Devonshire Cream For Fresh Fruit

By : | 0 Comments | On : July 6, 2007 | Category : Appetizers, Uncategorized

With all the fresh fruit we have at our disposal this time of year, I thought you might enjoy a dipping cream to smother those fresh chunks of pineapple, strawberries, or your other favorite fruits you might want to dip.
Today I’m bringing you a recipe for Devonshire Cream. It’s easy to make and holds it shape very well.

Many of the recipes I’ve seen for this are made with cream cheese. You will find this one slightly
different in that it is made with sour cream. Feel free to adjust the sugar to your liking.

Devonshire Cream

Makes about 3 cups

  • 1 pint of whipping cream
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Pour whipping cream into a mixing bowl and mix on high. After about a minute add the vanilla. Then add the granulated sugar, a tablespoon at a time. Next, add the powdered sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Last, add the squeeze of the lemon.

When the whipping cream is light and fluffy and fully whipped, fold in the sour cream. You can serve immediately but I think it’s best chilled.

This is delicious with all fruits but my favorites are strawberries and fresh cut pineapple.
