This is an easy one today, y’all! We’re making Homemade Sweetened Whipped Cream – Forget about buying that stuff that comes in a can or tub! Seriously, you will have no excuse after seeing this recipe! It’s quick and easy – with no weird chemicals!!
Whether you top Strawberry Shortcake, garnish a pumpkin pie or add a dollop for contrast to a chocolate torte …. this is a must have recipe!
That’s it! See! I told y’all it was easy!! No more excuses! 🙂
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tbsp. granulated or powdered sugar
- Chill a medium bowl.
- After the bowl is chilled, beat the whipping cream and sugar in the chilled bowl with an electric mixer on HIGH speed until stiff.
- Use the Homemade Sweetened Whipped Cream to top your favorite desserts!
**Note - I prefer powdered sugar over granulated sugar - but both will do the job. You can also add ¼ tsp. of vanilla extract for an extra special dollop! 🙂 Also, take care not to over beat - or you may end up with butter! If you do not have an electric mixer, you can use a balloon-type whisk and whisk this by hand. It is a bit more work, but it is not terribly difficult!
