Tutorial: Heavy Cream Substitute

As a person who doesn’t really drink milk or use it for anything other than baking – I rarely have heavy cream or half and half in the house. When I did drink coffee (I’ve been off the stuff for 8 days and counting!) I drank it black and my roommates usually buy flavored creamers (mmmm hazelnut)  for their java – making it inevitable for an extra grocery trip just to buy some cream.

Since I’m kinda lazy and I like to save money, I’ve become particularly fond of substitutes when a recipe calls for the not-so-common ingredient. I introduce to you, a recipe to substitute heavy cream. I hope your ready for this – you may want to take notes…

What you’ll need: 

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter

What to do:

  1. Melt the butter.
  2. Pour melted butter into milk and stir.
  3. Use in place of one cup heavy cream.

See? Now isn’t that a hell of a lot easier and convenient than making an EXTRA grocery trip? Try it out and let me know what you think!

    This is fantastic! I never have heavy cream in the house. I’ve actually avoided making certain recipes because they called for heavy cream. Now I know what to do! Thanks!

    Love this! Will definitely have to try it! We go out and purchase the heavy cream, use half and then wind up waiting for the rest to spoil and tossing it! Such a waste!
