Fresh Whipped Cream Recipe and Favorite Friday Blog Links

I can't believe it is already Friday again.  It seems like time is flying by.  Now on to  Favorite Friday Blog Links of the week.  Take a look at these great bloggers.  I hope you enjoy them.





I hope that you have enjoyed reading my Favorite Friday Blog Links.  I loved reading them.  It would be great if you would follow these great blogs also.  Just click on the link and follow in whatever way you can.
Now, for today's recipe.

Yesterday, I told you that I was going to give you a recipe for Fresh Whipped CreamFresh Whipped Cream is very simple to make, and it seems that people are so used to buying it in a can or just buying Cool Whip, that making Whipped Cream is a becoming a lost art.  So for those of you who do not know how to make whipped cream, here is a very basic recipe.

Fresh Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

1 pt. whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar (confectioners) or Splenda or Stevia in the Raw
1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Pour whipping cream into a medium to large sized bowl.

Beat the cream with an electric mixer, about 3 to 4 minutes, until it starts to become firm.

Then add the powdered sugar and continue beating.



Once the powdered sugar is mixed in add the vanilla.


Continue beating with electric mixer until your whipped cream is firm, but smooth.  About another minute or two.


You don't want to over beat it because it will turn to butter.


Let me know what you think of making your own Fresh Whipping Cream.  It is so good, I love it.  I always love hearing from you.

Enjoy!!!

  1. That's actually the only way I make whipped cream .. lol - unless I make Irish Coffees, then I use the whipped cream in a can, which you "spray" on top in a nice pattern. Have a great weekend, Debi!

    1. Hi Linda,
      I have friends who have never made whipped creams. They only buy the can or Cool whip. You are a fantastic cook, I would expect nothing less. I love reading your recipes. They are better then reading any magazine. Have a great weekend.

    1. Hey Helen,
      I have tried them. I have one in fact. I do like it, but I still like making whipped cream the old fashioned way. It would probably make the pie look prettier, I hadn't thought about using it for a whole pie. Have a great week, and thanks for the reminder.

  8. I never realized that there were people who didn't know how to make whipped cream! Until I moved to the US, it's the only kind of cream I'd ever heard of; it's one of the things I learned when I was in elementary school, and I'm not even a particularly good cook!

    1. Hi Susan,
      I learned how to make it as a kid also. We have so much here that is convenience food, whipped cream is one of them. I think sometimes people think that it might be hard to make. I just wanted to do this post to take the mystery of whipping cream away. Thanks so much for visiting me.
