I cannot understand why people modify a recipe, make substitutions that don't work, and then give the original recipe a poor rating!!!!!

Most helpful critical review

Too salty/cheesy tasting, and far too liquidy. A proper Devon cream should be thicker (like whipped butter), and slightly sweet.

Very easy to make and delicious. Reminds me of my time in England. I had been craving some good cream to have with my scones and tea and this hit the spot. Yum!
