This is our family recipe for whipped cream. I'm surprised it's not already on Zaar. You'll want to use chilled whipping cream, and as a couple of the reviewers pointed out, chill the bowl and beaters too if possible. If you have a kitchenaide mixer, use your wire beater, not the paddle.


  1. Whip until stiff.
  2. Continue mixing while adding sugar in a slow stream, then vanilla and a pinch of salt.
  3. For pie or shortcake topping use regular sugar, but for cake topping use powdered sugar.

Perfect whipped cream!!! And, as Liz from Halifax suggested, chilling the beaters and bowl will ensure success. Thanks for posting!!! Alan

I can highly recommend this recipe. It is the only one I have used for years. Sometimes I add less sugar. I always chill the beaters and bowl which seems to ensure success in beating it. Glad you have made this public.
