Since I promised to post the "clotted cream" recipe today, that's what I am going to post. It is fairly easy and not exactly clotted cream, but it makes an easy substitute in my opinion. Is it the same taste as clotted cream? Eh, not exactly, but it works for me.
"Clotted Cream" (found on Epicurious)
- 8 oz. Mascarpone cheese
- 1 cup (240 ml) heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 or 2 Tbsp. white sugar
- Beat all the ingredients together until mixture holds its shape and looks like softly whipped cream. If you don't have a mixer, use beaters, because otherwise your arms will ache. It takes a while to whip it to the consistency.
Yield: Approx, 1 - 2 cups
As I said, this isn't real clotted cream, but it does taste good. It isn't super fluffy or really dense, somewhere inbetween on texture. I hope you all try out this recipe and definitely comment on how it goes. I hope you all feel well and have a spectacular day!
