Maple whipped cream recipe coming at you because not everything has to be pumpkin spice. To whip some up you just need some heavy 35% whipping cream, a bit of maple syrup, a strong arm and a whisk. Or an electric mixer if you're fancy like that. If you're even fancier, command your Martha to do it.
Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Karen. The stupidest person that ever lived. I'm sure this is quite an exciting moment for you if you're meeting a stupid person for the first time.
Here I have whipped you into a frenzy about avoiding pumpkin spice stuff in favour of embracing maple syrup when deep down I know that the real reason for maple whipped cream is for plopping it on top of pumpkin pie. Which is filled with pumpkin spice. I feel like such a fraud.
Lounging on a pillow of maple whipped cream takes the edge off my shame.
If you're having pumpkin pie any time this fall you should, without a doubt, flavour your whipped cream with maple syrup.
The success of this method is entirely dependant on whether you can pry the bottle out of your family members' hands. Several people in my family consider maple syrup to be a beverage.
My own maple syrup, which I make from tapping my own maple tree is secured behind a secret bookcase door that leads to a build-as-you-go stairway that descends into a state of the art, temperature controlled vault that can only be opened by singing any song from The Sound of Music. The bottles of syrup can be found sewn into the hem of the basement black out curtains.
I'm sure you have a similar setup.
Once you have your maple syrup secured, just continue on as you normally would to make whipped cream.
How to Make Maple Whipped Cream
- Get your mixer (either a KitchenAid or hand mixer) ready.
- Add in 1 cup of 35% whipping cream.
- Mix on high speed until the cream starts to thicken.
- Add in 2 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup.
As it happens, I make my own maple syrup. All you need is access to one large maple tree and you can make your own too. I know. It sounds like crazytalk but all you do is boil down the sap. If you're interested, here's my post on absolutely everything you need to know about making maple syrup at home.
- Continue mixing on high until soft peaks form.
Now all you have to do is plop it on a piece of warm pumpkin pie and watch their eyes light up.
Or ... if your family is anything like mine ... forego the pain of making a pumpkin pie and just shove a cup of whipped cream at 'em. These people drink maple syrup out of the bottle ... let's face it, this is a step up for those animals.
Now I need you to calm down a moment because if you like the idea of maple whipped cream there will come a day when you'll want to graduate to something more advanced, more delicious, more - mapley.
It's hand stirred maple cream.
You need to really lower that heart rate with some deep breathing before you read about it because by the end of the post your heart will be a flurry of non-stop pounding, like a chihuahua on speed. If you were to start reading the post with an already elevated heart rate your most important aorta would 100% explode out of your eyes. No doubt about it.
Maple cream is like a maple butter that's so smooth and velvety you can barely feel it on your tongue.
You wouldn't even believe the hiding place I have for that stuff in my house (which I can't tell you about for insurance purposes anyway.) All I can tell you it involves a hedgehog and 42 mattress coils.
Maybe I'm not so stupid.
