the addition of light corn syrup to the cream helps stabilize it so the whipped cream does not go flat and stays nice and perky for a couple of days.. older cream, (check the date) whips better than fresh and the bowl and the beaters should be well chilled..
- 1 cup very heavy cream
- 1⁄4 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
- 1 pinch salt
- in a mixer bowl, combine all the ingredients and whip until the cream is stiff and well defined peaks form.
- don't walk away and leave the mixer on -- though -- the mixture can turn into butter in a matter of seconds.
This is wonderful and so simple. I will never buy pre-made whipped topping again. This flavor of this is similar to certain filled sponge cakes that we all love.
Good whipped cream, but I'm not sure the corn syrup did it's job. It seemed it may have settled at the bottom of the bowl and not been fully incorporated in the cream. I use the whisk attachment on my KitchenAid mixer to whip cream, and it whips it very quickly. I think I may try it again adding the corn syrup while the mixer is running. Thanks for posting the recipe!
I omitted the corn syrup and it was still wonderful. It kept on the counter just fine for an hour after making it. This was so good.
