Easy 1 Ingredient Clotted Cream

Clotted cream is a fun and easy recipe.

It turns scones, toast, crepes, and pancakes into rich and delightful dishes.

it takes only 15 minutes however it is spread out over 25 hours.

A brief overview first.

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees

2. Bake for 12 hours

3. Let cool for 1 hour

4. Refrigerate for 12 hours

5. Lastly, scrape into an elegant jar and serve

Because it takes so long I have found that it is best to start baking at 8 in the morning let cool from 8-9 p.m. Then refrigerate from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. Plus you can have it with breakfast the next morning.

    One of my friends has brought clotted cream with scones to a party, but I have never tried it! Looks nice! :-)

    Clotted cream is used just like butter. For example, instead of putting butter and jam on scones put clotted cream and jam on. Once you try clotted cream it is extremely hard to go back to using butter, because clotted cream is much richer and creamyer.
