A good Chantilly cream recipe is essential to every French kitchen. This rich whipped cream infused with vanilla extract is a classic embellishment to French pastry, génoise cakes (sponge cakes), and tarts.
In essence, all it is a sweetened whipped cream with vanilla added (some recipes use liqueurs in place of vanilla—see the variations below). It's a snap to make if you know how.
- 2 cups heavy cream (30 percent milkfat)
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (high-quality)
Gather the ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together on high speed until soft peaks form.
Use as your recipe directs.
Chill any unused Chantilly cream.
- If you like a flavored whipped cream, now is the time to pull out all those fancy liqueurs you received for Christmas. Some popular ones to combine with whipped cream include amaretto, cassis, brandy, Curacao, Grand Marnier, Irish cream, and rum. Let your creativity be your guide!
- If you're a teetotaler, try one of the many Italian cordial syrups used in coffee drinks. Popular brands include Sonoma, Da Vinci, Torani, Giffard, Stasero, Fontana, and Monin.
- A word of caution: Start slowly, perhaps 1 tablespoon of the flavored supplement of your choice at a time until you've reached the desired flavor.
