Whipped cream has a whole host of uses. Whether it’s smothering a pie in the good stuff or topping your dessert with an extra sweet treat, it seems as though there are a number of ways to enjoy the good stuff. Thankfully, this little trick will give you the best whipped cream every time.
Whipping The Base
To start, you need to whip up your heavy cream. Hand mixers are great for if you’re efficient while traditional whisks can be perfect if you’re strong. It’s best to increase the speed of an electric mixer gradually as the cream thickens to avoid any mess. Continue whisking the mixture until the whisk starts to leave soft peaks in the cream.
The Secret Ingredient
Now, it’s time to add the special ingredient. The secret? Sour cream. Yes, all you need to do is add ¼ of a cup of sour cream for every 1 ½ cups of heavy cream that you’ve used. All you need to do is continue mixing the cream until it’s fully incorporated into the mixture. Just be sure not to go too far.
Making Sweet Treats
The best thing about adding sour cream to your mixture is the ingredient adds a level of tang to the taste. This can be the perfect accompaniment to a whole host of desserts, such as strawberry shortcakes, berries, chocolate or plain cakes, cobblers, and even your favorite pies. It might not be long before you find new tastes you’ve never got to enjoy before.
Heading to the kitchen is a wonderful way to unwind and whip up some delicious meals. Now, you can do both at once as you add a special trick to your whipped cream that will give you the best version of the stuff – every time. Who knew it could be so easy?
