Salted Caramel Whipped Cream

default recipe image

This recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart and is bit more complex than most whip cream recipes.   Serve with a caramel cake or dress up a simple angel food cake.

  • PrepN/A |
  • TotalN/A |
  • Serves1 1/2 cups


    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoons water


Fill a medium bowl with ice and add water to fill, set aside.

Prepare Caramel 
Cook the sugar, water, and salt in saucepan over medium heat, stirring once, until sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, without stirring, until sugar turns golden amber. Do not overcook and do not leave the stove while you are preparing caramel as it can ignite quickly.

Remove caramel from the heat and slowly pour cream down sides of pan in a slow, steady stream (it will spatter). Return pan to medium heat, and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.

Chill The Caramel
Pour the caramel cream into a mixing bowl and place in the bowl of ice. Chill the cream until it is very cold, at least 30 minutes.  You can store the mixture overnight if you wish.  To use, whip the cream in a deep, chilled bowl  until soft peaks form. Use immediately.

Additional Notes

A pinch of coarse salt (Kosher works well)
