This Calvados Cream Recipe, from the talented Delicious team, is so quick and easy to make, and will last in the fridge, if covered, for 4 – 5 days, so you can prepare it early for Christmas, or just whip it up at the last minute. Brilliant with Christmas Pudding, and any Apple desserts.
I have, shall we say, a penchant for Calvados. For special meals, such as Pork dishes, or Apple desserts, a touch of Calvados can really enhance the flavour. Basically a rather special apple brandy, created in Normandy, Calvados is not cheap, so in our house it is for ‘special occasions’ only, Christmas being the best ‘special occasion’ that I’m aware of.
This Calvados Cream recipe is by the Delicious team. It is a boozy cream and perfect to go with Christmas pudding, apple pie or fill a meringue base with it and scatter with Christmas fruits.
- 600ml double cream
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- 4 tbsp Calvados
- Lightly whip the cream and icing sugar until it starts to form soft peaks.
- Add the Calvados and whip until just holding its shape.
- Cover and chill until ready to serve.
- It should last for 4 -5 days in the fridge, if covered.
Hope you enjoy the Calvados Cream recipe – it is so easy and quick to make, and can make your Christmas Day more relaxing by making a day or so ahead. It will enhance the taste of your warm Mince Pies as well as your Christmas Pudding. Keep looking for more of the recipes I find – luckily I’ve just found my ancient old personal Recipe Book with my tried and tested recipes, so I will be writing those up, as well as more recipes to make Christmas Day as relaxing as possible for the cook (or chef).
