Cornwall and Devon, two of the biggest dairy producing regions in the UK, are both famous for their clotted cream. Each region has their own way of serving the “Cream Tea,” which consists of a pot of tea served with scones, clotted cream and jam.
In Cornwall, the scones are spread with the jam first, followed by the clotted cream, allowing for more cream than jam.
In Devon, the cream comes first, followed by a dollop of jam, a very aesthetically pleasing way of serving a scone.
Either way, a freshly baked scone slathered with clotted cream and jam is one of the most irresistible things you’ll ever try. It’s reason enough to travel all the way to Devon and Cornwall to partake of this classic British delicacy at its source.
