🥘 Ingredients In This Recipe
The printable recipe further down the page has the complete list of ingredients, including quantities and step-by-step instructions.
Cream - use a high-fat cream like heavy whipping cream it whips up better than low fat or half and half cream.
Sugar - we prefer powdered sugar when making whipped because it mixes quickly into the cream.
Cinnamon - you will need finely ground cinnamon powder. If you are using homemade cinnamon powder, grind the cinnamon into a fine powder because if it is not a powder, the cream will have a gritty texture.
Stand mixer or whisk.
🍳 Step By Step Instructions
Step 1 - Place one cup heavy cream, icing sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon powder into a mixing bowl. If you would like the cream more or less sweet, feel free to adjust the amount of sugar.
Step 2 - Use an electric mixer and beat at high speed until the cream reaches the consistency you need soft, medium, or firm peaks - this will depend on what you are making with the cream (see notes below).
Step 3 - Transfer to a sealed container and store in the fridge until ready to use.
✏️ Recipe Notes
To make peaks beat the cream until you see it start to thicken, stop beating, and lift the beaters out of the cream.
Soft peak cream - If a peak forms and flops over immediately, it is a soft peak.
If a recipe calls for a soft peak, you can stop beating, but if it asks for a medium or firm peak, continue to beat the cream for a little longer to get the correct consistency.
Soft peak cream is the best consistency for folding into other mixtures such as blancmange or making fruits in cream.
Medium peak cream- If the peak stands well, but the tip of the peak curls over it is a medium peak.
If you beat medium peak cream a little longer, it will become frim peaks.
Medium peak cream is best for sandwiching cakes together, or for serving with things like our eggless scones.
Firm peak cream - If the peak stands well and does not curl over onto itself, it has become a firm peak, and you should stop beating the cream.
If you continue to beat the cream after the firm peak stage, it will split and won't be nice to use.
💭 Recipe Tips
Adjust the cinnamon
If you want the cream to have more cinnamon flavor (we used half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon in this recipe), you can add more, but be careful not to add too much because too much cinnamon can overpower the cream.
Stabilized cinnamon whipped cream
If you are using whipped cream for piping and would like it to hold its shape for longer, whip in 1 tablespoon of skim milk powder for every cup of cream you use.

Chocolate cinnamon whipped cream - whip in a teaspoon or two of cocoa powder.
Alternative sweetener - instead of icing sugar replace it with brown sugar, maple syrup, or honey, these all go well with cinnamon.
Refrigeration – Store cinnamon whipped cream in an airtight container in the fridge. If stored correctly, it should keep for up to 3 days.
Freezing – Not suitable for freezing.
📝 Frequently Asked Questions
Heavy whipping cream will double in volume, so 1 cup of unwhipped heavy cream whipped to the firm peak stage makes about 2 cups of whipped cream.
Half and half cream has less fat than heavy cream it will whip up somewhat, but it won't be as thick as you can get heavy cream, and it won't hold its shape, so it is not good for piping.
