One such interesting story surfaced on Twitter and caught the attention of foodies online. Twitter user and historian Michael Beschloss took to the platform to share the time when Queen Elizabeth personally shared her iconic scones recipe in 1960.

On January 24, 1960, Queen Elizabeth II had written a letter to the then US President Dwight D. Eisenhower after hosting him for a visit. The letter is available in UK’s National Archives and was shared on Twitter by Beschloss.

“Dear Mr. President, Seeing a picture of you in today’s newspaper standing in front of a barbecue grill reminded me that I had never sent you the recipe of the drop scones which I promised you at Balmoral. I now hasten to do so, and I do hope you will find them successful,” wrote the late Queen in her letter.
