The Clay Pot Cafe


It’s not often that you get a sconewich style Devonshire Tea. At The Clay Pot Cafe in Blaxland, at the foot of the Blue Mountains, you can get exactly that. Boasting six flavours of scones the day I visit, my scones arrive warm and already dressed with jam and cream. It’s a difficult decision when faced with the choice of pumpkin, apple and cinnamon, vanilla, date, orange and poppyseed, and fruit varieties. I narrow it down to two flavours as these babies are pricey at $6.50 a pop and are on the small size, considering the price. Getting out of my comfort zone, I opt for an apple/cinnamon and orange/poppyseed. The scones are indeed flavoursome and moist, and the blackcurrant jam tasty and better than average. They also certainly look impressive, but putting good looks aside, I find this particular sconewich impractical. I prefer my cream to stay thickly whipped until it dissolves in my belly. Put cream between two halves of a warm scone, and it has no chance of staying firm – mine melts before my eyes. At least the cream is freshly whipped, but not for long!
