What to do when you’re craving clotted cream…

In principal I’m not a huge fan of baking, mostly because I’m so bad at it. I can’t be bothered with the tedium of exact measurements. So when I found a jar of English “luxury” clotted cream at the health food store (don’t ask) I caved, bought it, and then realized crap, I’m going to have to bake something to eat it on because as much as shamelessly as I love dairy products, eating clotted cream with a spoon would be a new low. Luckily Bartlett’s Farm sells one of those prepared mixes for scones (wouldn’t Sandra Lee be proud!) so all I had to do was add butter, milk, and some dried apricots (fancy!), roll out the dough, cut into triangles, pop them in the oven, yank’em out, douse them in clotted cream and strawberry rhubarb jam, and sink my teeth into creamy, salty, fruity, tangy goodness. I still have a half jar of clotted cream left though…creamer for coffee? yoghurt replacement? I’m about to get so fat.

  2. Clotted cream is something I had once during a fancy afternoon tea, and then I bought it once for my own kitchen to recreate the effect. Two things I remember: it expires very quickly, and it’s delicious. It’s a shame it doesn’t have much of a presence in the States, because like you said, add some jam and a scone and you’ve got one heck of a fun way to become fat.
