Recipe: Homemade Whipped Cream

May 17, 2008

Here is a recipe for homemade whipped cream which will make Reddi and Cool Whip look like sour cream. It is very similar in consistency and taste to what is served at Peter Luger’s in Brooklyn, NY.

Ingredients Required:

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4-1/2 cup sugar (depending on personal taste)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Electric powered whisk


1. Assemble the ingredients


2. Pour 2 cups of heavy whipping cream into a bowl


3. Begin to whip cream on medium setting (or if no moderate settings exist, whip on low)


4. Continue whipping cream until the cream begins to thicken


5. Add the vanilla extract, whip vanilla into cream


6. Add sugar


7. Continue whipping cream until it can hold a soft peak


8. Continue whipping until it thickens to your personal preference, do not whip too much, as it will thicken into a butter-like consistency.
