Hey there bakers,
Whipped cream is a key component in the pastry kitchen.
With endless possibilities, it is easy added to any pie topping, cake filling, ice cream sundae, or cookie sammie. Or just eat it by itself.... The choice is yours!
Basic whipped cream
Yields: 1 1/2 cup whipped cream
Equipment needed: Standing kitchen mixer with whisk attachment, measuring cups/spoons, spatula
Pro tip: 1 hour before making whipped cream, place the standing kitchen mixer in bowl in the freezer. A cold bowl will ensure a full whipping of the cream.
In the cold standing mixer kitchen bowl:
Add 1 cup heavy cream
Start whipping on low speed for 3 minutes. Increase mixer speed to medium speed until it is frothy
Stop mixer. Now, add:
Continue mixing on medium speed until soft peaks form
You will know this because the whisk attachment will 'hold' a soft peak
Use immediately or store in container in the fridge
