Clotted Cream

May 16, 2012

Per Wikipedia, “clotted cream (sometimes called clouted cream or Devonshire cream) is a thick cream made by indirectly heating full-cream cow’s milk using steam or a water bath and then leaving it in shallow pans to cool slowly. During this time, the cream content rises to the surface and forms ‘clots’ or ‘clouts’.It forms an essential part of a cream tea.” This is a typical accompaniment to afternoon scones and tea in England and is really quite delicious. While the recipe that follows is not a true clotted cream, it is still a great addition to your afternoon tea and can be made quickly and painlessly at home.

You will need:

  • 1 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 c Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • Powdered sugar to taste (usually 1-3 T)

Then you will…

  1. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form, just as if making a whipped cream.
  2. Whisk in the yogurt and powdered sugar until just combined.
  3. Store in refrigerator.
