Crème Fraîche Is The Perfect Clotted Cream Substitute For Tea Time
An excellent substitute for clotted cream during tea time is crème fraîche, whose high fat content creates a rich texture and helps hold scone layers up.
This swap boosts the visual appeal of your baked goods, adding a pop of color and allowing the layers of baked goods to stand tall and proud.
Compared to crème fraîche, however, clotted cream is subtle. Crème fraîche tastes distinctly tangy due to the cultures it contains, so keep its tart flavor profile in mind.
Slather your teatime scones with crème fraîche or use it as a topping for fruit. It will provide a creamy mouthfeel with an extra tang.
