Butchart Gardens Devon Style Cream

Butchart Gardens Devon Style Cream Table

Devonshire cream or clotted cream is made from cream from the county of Devon in England. Like Champagne, until you are using real cream from Devon, you are not really having Devonshire cream. When we attended the Butchart Gardens tea, the menu stated our scones course include a Devon Style cream. This recipe gives you the ability to have this cream at home for those of us not in England. 🙂 It is a very simple recipe where you combine just a few ingredients. It’s a nice alternative from standard whipping cream, which also tastes great on scones. 

First start by whipping the cream. This will give your cream a nice fluffy fullness instead of liquid-like. Once the cream starts to stiffen, add the powdered sugar and continue to whip. Once the cream is fairly stiff, remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the sour cream (or plain yogurt if you prefer). Spoon the cream into a serving bowl. If it will be a while before eating, be sure to keep the cream in the refrigerator.
