heavy whipping cream (3/4 C)
powdered sugar (2 tablespoons, more or less to taste)
one glass jar (preferably with handle)
an electric hand blender with whisk attachment*
*This CAN be done by hand if you don't have an electric hand blender. You will need two people - one to hold the jar and the other to whip the cream. To whip the cream by hand use a regular whisk and twirl between your hands as though you were trying to light a fire. Done this way it takes approximately 5-8 minutes of consistent whipping to thicken the cream.
Step 1: Chill Cream.
Pour approximately 3/4 of the heavy whipping cream into the mug. Feel free to let this sit for a few minutes to let the cream chill.
Step 2: Whip Cream.
Continue until the cream starts to thicken, approximately 90 seconds.
The first photo demonstrates how thin the cream is prior to any whipping. The second photo is after 90 seconds of whipping.
Step 3: Add Powdered Sugar.
Continue whipping. About 30-45 seconds more.
After adding the sugar, your whipped cream will thicken quickly. Stop when the cream stays in the whisk when it is lifted from the jar.
