Devonshire Cream Recipe
Looking for a Devonshire Cream recipe? Both clotted cream and Devonshire are interchangable in meaning. Making your own cream can be tricky, but when successful, it is a rewarding feeling. If you can't find unpasteurized milk or are limited on time, you can find real Devonshire cream sold at specialty shops or online stores. Though not as full and rich, unsweetened whipped cream is an acceptable substitute.
