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.
Adding Chocolate liqueur or some Kahlua does pretty well too :)
I love the art of doing stuff! 5
I need this in some sort of recipe card so I can print and remember to do it!
I have a cream whipper and have been using pure maple syrup as sweetener for years. We all love it but my grandchildren especially love lying on the floor and having me squirt whipped cream into their mouths. Sometimes they are barely in the door asking if I have whipped cream.
Soooooo, 35% Whipping Cream - not Heavy Cream(which has 3% more fat) ? Hmmph! Mr. Kitchenaid and I will be whisking up a batch of this stuff, using Heavy Cream and Real Maple Syrup that's produced right here in Iowa, on the Thanksgiving Day Pumpkin Pie I make for myself. No, not a "pumpkin pie" made with canned pureed squash, a Pumpkin Pie, made with a pureed Pie Pumpkin roasted for the purpose.
Let me know if you have questions about pumpkin Pie filling, Iowa Maple Syrup, or even if you're wondering what Thanksgiving Day is (eh). Or better yet, just come and see for yourself. ;-)
I agree, the pumpkin must come from a pie pumpkin, never a can. It's the difference between play dough and mousse.
Maple whipped cream is now a major food group on my own personal list!!
Did you know you can buy high quality 100% Canadian maple syrup in cans? Honest , I'm not blaspheming... Just save a couple of your fancy syrup bottles and transfer the liquid gold into them. Why? Because it's about 30% cheaper. And it is the real thing from Quebec, ma cher.
And if you like "cream soda", just flavor your bubbly water with M syrup.
Oooh, that idea for "cream soda" sounds good!
Bet it'd be good with pumpkin spice in it too... ;)
Yassssss! ~ karen
I fully intend to make this recipe... And the idea of the Maple Cream as well... But I have to tell you that it will NOT be on pumpkin pie for myself, only for my grown kids. I HATE sweet pumpkin. I love it only with butter, salt, and a fork (or savory bread). I will however, throw a ton of it on my pecan pie! Thank you so much for the recipe!!!❤️
I admit it! After I put a ton on my homemade oat waffles and go to put it in the refrigerator, I drink some just to keep the taste on my tongue of course. Love this idea!!
Java Moose in Grand Marais, MN started me on this kick and I love em for it! Instead of sugar or any of those pretend sweeteners, use Maple Syrup in your Latte. Unfortunately most coffee shops not in Grand Marais don't have maple syrup as a flavor shot (they are totally missing out), so I just started doing it at home. Then, sometimes, I top the latte with - maple sweetened whipped cream! It's my Saturday morning treat through fall AND winter.
I desperately want a maple flavoured latte now! ~ karen
I hand whipped some whipping cream and added maple syrup as directed and it pleased everyone who enjoys pumpkin pie. It even tempted a non-pumpkin pie eater to try it again.
Thanks for the idea, Karen!
