TipsWe can make this recip in small individual molds. (Silicone molds are easier to unmold preparation).
Only use 35% cream. It must be cold before use. The mixing bowl must be cool, clean and dry.
1. Place the sugar in the mixing bowl. Mix 10 sec/speed 10 to refine sugar.
2. Insert the whisk, pour the cream, close the lid, and place the simmering basket on top to avoid splashing.
3. Progressively augment the speed to 4.
The cream will take 40 sec to 1 min to be whipped. The time depends on the following factors: its temperature, brand, expiration date.
When the sound changes and the cream seems to thicken, remove the simmering basket and look through the hole of the mixing bowl. You should see the mixture on the sides of the mixing bowl. This means the shipped cream is ready.
Be careful! When in doubt, it's better to stop the preparation first than to let it mix for too long. If whipped for too long, the preparation turns yellow and transforms into butter!
