Food Network���s clotted cream and The Culinary Life���s quick and easy Devonshire cream are two easy clotted cream recipes. The first uses one ingredient and takes five minutes of preparation time, while the second is a cheater's method that yields a good Devonshire-style clotted cream in less time than the traditional recipe.Continue Reading
To make the Food Network���s recipe, begin with 2 cups of pasteurized cream, but not ultra-pasteurized. Set a coffee filter basket, lined with a coffee filter, inside a strainer, over a bowl. Pour the cream almost to the top of the filter, and refrigerate for 2 hours. The whey passes through the filter into the bowl, and the clotted cream remains in the filter. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the clotted cream down, and leave for another 2 hours to allow more whey to separate. Repeat this process until the clotted cream in the filter reaches the consistency of soft cream cheese.
To prepare The Culinary Life���s recipe, combine one 8-ounce package of room-temperature cream cheese with 1/2 cup of room-temperature sour cream. Beat well with a hand mixer until fully combined. Beat in 1 teaspoon of sugar at a time until it reaches the desired sweetness. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.Learn more about Desserts
