Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream

Servings: 3 ½ cups (875 ml)

Whipped cream can over-whip very quickly. Once it starts getting thick, check it often by lifting the head of the mixer and looking for medium peaks.


  • 2 cups (500 ml) heavy cream
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons (45 to 60 ml) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract


Put heavy cream into the Cuisinart mixing bowl. Attach the chef’s whisk and begin mixing on Speed 1, gradually increasing speed to 12 and mix until thick, 40 seconds. Add the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract, being careful not to over-whip. Stop mixer once medium peaks form, about 1 minute total.
