Rice pudding?

A spoon and the tub.

Spoon into mouth.

Make more scones? You can also freeze it if you have loads. Or make icecream?

Still reeling from the concept of “using up” clotted cream. It’s nectar from the Gods themselves.

TooGood2BeTrue Sun 21-Jun-20 13:08:10

What TheEmoji said. Or forget the spoon and just lick it out.

Just eat it - with strawberries.

It freezes really well.

A big blob on ice cream!

Ha, I came to advise that all you need is a spoon too!grin

You’re doing scones wrong if you’ve got leftover clotted cream.
Get yourself a big spoon and go for it.

I used mine up making lemonade scones. It's just self raising flour, lemonade (or sprite, 7 up or whatever) and cream.

They don't rise very much but are delicious- keep some of the cream to have with them

Also I have used up whipped cream by mashing into potatoes smile

NutshellBound Sun 21-Jun-20 14:28:50

What was I thinking! I can eek this out at a couple of spoons a day and have now been enabled by Mumsnet to do so. It's a huge tub best before Tuesday grin

Yeah I would just go straight for a spoon.

Failing that scones and jam.

Tiddy pasty absolutely gorgeous a Devon tradition. So slices of potato and onion on a pastry base then blobs of clotted cream, season add pastry top then bake in the oven it’s delicious hot or cold

Creamy pasta

Some lovely recipes from bbc recipes here

hedgehogger1 Sun 21-Jun-20 18:44:38

Just eat it with a spoon

Why is it only Rhoddas you can buy at supermarkets? No supermarket own brands or cheaper versions. I googled how to make my own, it was easy but an incredible waste of energy (oven on very very low for a long long time)

TheEmojiFormerlyKnownAsPrince Sun 21-Jun-20 18:48:57

I would not wasted clotted cream in savoury items!

Just had Eton Mess. Yum

Quickerthanavicar Sun 21-Jun-20 18:52:23

a spoon

BillywigSting Sun 21-Jun-20 18:53:03

Clotted cream in pasta is a colosal waste.

Have with some berries sprinkled with sugar and left 15 minutes.

Buy more scones?

Cranachan? Bit early for good raspberries mind you

TrobadoraBeatrice Sun 21-Jun-20 18:56:24

Definitely in rice pudding! Just stir in a huge spoonful at the end of cooking on the hob, or there are a few recipes online for baked rice pudding with clotted cream.

Cummingsandgoings Sun 21-Jun-20 18:56:56

I've made fudge from the Rhoddas website before to use up a couple of tubs I bought for 9p each in Asda. Only thing is, when you see what goes into fudge you can never eat it without guilt again!

Also any scone, muffin or cake recipe that has greek yoghurt, milk, creme fraiche, sour cream as an ingredient would probably work fine with clotted cream if you really do just want to use it up - just give it a bit of a stir and slacken off with a small slosh of milk.

Might also be nice on top of porridge with a sprinkle of brown sugar - maybe fresh raspberries too.

Spooned on top of home-made mushroom soup?

I bought raspberries from Tesco for my Eton Mess.

They were really sweet and plump! Gorgeous
