Elderflower cream is made with sweet elderflower cordial. The cream is a lovely light cream to use on British summer puddings.

Use the cream in place of whipped cream on an Eton Mess recipe. In a trifle, try it with soft summer fruits or on a Pavlova. All are simply delicious.


  • 400 milliliters heavy cream (or double cream)
  • 50 grams icing sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons Elderflower Cordial

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Place the cream and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat to soft peaks using an electric, or hand whisk.

  3. Carefully fold in the elderflower cordial to taste.

  4. Place in a serving dish, cover, and store in the fridge until needed.


  • Use a bowl that is deep enough for the cream to increase in volume. A deep bowl will also keep spatters contained.
