Mock cream makes a good standby for fresh cream. It is made from simple ingredients which are usually to hand, and costs considerably less than double cream. It makes an excellent substitute for double cream when used in mouses and other similar desserts.

Milk - 150 ml
unsalted butter - 100 gms
Powdered gelatin - 1/2 tsp


  • Put the milk in a pan, add the butter in pieces and heat gently until the butter has melted.
  • Remove the milk from the heat, sprinkle over the gelatine and stir well to mix.
  • Leave to cool for one to two minutes, transfer to an electric blender and blend for 2 minutes until creamy.
  • Chill in the refrigerator, then whip as required.
