Slightly sweetened whipped cream is a great way to add some extra comfort to your hot cocoa, balance out the sweetness in a rich chocolate cake, or to lighten up some pastry cream for a pie filling (banana cream pie, anyone?).
All you really need to do is add a tablespoon of powdered sugar to a cup of heavy cream. Unlike baking, the proportions are approximate, depending on how sweet you want it. You don’t really need a recipe for this, but I’ll provide one in case you are a rule-follower like me.
