Whipped cream is a rich, dependable garnish for your favorite dessert. But once you’ve had it 10 or 20 times, it can become, well, a little uninteresting. Infused whipped cream, however, is not difficult to make, and can enliven even the simplest dessert.
As its name implies, infused cream is nothing more than cream that’s been infused with another flavor, such as tea, brandy, or espresso. Recently, Jehnee Rains, the pastry chef at Bluehour in Portland, Oregon — and a former pastry chef at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California — showed us how to make Hazelnut-Infused Whipped Cream.
