Whipped Cream

Use this fluffy whipped cream from pastry chef Sarabeth Levine's "Sarabeth's Bakery: From My Hands to Yours" cookbook to top her Triple-Chocolate Chocolate Pudding.

  • yield: Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream, preferably pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized), chilled
  • 3 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • Seeds from 1/4 Plumped Vanilla Beans, or 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Cook's Note

Whipped cream can be made a few hours ahead of time and kept refrigerated until ready to use; lightly whisk before serving.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place a medium bowl and beaters (or whisk) in freezer until very cold, 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Prepare an ice-water bath. Remove bowl from freezer and set in ice-water bath; add heavy cream. Fit the beaters into a handheld mixer and mix on high speed until cream is lightly thickened and beater leaves a trail on the surface.

  3. Step 3

    Gradually add sugar and vanilla and continue beating until soft peaks form.
