Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe

Whipped Cream is so easy to make and a wonderful addition to so many things. I can’t imagine a strawberry shortcake without it. A warm mug of hot cocoa is splendid with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Berries and cream are stupendous! And fluffy pancakes with whipped cream and syrup … whoa Nellie!

Like I said, Whipped Cream is easy to make, but I will say I’ve messed up more batches than I’d like to admit due to getting distracted and allowing the cream to go pass the billowy stage to the bumpy stage. It can happen so very quick. So my tip is to be watchful and don’t wander away. Watch the cream whip and you won’t have any trouble. Billowy goodness will appear right before your eyes in no time.

A few tips for making fresh Whipped Cream:

  • Keep things cold. Cream whips better when it’s cold and even when the bowl is cold. If you have time, chill your mixing bowl for about 15 minutes.
  • Avoid over-whipping. Be watchful and whip just until soft peaks form.
  • Ultra-pasteurized whipped cream is more difficult to whip. If using it instead of regular pasteurized whipped cream, make sure to begin with cold cream and a chilled mixing bowl.

These recipes are delicious with a dollop of whipped cream:
