Ready In:




  • Chill a medium-sized mixing bowl (metal works best) and mixer beaters in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes before preparing. Make sure to thoroughly chill whipping cream as well.
  • Pour all ingredients into the mixing bowl. (Note: You may choose not to add the nutmeg. I like to use it for a surprising, earthy flavor. I also substitute other spices such as cinnamon or cloves if the mood strikes. You may use your discretion).
  • Beat at low speed at first until mixture begins to bubble and slightly thicken.
  • Then beat at medium-high speed until beaters begin to leave a trail, and stiff peaks form when tested with the back of a spoon (Note: Do not beat too long, or the mixture will become sweetened butter).
  • Top dessert of your choice.
  • Cover and store in refrigerator for 24-48 hours.

  1. Thank you for posting this recipe! I used to always make my own whipped cream, but then out of convenience I started buying the stuff in a can when needed for ice cream etc. Well, I went back to whipping my own cream again and it has never tasted quite right...Surprise I kept forgetting the vanilla. Thanks for cluing me back in! Oh, I added a hint of cinnamon to my whipped cream, because I used it to top WI Cheesehead's Mexican Banana Splits. Made for the Aus/Nz Swap 19


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
