Homemade Whipped Cream

Homemade Whipped Cream | Recipe from

Making whipped cream at home truly couldn’t be easier. While it is just as easy to pick up a can of aerosol whipped cream or a tub of cool whip, you can really tell the difference with this homemade version.

I know that using a tub of cool whip or a can of Rediwhip is super easy. I’m definitely all for using those products from time to time. I tend to gravitate more towards homemade versions but I’m not ashamed to say that I’m not perfect.

These products are everywhere now so it might not even occur to people that they can make it at home with just two ingredients. Of course, you can add in other things like cinnamon or chocolate.

Let the whipped cream be your canvas…or something like that.

You can use a batch of whipped cream in a variety of ways. I tend to dip fruit in it and use it as a topping on pancakes, French toast, and desserts.

I also use it in a family recipe, for Creamy Chocolate Fondue Dip that calls for cool whip.

Yield: 1 large batch

Well, anyway here is a recipe for Norwegian Bløtkake (in English). The blogger lives in Seattle. Perhaps whipped cream is more common there, where there are more people of Scandinavian heritage?

All families have their own variant of Bløtkake, because as you say, whipped cream can be combined with a large variety of marmelade, fruit, liquor, chocolate, you name it.

I haven't had any issues with the lemon juice curdling the cream but I understand where you are coming from. I know a few others who make it like this. You can leave it out and it would be fine, or add vanilla.

I originally made it with powdered sugar and I recently switched to unrefined granulated sugar so that is what I used here. I didn't notice a difference between the two sugars myself but I'm sure that there is one. Thanks for your comment!

I was like: What? Recipe for home made whipped cream? In Norway "everyone" are making whipped cream from scratch. Boxes with whipped cream exist, but they are only used exeptionally. The national cake in Norway is a multilayered sponge with whipped cream and berries (aka Bløtkake). You can not make that with cream from a Box. Anne S

I wish that was the case here in the US! Whipped cream is most found in a can or a round tub. :(

I've never used lemon.. But cinnamon is always a good additive! I've also used vanilla and almond extract and nutmeg or cocoa powder for the holidays. Homemade whip cream is the only kind we use in our house! It's quick and easy and requires few ingredients.
