Whipped Cream mmmmm…

Real Whipped Cream

Real whipped cream is such a delicious and fancy touch to any dessert. For a long time I actually thought I didn’t like whipped cream. It just didn’t have any substance to it and I didn’t like the aerated mouthfeel in combination with rich, dense desserts like ice cream or custard. I only recently realized what I didn’t like was canned whipped cream. Don’t get me wrong, I usually have a can in the fridge for impromptu Strawberry Shortcakes and Daddy and the kids like it on ice cream and other desserts. I just didn’t care for it all that much. So, the other night I decided to make our shortcakes extra special by making real whipped cream with the kids. It didn’t seem like it could be that hard and in fact it was so delightfully easy that I can’t think of having it any other way now.

Whipped Cream

makes about 2 cups
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  1. Combine all three ingredients in a bowl and using a mixer with a whisk attachment, whip until doubled in size and soft peaks form.

Soft peaks mean when you turn the mixer off and pull it out, the cream should stand up a little at that point and then fold over.

No more tastes!

    Does this mean you’ve joined the ranks of whipped cream squirters to better experience the aerated mouthfeel, or will you keep yourself confined to squirting it on food and ice cream?

    I am definately a whip cream spooner. I like to heap it on. If I have the squirt stuff it usually goes straight into the kids’ mouths, no actual food required. -Katie

    […] whipped up some whipped cream (literally) and put it in a tupperware to take with us and thus, the Thanksgiving pie was saved. […]
