🥘 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 and is ideal for piping.
Sugar - we prefer powdered sugar when making whipped because it mixes quickly into the cream.
Instant coffee - you can use granules or powder - these dissolve into the cream without making it watery like chilled coffee.
Espresso powder is good to use because of its intense flavor, but there is no need to go and buy it if you already have another type of instant coffee.
Stand mixer, electric hand mixer, or whisk.
🍳 Step By Step Instructions
Step 1 - Place one cup of cold heavy cream, sugar, and coffee granules into a mixing bowl. If you would like the cream more or less sweet, feel free to adjust the amount of maple syrup.
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 Tips
Stabilized coffee whipped cream
If you are going to pipe coffee whipped cream and want it to hold its shape for longer, whip in 1 tablespoon of skim milk powder for every cup of cream you use.
Chill the bowl and beater
The cream will always whip up better when chilled, so if you are whipping cream on a hot day, place the bowl and beaters in the fridge (or freezer if you have room) for 30 minutes before using.
Having the bowl and beaters well chilled before use will help to keep the cream nice and cold as you whip it up.
What Is The Difference Between Soft And Stiff Peaks?
The term "soft peak cream" and "stiff peak cream" refer to the consistency of whipped cream.
Whipped cream is made by beating heavy cream with a whisk or an electric mixer until it becomes thick and forms peaks.
The peaks of the whipped cream will either be soft, medium, or stiff, depending on how long it is whipped.
If the peak is soft and droops over when the beaters are lifted, it is a soft peak.
Soft peaks are formed when the cream has been beaten until it is just starting to hold its shape.
Soft peak cream is used in recipes where the whipped cream will be used as a topping or garnish, like on top of a pie or a cake, or for folding into other mixtures like blancmange or fruits in cream.
Medium peak cream forms when the cream has been beaten until it is somewhere in between a soft peak and a stiff peak.
The peaks of the cream will hold their shape, but they will not be as stiff as stiff peak cream.
Medium peak cream is not used as often as soft peak or stiff peak cream, but it can be used in recipes where you want a little more structure from the whipped cream than soft peak cream provides, but not as much as stiff peak cream.
For example, you could use a medium peak cream as a filling for a cream puff or éclair, or as a topping for a dessert that will be sliced, like a trifle or a tiramisu, or for serving with scones like these eggless scones.
If the peak stands up straight and is stiff, it is a stiff peak.
Stiff peaks are formed when the cream has been beaten until it is very stiff and holds its shape well and does not flop over.
Stiff peak cream is used in recipes where the whipped cream will be used as a structural element, like in whipped cream frosting cakes for decorative piping on cakes and cupcakes or desserts like this dulce de leche mousse.

No, do not use cold brewed coffee or coffee grounds to flavor whipping cream.
