  • ½ cup (120 g) heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons (16 g) powdered sugar
  • 8 ounce (224 g) mascarpone cheese
  • ½ cup (115 g) sour cream


  • Place all ingredients in a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip all ingredients together until fully combined.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week. For best use, allow it to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.


  1. Store leftover clotted cream in the fridge for up to a week. Let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.
  2. For an authentic taste of British clotted cream, you can buy some online. Make sure that they come from Devon, Cornwall or Somerset.
  3. Keep the heavy cream cold before you start whipping it. It won't thicken if it isn't cold.
  4. If you can't find mascarpone cheese by any chance, you may replace it with cream cheese although there'll be a difference in taste and texture.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
