Hey everyone, I’m back!!! Well for this Sunday anyway. What a crazed summer it has been!! So much fun with visitors but also stressful with selling out home and finding a new one!! Waiting on an offer getting accepted as I type.
I had to find time to join into this one as I had suggested this theme to Isabel after we did Movie Inspired #SundaySupper. I would have loved to have hosted this one but I just don’t have the time right now. I didn’t have a song in mind at that time so I had to put my thinking cap on. I went way back to my childhood. I loooooved this album and made my dad play it for me all the time. Whipped Cream and Other Delights by Herb Albert and The Tijuana Brass. I was also fascinated by the cover. How pretty the girl on the cover was and how could she be just wearing whipped cream??
This was a huge album for it’s time and was Herb Albert’s most famous. The actual song called Whipped Cream is the theme song for The Dating Game. I am sure you all remember that!! Well if you are my age anyway.
Okay so I had picked out the album/song, now what??? I streamed through ideas and recipes in my head using whipped cream and I couldn’t settle on one that I liked. I wanted something new!! Then I decided just to stick with the whipped cream and came up with this idea.
Wow, what a great idea and so adaptable for any dessert. The combinations are literally endless. I decided to do an Oreo one, a honey one (ode to A Taste of Honey, the first song off the album), maple syrup and coconut to start with.
These can be used in so many desserts, puddings, cakes, with fresh berries, on pancakes, waffles, the list can go on and on!! Whip your cream in a standup mixer with the bowl and whisk ice cold from the freezer. Add in icing sugar to taste, don’t make it too sweet.
Here are the few ideas that I came up with:
1. Whipped Cream and crushed Oreos. Imagine that between layers of chocolate cake!
2. Whipped Cream with flavored honey, I used a blackberry honey, the list there goes on and on!! That would be amazing over fresh blackberries!!
3. Whipped Cream with maple syrup, use the good stuff and this would be awesome over pancakes or waffles!!
4. Whipped Cream with coconut, add in a few drops to taste of coconut extract and then shredded coconut. You could iced an angel food cake with this, yummy!!
5. Whipped Cream with candy canes, crush them in a Ziploc bags and then add them to the whipped cream. This would make a great sandwich cookie at Christmas.
6. Whipped Cream with a seedless jam, fold in your favorite jam flavor and serve over fruit. Drooling!!
7. Whipped Cream with Nutella, warm your cream over medium heat to just a boil, remove from heat and whisk in nutella. Use the portions of 2 cups whipped cream to 1 cup Nutella. Let cool in the refrigerator and then whip.
8. Whipped Cream and liqueurs, the list is endless here too. Think of Grand Marnier, Amaretto, Frangelico, Bailey’s, even a nice dark rum! These would be great with cupcakes, pies, cakes and puddings. YUM!!
9. Whipped Cream and spices, think warm, delightful spices and blends with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc. On coffees in the fall for a specialty beverage!! With your favorite liqueur again of course!!
10. Whipped Cream and Nuts, think sliced almonds with almond extract and creating mini trifles with berries, cake and the whipped cream!!
As you can see I could go on and on here but this gives you countless ideas already.
Pull that old album out and give it a spin!! Get your 60’s groove on!! And enjoy some whipped cream again!!
