How to prepare a Chantilly cream
Chantilly cream, a big favorite with food lovers, is extremely simple to prepare and will perfectly accompany a number of desserts. The key to success: whipping cream, a very cold bowl and a whisk that have both been chilled in the refrigerator.
The perfect way to flavour Chantilly cream is to use vanilla flavoured sugar. It is a great way to reuse expensive vanilla beans that have been used once already to make custards. Wash and dry overnight then store in a jar of sugar for one week, before grinding to a powder.
- 500 ml whipping cream
- vanilla powder
- 50 g powdered sugar
Please make sure that the whipping cream has at least 35% fat content otherwise it will not whip correctly.
Prepare a large bowl filled with ice. Place the very cold whipping cream and the vanilla powder in a smaller bowl over the ice. Tilt the bowl slightly and whisk the cream to soft peaks.
