This was my first time making whipped cream. I think I did pretty well; I should have followed a couple of tips I’ve seen since. Having a chilled bowl is a great idea; especially if humid and watch it closely especially the last few seconds. I think I over beat mine just a smidge but it was very delicious none-the-less. I liked the touch the lemon zest added; thinking of adding a squeeze of lemon juice too next time….
Homemade Whipped Cream with a bit of Lemon
- 1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp lemon zest
Whip cream, sugar, and lemon zest over medium high-speed for about 2 – 3 minutes until soft peaks form. Whip another 30 seconds to stiffen up a bit not quite forming stiff peaks but a little beyond soft. Serve right away or refrigerate until ready to use. Delicious with fresh sugared strawberries.
