Thick, calorie-laden Cornish clotted cream on scones with strawberry jam

This is what Ben suggested we treated ourselves to after our coastal walk yesterday (Ben and I are on that free holiday in Cornwall which he won in Dorset Cereals' Spin the Bottle competition).

So the two of us sat there, in the tea garden of a sweet little watermill deep in a wooded valley, demolishing a huge luscious cream tea comprising two huge home-made scones, thick clotted cream and strawberry jam - plus a massive pot of tea with milk.

And, as you can imagine, I was doing internal cartwheels of delight.

And there was no guilt afterwards - just a quiet comment from Ben about having just done a "major challenge". But no guilt or regret.

When I get back home I'll post up the photos on my Facebook page!

PS For those of you that don't know what Cornish clotted cream is, it's like the thickest, almost solid whipped double / heavy cream you can imagine - almost as solid as butter. Cream doesn't get any creamier than clotted cream!!!!
