Salted Honey Whipped Cream Main

Salted Honey Whipped Cream

Take your whipped cream experience to the next level with this recipe that infuses honey and salt into this classic topping. Great on waffles, pancakes, or your boo.

Ingredients

1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons honey
Pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

A pro tip on making whipped cream, put the bowl and beaters in the fridge for an hour before making it. It’s the fat in whipping cream that traps the air bubbles that make it light and fluffy. If it’s too warm, the fat melts and the air escapes.

Add the whipping cream to the chilled bowl and beat on low with a hand mixer. Increase the speed to medium as the cream begins to fluff up.

When the cream has some body to it but is still a sludge, add in the salt, vanilla extract, and honey. Continue whipping on medium to medium-high.

Beat until medium peaks form. A medium peak will appear perky and then soften a bit.

Whipped cream will last a few days in the fridge, in an airtight container, so you can make this ahead of time.

As always, I recommend using pure vanilla extract. Stored in a cool dark place, it will last indefinitely, compared to the imitation stuff. Same for real honey, even if it crystallizes, it isn’t spoiled by any means.

Buttered Bourbon Maple Syrup Video

Buttered Bourbon Maple Syrup

Take your pancakes, waffles, or anything else to the next level with this delicious syrup recipe featuring maple and bourbon. Brunch and breakfast will never be the same!

Ingredients

1 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons bourbon
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter

Directions

Add the maple syrup to a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Bring it to a simmer. Be careful. If you don’t keep an eye on it, it can boil over.

Add in the bourbon, vanilla extract, and butter. Return to a simmer and cook for 1 minute.

You can make this ahead of time too. A layer of butter will form on the top when cooled but easily mix in when warmed back up.

Once opened, maple syrup will last about a year in the fridge. So lots of reasons to make these waffles! Butter lasts about 4 months in the fridge but up to a year when frozen.

You can veganize this by excluding the butter. I have not tested it with vegan butter.
