A Quick Treat

One thing I really enjoy is store bought angel food cake topped with fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream. I like the flavor of mixed blueberries, raspberries and peaches but any fruit will work. Be creative and use whatever fruit is in season. Making homemade whipped cream is without a doubt worth the effort. I use the following recipe from the Joy of Baking website. Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 tablespoon sugar

In a large mixing bowl place the whipping cream, vanilla extract and sugar and stir to combine. Cover and chill the bowl and beaters in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. When chilled, beat the mixture until stiff peaks form.
