

I realized that the recipe needed a bit of translation, plus baking temps and times… plus clearer instructions. So here’s that:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

4 “teacups” (cups) flour
4 tablespoons “caster sugar” plain sugar
2 “teacups” milk
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons “bi-carbonate soda” baking soda
3 teaspoons cream of tarter
2 tablespoons melted butter.

Mix the wet ingredients together and sift the dry ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry and mix until just blended. Drop 1/3 cup dollops onto a parchment covered baking tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
