Swedish Cream

Course: Desserts


  • 2 1/2 tsp (1 envelope) unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean scraped
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • Lingonberry jam for serving
  • Fresh raspberries for serving


  • Bloom the gelatin in cold milk.
  • In a saucepan, bring the heavy whipping cream, sugar, vanilla seeds and lemon zest to a simmer. Whisk in the bloomed gelatin until smooth. Remove from heat and add the sour cream. 
  • Pour into individual molds and allow to set in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, it may take longer if you’re using bigger molds. 
  • To invert them, dip the base of the molds in hot water to help release it onto a serving plate. Serve with a dollop of lingonberry jam and fresh raspberries.
