From the book Patisserie Maison


Probably the quickest, most simple and versatile cream of them all — it is nice and light for filling éclairs, or simply to serve with any tart or ice cream. You can perfume it with a few drops of rosewater or orange water instead of the vanilla extract if you prefer.

Makes about 300g


250ml whipping or double cream
2 tbsp caster sugar
A few drops of vanilla extract or paste


Whisk the ingredients together until thick, but don’t over-whisk, or the cream will turn to butter!
