This One's for Trudy

My friend Trudy does not eat sweets, more power to her!  She does occasionally have a little maple syrup, so here's a recipe for maple-syrup sweetened whipped cream.

1 cup real whipping cream
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp rum flavoring, or 1 tsp. cinnamon.

Whip together until it holds stiff peaks.

Don't hate me, Trudy.  It is only for a special occasion!  There's so much fat in whipped cream. 

Incidentally, if you are not used to sweets, the cream is almost sweet enough by itself, so you could cut down the syrup or even leave it out.

This is one treat I can't eat right now; sorry, family, probably no strawberry waffles for Christmas this year.  I don't think whipped tofu would quite do it.  mmm...maybe I'll make GF waffles for me!

  1. Thanks Lynn!! I don't know why I've never thought to try pure maple syrup for whipping cream. Maybe for Christmas dinner I will make a fruit gelatin (using fruit, fruit juice, and unflavored gelatin) and serve it with whip cream made with pure maple syrup. I haven't made fruit gelatin in several years, so that might be a nice treat for the family.

    You are right... the cream itself is usually sweet enough for me, as is. One time I tried making whipped cream without any sugar but it was actually not as sweet as straight cream! Weird.
