What's more, you can easily double this recipe if you are cooking for a bigger crowd.

Put the mixing bowl and beaters in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to get them thoroughly chilled before beating the whipped cream. This step will help to mix the cream up quicker and help to make it lighter and airier. 

This recipe is especially good if you can find Grade B or the darkest syrup possible, as it will bring a more intense maple flavor to the whipped cream.


  • 1/2 cup whipping cream, cold

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, preferably dark or Grade B, cold

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Chill the mixing bowl and beaters for best results.

  3. Beat whipped cream until soft peaks form; add maple syrup and beat until firm.


  • A stainless steel mixing bowl works the best for this process.
  • The darker the syrup, the stronger the taste of maple will be.

How to Get Stiff Peaks When Making Whipped Cream

Make sure the mixing bowl, beaters, and whipping cream are cold. This will speed up the process and also help to make the final product light and airy. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed and mix until peaks form. Stiff peaks are when the cream is fluffy, yet stiff, and when you lift the beaters, the cream will have peaks that stand up. The mixture will increase in volume and also thicken.

If the peaks don't stand up but droop, you have achieved soft peaks, and the cream needs to be beaten more.
