What can I put clotted cream and jam on now I've eaten all the scones?

My family has eaten a packet of scones but there's still clotted cream and jam left. Not going to the shops for a while - any good ideas for recreating the cream tea experience with stuff I might have in already?
I tried it with white toast and it was quite nice. I've used crumpets as a pancake substitute before. Got no madeira cake or anything, sadly.

Digestive biscuits are fab

Make rice pudding with the clotted cream or ice cream and add jam 😀

A spoon.

Embarrassing but I’m afraid I just eat them both with a spoon once the scones have run out

Rich tea biscuits, weetabix, Infact ANY biscuits 😂, plain non salted breadsticks, cup cakes, bread, rice / oat cakes, cream crackers, spoon is by far the best though 🐷

Sadly I don't have the time or skill to make scones!
Most of the bread I have is granary. I guess that could be ok....

biscuits; either whole or bashed up and layered with the cream and jam.
Shortbread fingers, digestives or hobnobs would be my preferred choices. Granola or a nice muesli might be nice layered up too.

your husband?

If you can't be faffed with making scones, scotch pancakes would work a treat.

Or a spoon.grin

A spoon would work just fine!

Make French toast for breakfast tomorrow with your bread, then top with the jam & cream.

Yeah put it on your husband’s naked body.
Not on a really hairy bit.

Rice pudding

Fresh French loaf

On top of cold toast, but marmalade and clotted cream is better

You do not need skills for scones. They are really hard to fuck up.

RoseAndRose Fri 22-May-20 17:15:15

DH/DP

or if you don't have one handy then a spoon

Thick white bread...it's traditional in Devon
