 Easy Homemade Whip Cream Recipe

One of my favorite splurges is homemade whip cream! I think it puts the pre-made stuff you can purchase in a can or the cool whip version to shame. It is so simple to make, plus if you grab one of these whip cream canisters then its even easier and you can make fun flavors.

What is great about homemade whip cream is that you can add it to just about any dessert and suddely your friends and family think you are a master baker. You do not have to let them know how simple it really is.

The really easy way to make this is with a whip cream canister (see below for details on that). You can however, also make it with a standard mixer.

Here is how to make whip cream:

Whipped cream 1

Ingredients:

1 Cup Heavy Cream (chilled)

2 tbs Powder Sugar

2 tsp of Vanilla Extract (or whatever flavorings you like –  rum extract is one of my favorites! If your making Lemon cake, try adding lemon extract, etc. )

(Note – these measurments are just one recipe, I make mine to taste. Sample a little and make it more or less sweet according to your families tastes).

I like to make sure that the bowl that I beat my whip cream in is chilled too, it seems to whip up better when everything is cold.

Add your Cream to your mixer bowl. Start to beat on med. speed, while adding powder sugar and flavoring. Then turn your mixer up a notch and whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, if you want the best texture.

The best thing about homemade whip cream is experimenting.  I have had batches that turned out better then others, but never had a bad batch yet.  One of my favorite shortcut tricks is to make a boxed spice cake (so easy right) and then serve it warm with a drizzle of caramel syrup and topped off with the homemade whip cream made with rum extract instead of vanilla. Your guests will think you went to great lengths for them making that dessert!

And my all time favorite, add a BIG dollop of your homemade whip cream to your coffee (rather then creamer). Mix it in to the coffee (like you would creamer) and it comes very close to heaven in a cup!

You can also buy these Aluminum Whipped Cream dispensers starting at around $28 here. The way that these work is that you add in the whip cream and sweetener (the Torani syrups work well) and then add whip its to actually make whip cream in them. They are such an easy and great way to make fresh whip cream in minutes!
