Just in case you’ve overlooked the queenly clue in the title of my recipe, I recreated this splendidly simple, yet rather indulgent wartime dish purely for the delectation of Queen Elizabeth II! After all, it is Her Majesty's most favourite afternoon teatime treat, or anytime treat as my research revealed.
Oh, and before it completely slips one’s mind, Miss Windsor bids Her Majesty an extremely jovial “official” birthday of Trooping the Colour – this year it takes place on Saturday the 13th June 2020.
Also, following the incredibly sad news of the one and only Forces' Sweetheart who passed away at the grand ol' age of 103 on the 18th June 2020, I hereby dedicate this recipe to the magnificent DAME VERA LYNN.
