Creme fraiche is a soured cream having approximately 28% butterfat and with a pH value of about 4.5. A good substitute for 1 cup of creme fraiche is 1 cup of sour cream mixed with whipping cream in equal proportions, or 1 cup whipping cream added 3 tablespoons of buttermilk, covered and let to stand 12 hours.
