I've been using this one since found online a few years back. Nothing can replace true clotted cream but still, this is a very good substitute.


  1. Fold vanilla into sour cream. Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form the fold in the sugar. Fold this mixture into the sour cream/vanilla mixture.

I have never tried real clotted cream before, but this was amazing! I served this with homemade cinnamon scones and tasted just like strawberry shortcake! YUM!

I really loved this recipe, it was so easy and it tasted great. It was ready when I was. I added homemade vanilla that had seeds in good in this. The cream was perfection, really enjoyed the thickness, creaminess and flavor. It was so silky, just perfect in my strawberry parfaits. I garnished with a vanilla bean and coarse sugar combo. Thank you so much for sharing a new favorite.

I have never had clotted cream before, so I have nothing to compare this to. I thought this recipe was soooooooo yummy. It was very fast and easy to whip up. I served it over fresh strawberries and loved the slight tanginess of the sour cream with the sweetness of the whipped cream. Made for a very elegant and delicious topping. I will be making this often. Thanks for sharing! Made for June, 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.
