Oops, did you end up with over-whipped whipped cream? No problem, here’s a solution to over-whipped whipped cream.
You decided to make some fresh whipped cream. Yum! But unfortunately it went from smooth and creamy to broken and grainy in a matter of seconds.
The second you realize you’ve gone too far – STOP! Put down the beater, breathe and relax. All is not lost, there is a way to save over-whipped cream and have it looking smooth and creamy once again.
To rescue over-whipped whipped cream, add a few tablespoons of fresh cream to the grainy whipped cream. Gently beat it into the existing mixture. In fact, to be safe, blend in the added cream by hand using a wire whisk. All it takes is a few turns of the whisk.
This technique will work as long as your over-beaten cream hasn’t started separating and forming small lumps of butter. If your cream has started to separated, then you might as well continue to beat and show off your butter making skills!
