In this story, I hope to accomplish two things. a) Get you to try some places you may never have thought of (or heard of) for pancakes here in SE Minnesota. And ii) get you to try making the Queen's Pancakes. That's right, QE 2 herself, Betsy's Pancakes.

Scroll down for the 10 pancakes you didn't know you needed to try something new this weekend, but scroll not much for the Queen's Deliciousness in Roundish Form!

Queen Elizabeth IIs Pancake Recipe

Note: She calls 'em scones, but apparently, that's pancakes to us.



4 teacups flour (teacup is about 3/4 cup)
4 tablespoons caster sugar (or granulated sugar)
2 teacups milk
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons bicarbonate soda (or baking soda)
3 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons melted butter


"Beat eggs, sugar, and about half the milk together, add flour, and mix well together, adding remainder of milk as required, also bicarbonate and cream of tartar, fold in the melted butter." (Source)

That's it. You're on your own for the rest. What's that? You don't know how to do the rest? Well, you'll have to Google it, the Queen can't do everything for you, darling.

If you do try it, please, let me know how it goes! The email address is down there after the gallery and such.

All 37 Minnesota Restaurants that Have Been Featured on the Food Network

Many Minnesota restaurants have been featured on the Food Network over the years. Some have closed now, but I checked out the Food Networks website, the Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives website, and TVFoodMaps.com to find all of the Minnesota restaurants that have been featured on their channel in the past and found these 37 (in no particular order) that are still open.
