Chantilly cream is a very simple recipe and is made of fresh vanilla flavored cream with powdered sugar. Different from Italian Chantilly cream, chantilly cream is perfect for dessert topping and it is used to make and decorate sponge cakes, like typical birthday cakes. Also, it can be flavored with chocolate flakes, hazelnuts, citrus fruit or fruit purée.

How to Make Chantilly Cream

Pour liquid cream into a container. Incise the vanilla bean with a pointed knife, cutting it over the length 1. Scrape the inside of the vanilla bean to pick the seeds, and then add them and the bean to the cream 2. Cover with transparent film and put it in the fridge for one night. Take off the bean and filter the cream to remove the vanilla seeds. Whip the cream with a whisk and add the powdered sugar 3.

Add the sugar little by little, while continuing to whip the cream 4 that will have to be quite compact 5. Store the Chantilly cream 6 in the refrigerator.


To halve the time, you can use vanilla powder instead of the vanilla bean.

If you have to fill a cake with Chantilly cream, put it in the fridge at least two hours before serving it.

To prevent the cream from melting, utilize the cold cream from refrigerator and a cool container.
