Homemade Clotted Cream & Scones

Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

in anticipation of victoria day long weekend I wanted to share with you one of britain's most delectable traditions, clotted cream.

As Victoria Day approaches I thought it very fitting to let you in on just exactly how to make homemade clotted cream to taste exactly the way the British would enjoy it. It's a long slow cooking process, but not to worry there really isn't any work involved whatsoever. It's just is a waiting game to allow enough time to toast the cream to a sweet nutty creamy texture.

There are a few treats that I do splurge on once in a while and this is one of them! Clotted Cream is nutty, sweet, and undeniably creamy. I love it and it's perfect to enjoy any time of the year on a freshly baked scone with an afternoon tea.

Spread this beautiful homemade clotted cream with strawberry jam on one of Urban Baker Co.'s Original Sweet & Buttery Scones and you will have a beautiful combination!  

If you make this Clotted Cream recipe, please tag me on social media.  Don't forget to check out our Original Sweet & Buttery Scones in the shop that will go perfectly with that clotted cream.  I will do my best to answer any questions and would love to get your comments.
