I'm glad I found this recipe on your site. I've been making this recipe for at least 15 years, but recently lost the magazine it was printed in. My British born husband and I love real Devon clotted cream. This is a close second. It has become my family's Easter dessert and my go-to dessert for get togethers. Recently started using plain greek yogurt in place of sour cream. Everyone still raves about it.
