I seem to get this Question Over and Over so please take a moment.
Question: Steve its been in the oven for nearly 12 hours…… but it still seems runny

Please think about it, the fats in Cream are Butter Fats and what happens to butter when it’s hot or cream for that matter, it gets Runny. The Skin on the top is the clots and when it chills in the fridge you will have a Thick clotted Cream on top and a Thinner milkier cream underneath, that is the norm for Clotted Cream, both the top and the bottom layer of the Cream are  Usable parts of clotted Cream.

The Density of the two creams will vary as to how good (or how rich in fat) your original cream was but even the poorer quality creams seem to do OK. So don’t panic, you are on the right track.


  • 1 litre or 2 pints of Double or Thick Cream
  • The cream needs to have at least 35 % Fat
  • The Higher fat content the better the cream
