I a rice pudding last night and as a treat i bought some Elmlea double cream to pour over the top. It was totally delicious, I am so pleased that there this fantastic product has a place in the dooyoo catalogue in order for me to tell you all my experience of this cream substitute. Elmlea became available in shops for purchase in 1984. This was the first product of its kind, offering a cream substitute, bit with the same great delicious flavour as cream. Elmlea is produced using buttermilk and vegetable oils. This is great method is beneficial for a number of reasons. Firstly Elmlea has a much longer life than normal cream. If left un opened this ...

I bought this the other day as I was shocked that it was cheaper than sainsbury's own double cream. I got 284ml (not sure why that's not rounded up or down) for 75p which is very cheap. I couldn't believe that sainsbury's own was a fair bit more expensive. This double cream claims to have 55% less fat than other double creams. I'm not entirely sure how that works, but it's an added bonus in my eyes as I would have bought it purely based on price anyway. I used this to make a cheese and onion tart, and it worked really well. It was quite thick and poured really easily and the tart came out tasting great, but not too creamy, it also felt ...

Elmlea is a regular purchase in my house. I use it quite a bit in cooking and I always use this to make my ice cream, I have also used it when I fancied making a trifle but I had no fresh cream available. Elmlea is made by the Unilever, it was launched in 1984 and was the first dairy cream alternative. My mother used to buy this and I always referred to it as plastic cream, so it is only in the last couple of years that I have really started using it and realised how much like cream it tastes. It is a substitute cream available in 6 varieties, single, single light, Double or Double Light, whipping or squirty cream. I always buy the Double cream ... Read the complete review

Elmlea double cream is bought a lot in my household as we are pudding mad and our evening meal is not the same unless a pudding is served, my daughter looks at me gone out if there is not so much as a piece of cake!! I bought two 284ml pots for £1 at asda and the use by date is not until aug so it i great for keeping in the fridge for a later date, but you must use it within 5 days after opening, which in my household is not a problem. You can also freeze the cream, but you will need to whip it first. I served this tonight alongside a rhubard crumble I made as it makes a nice change to custard sometimes, I feel cream is fresher and cooler in the ... Read the complete review

How silly am i? I thought Elmlea was fresh cream? Until last week I actually thought Elmlea was fresh cream. I always wondered by Elmlea was cheaper than asda's own and now I know why -Elmlea is a substitute -but its a good one at that. Elmlea has a really long shelf life and can last for over a month and the best thing about it is that it costs only around 70p per 284ml jar. The lid is a foil lid which needs to be ripped open and once it is you cannot reseal it. What can you do with Elmlea? I normally pour mine over warm chocolate fudge cake..yum yum or use it when cooking and it works fine. You can use it in whatever way you ... Read the complete review
