My friend used to tell stories about a store he worked in where they made their own whipped cream. In one: He turns the mixer on with the cream in it. Walks away to deal with a customer. Comes back... butter.
Did you chill the bowl and beaters first? I have never had mine go to butter but they say it gets a yellow tinge before this happens. I start sprinkling in a little sugar when I see it is starting to thicken.
The whipping cream I have been using here is 35% fat (Canada likes to keep us informed), I don't know if that makes a difference.
Yeppers. Me too. Made me soooo mad! lol The last time though, it came out fine and tasted good. You just have to move the beaters around a lot and lift it up a bit to see if it makes soft peaks. Once that happens, your good to go. lol
Sort of - related. Did you know that you can greatly reduce the amount of sugar in whipped cream by adding a little almond extract? My family never even notices and they all swear that I make the best whipped cream
