Chantilly Mysterious Cream


Chantilly Cream (Chantilly) - This is the usual whipped cream with powdered sugar and vanilla. Often this cream is used as an independent dessert, adding various berries to it.

Chantilly is the base cream in the famous Pavlova dessert. Also, this cream is very good for filling eclairs and profiteroles. Hats for cupcakes, a layer of biscuits, a decoration for hot chocolate and coffee. As you already understood, the use of Chantilly cream is unlimited.

There are a couple of nuances in the preparation of this cream:

  1. Cream should be very cold.
  2. It is better to use powdered sugar. In ice cream, it will dissolve better.

Well, now the very recipe for this simplest cream.

Chantilly Mysterious Cream

  • Cream (1) - 60 g
  • Glucose - 4 g
  • Trimoline - 4 g
  • Milk Chocolate - 100 g
  • Cream - 150 g

Yes, for a long time this cream was just like that for me - many-sided, amazing, mysterious. So try yourself to ask Yandex what Chantilly cream is! Hundreds of pages will be devoted to the preparation of completely different creams, which for some reason are called by one word - "Chantilly." And just whipped cream with powdered sugar, and cream with sour cream, and custard with cream, and even chocolate with ... water - all this is supposedly Chantilly. Sorry for the incredulous "supposedly": despite the fact that the veil of secrecy, thanks to kind people, was opened for me, I'm still a little at a loss. But I know something for sure, and I’ll tell you about it now.

So, traditionally called Chantilly cream the most ordinary whipped cream with icing sugar. Beat them up very cold, it is advisable to cool the dishes and the whisk of the mixer, too, the room should not be too hot. Whip the cream until there are clear marks from the whisk, and the mass itself will remain on the whisk. It is important not to interrupt, otherwise it will turn out oil! This moment needs to be caught, and here only experience will help us. It turns out to be a good, tasty, delicate cream, which has only one drawback: it is not very stable, and the products decorated with it should not be left for a long time at room temperature, and in the refrigerator, after a while, the cream will wither and settle a little, it may even become nostril. This is despite the fact that carrageenan thickener is added to modern whipping cream for whipping. Therefore, the decor of cakes, which will have to move, be displayed or just kept in the refrigerator for a long time, is never made with whipped cream of animal origin. And if you see a cake decorated with a cloud of snow-white cream in the window, you should know that it is vegetable cream. They are quite high quality, hold their shape well, look spectacular, but ... you know.

However, everything is not so simple with this Chantilly. It can be vanilla, lime, berry, chocolate and with a whole lot of flavors! To do this, in the cream, in fact, vanilla seeds, lime juice, berry purees or chocolate are added, but most of it is cream. In proportions, by the way, is the difference between Chantilly and ganache (if we talk about a mixture of cream and chocolate): the cream in Chantilly is much larger. If we use additives, the cream must be kept for several hours (ideally night) in the refrigerator and only then beat. Also, for the best "strength" in the Chantilly, gelatin is sometimes added. Glucose and confectionary sugar trimolin serve the same purpose, thanks to which the cream becomes more stable, does not air out for longer and retains a presentable appearance.

As a useful illustration to my chatter, I will tell and show how to make Chantilly with milk chocolate. A cream of this quantity of products will be enough to decorate 10 small cakes.

Put in a saucepan 60 g of high-fat (from 33%), but not village cream, 4 g of glucose and 4 g of trimoline. However, you can take the village cream, but I have never worked with them and I don’t know how they behave, therefore I can’t be responsible for the result. Mix, set on fire and bring to a boil.

In a glass from a blender we put 100 g of milk chocolate broken into pieces.
