Instant Pot Carmelized Cream

Instant Pot Carmelized Cream

This Instant Pot Carmelized Cream just made browned butter recipes ten times easier to make. Carmelizing cream on the stove top can take hours to get the proper flavor profile as well as color. My Instant Pot has just made stading over the stove to make this golden elixer unnecessary.

Carmelized cream has wonderful caramel and nutty notes that make browned butter pan sauces and desserts sing. Using this carmelized cream in finishing or creating recipes will take them into a new realm of flavor. Adding it to your morning coffee just takes it over the top.

The first batch I made of this Instant Pot Carmelized Cream was quickly transformed into a decadent coffee creamer with the simple addition of 2 teaspoons of Pyure All Purpose Stevia Sweetener and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract while it was still warm. After it cooled in the fridge over night oh my wow was it great.

The second batch I made was a double batch where I sweetened 1 cup and left the other unsweetened to add it to my cream soups and such.

I am envisioning so many recipes using this one simple ingredient. I can see transforming this Stabilized Whipped Cream into a browned butter whipped cream that is suitable for piping and filling snack cakes and more.

  1. This looks yummy! 2 questions: Where DID you get that nifty cover for your bottle? I have several milk bottles I would love to use buy have no covers for them!
    Second, do you think that I could make this in a crock pot?? Maybe use squatty short jars and set them in a couple inches of water, also think I might need to cover the tops of the jars to keep drips off of the cream. My oven doesn’t really go that low reliably. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jackie 🙂 the cover came with my bottle. it is from Anchor Hocking. I’ll see if I can find a link on amazon for lids for the milk bottles.
      I know you can make the cream with the Sues Vide technique, but that is with the water circulating. You may be able to do it in the crock pot in the squaty jars but please make sure you put them on a rack or some foil so they are not directly on the liner (it may cause the jars to crack). If you do do this would you please let me know how it works out for you 🙂
