Whipped cream aids a lot of recipes whether savoury or sweet! It can also be whipped even further to become butter as well! You can add around 100g of icing sugar to this cream to turn it into frosting as well!
Why not try adding this to some hot chocolate as well? It tastes delicious as a topping!
You can use really any type of double cream- we decided we would use extra thick since it contains more fat which fastens the process. Make sure to stop whipping when it’s whipped enough as it will start to turn to butter!
Either choose to use an electric mixer or a hand mixer. An electric mixer will cut down the time to around a minute or two. Keep whisking the cream until it gets thick and to the consistency of whipped cream but not too thick or it will turn into butter.
This butter recipe was made from extra thick double cream! It’s rather fun (though personally; it’s also tiring to your arm) to make it! This is great if you’ve run out of it and need to make some quickly! Either for a recipe or general cooking needs- as long as you’ve got double cream! You’re ready!
Though during the recipe; if your double cream is all stuck in the whisk- add some milk. It’ll not only move the cream/butter out of the whisk but also add moisture. This moisture helps to get the butter from sticking inside of a whisk. Also, you get more yummy buttermilk!
In these steps in the most simple form; we add the double cream. Whisking it until it’s in a solid form then strain it. Make sure to squeeze the buttermilk out of it then wrap!
If you want you can add salt to the double cream to it then whisk it. You need to add the salt at the double cream stage to help incorporate it.
