Double Cream

This is cream you thicken and enrich yourself, so that it has the body of whipped cream—for spooning over desserts and fruits without drowning them—and the taste of the best European and British creams.


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup mascarpone
  • ¼ cup buttermilk


Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth, and let sit at room temperature for 8 hours. Refrigerate for 24 hours (or up to 3 days) before using.
