Sounds great - but maybe a bit too sweet for our tastes. The clotted cream is the correct counter to the strawberry jam or cherry conserve which form a part of the cream tea. Neither the scones nor the cream include sugar as the jam is sweet enough. I do know, from my time there, that Americans like to add sugar (or some other sweetener) to just about everything. I could handle (and liked) the doughnuts, but most of the cakes I bought were much too sweet for me - even as a teen.I made the British version of scones. I am a Gordon Ramsey fan. Get his shows on Pluto streaming device, watch him there.
But I would not like your clotted cream. I prefer sweet, whipped for my Strawberry Shortcake. Using my Grandmother’s biscuit recipe.
And LOL, speaking of cream, the worst thing I ever tasted in the USA was so-called 'cream' which came in a spray pack!
