I’m having a little fun in the kitchen today making a Boston Cream Cake for John’s Birthday! Oh how I love baking and cake decorating!! :o Anyway, I wanted to share this quick and easy recipe with you since I was making it for my chocolate ganache. I didn’t have any Heavy Cream on hand and I didn’t want to stop what I was doing to run to the store either. So, I used what I had on hand. This is also an inexpensive alternative because the store bought cream can be quite pricey.
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
(1) Melt the butter
(2) Pour it into the milk, and stir
(3) Use in place of one cup of heavy cream
*****Tip: If you use low-fat/skim milk, whisk in a tablespoon of flour to the mixture to thicken.
Yields: 1 cup (Store any extra in the refrigerator)
Do you prefer to make your own Heavy Cream Substitute?
