  1. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.

Good recipe. Chill mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 10 minutes before preparing. Also,can experiment with different extracts to get just the right flavor to go with that perfect recipe (rum extract,almond,banana,coconut,maple,coffee)~tried them all :)

the ratio is good, with the exception of sugar, I found that it was not as sweet as I like it

Excellent! I was out of powdered sugar, so used regular sugar instead and it still came out great! Thanks :)

So simple and easy to make. Be sure to use a metal bowl. I usually place mine (with the wisk) in the freezer for five or ten minutes before making the cream. Delicious! You'll never buy ready made again!

There's nothing like homemade whipped cream! I doubled the amount of confectioners' sugar, but other than that it's a classic recipe that's perfect with pound cake and strawberries (or anything else you can think of). Definitely make sure your bowl and beater are well chilled and you'll get perfect results every time. You'll never go back to store bought again......

I made this recipe to put over fresh strawberries. Since a couple of the reviewers said the whipped cream was not sweet enough, I doubled the powdered sugar to 2 tablespoons. It was delicious! I will definitely use this as my whipped cream recipe.

This was perfect!It was also very easy.I used an electric hand mixer(low setting) and it took a few minutes to get to the soft peaks stage.I had to add a 1/2 a tbls more confectioners sugar than the recipe called for because it was not sweet enough.I served it with strawberries.I will surely make this again!!!

Perfectly good whipped cream. An easy way to get your whipped cream to stay fluffy is to bloom 1 tsp of unflavoured gelatin in 1tbsp of water. Then just add that to your whipped cream when you add the sugar. It will stay nice and fluffy for days! No more making whipped cream at the last possible second.
