Delightful Whipped Cream in an Array of Flavors


This Will Change How You Bake!

Posted on the wall in our test kitchen is the standard recipe for whipped cream. We use it so often that most of us have it memorized.

Flavored whipped cream is common whipped cream with a flavor and sometimes a color added in place of vanilla. Enough stabilizer is added that the whipped cream will remain stable for at least four hours between whippings.

Use flavored whipped cream on desserts from strawberry shortcakes to cakes to banana splits. Often you will use flavored whipped cream instead of ice cream.

This is the recipe on our wall in the test kitchen.

Ingredients

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 to 2 teaspoons of flavor

2 tablespoons meringue powder

Directions

1. Measure the whipping cream into the bowl of your stand-type mixer. Use the whip attachment.

2. Add the meringue powder and flavor. Start with a lessor amount of flavor and add more to taste as you whip. Commercial flavors are usually more concentrated than those in most stores.

3. Whip the cream at high speed until stiff peaks form.

Heavy whipping cream is necessary. We use 40% fat whipping cream—the brand is Darigold and we get it from Sam’s Club.

You may make chocolate whipped cream substituting about 1/4 cup good quality cocoa for the flavor. Good quality cocoa is critical.

Whipped cream can be rewhipped. The above recipe with quality whipped cream can usually be held for four hours. In a warm room or on a warm dessert, it may not last that long.

Using Cream Cheese in Your Whipped Cream

When we use cream cheese, it’s two ounces for two cups of whipping cream. Cream the sugar into cream cheese before adding the other ingredients to avoid tiny lumps of cream cheese in your frosting. More cream cheese can be used for a richer, stronger flavor.
