I have a recipe for a lemon cream filling that calls for 10gm of cream powder, which is a dried cream, apparently. But I have no idea how to get any (except in bulk- ye gods) and can I substitute heavy cream for it? recognizing there will be more liquid and potentially less fat. HELP?!!!
and, as always, thank you.

Gee, I’ve never heard of cream powder.  10gm isn’t very much.  Maybe the recipe is asking for powdered creamer (like coffee creamer).

Virginia, here’s a definition I found online. Hope it helps. I’ve never heard of this product.

DESCRIPTION Milk powders and cream powder are milk products which can be obtained by the partial removal of water from milk or cream. The fat and/or protein content of the milk or cream may have been adjusted, only to complywith the compositional requirements in Section 3 of this Standard, by the addition and/or withdrawal of milk constituents in such a way as not to alter the whey protein to casein ratio of the milk being adjusted.

Composition
Cream powder
Minimum milkfat42% m/m
Maximum water** 5% m/m
Minimum milk protein in milk solids-not-fat** 34% m/m

VIRGINIA:
  Good morning to you. Virginia, let me suggest this to you. Being that your ingredient can be almost anything & that can be a ingredient that is used every day in general dessert baking but is refered under a different name due to a culinary un~educated author who possibly plagerized the recipe & made a simple change to it. I have seen this before many times. I believe member Rozanne may have hit it on the head with possibly a milk powder…but a heavy cream powder????. List the recipe & I believe we can help you. 10, grams is only 1/3rd of an oz.

  Till then Virginia enjoy the rest of the day.

ROZANNE:
  Good afternoon my friend. Here is what I am thinking Rozanne…Can it be possible that that product be one of the wares of Dr.Oekter corp of Canada????? I think that is where I would go first. Tell me what you think my friend.

Enjoy the rest of the day.

Cass, I had never heard of this product before but your suggestion is interesting. I called their Customer Service line today but they close at 12:30pm on Fridays. I’ll check it out this evening when I go to the grocery store and let you know.

Cass I checked all the Dr. Oetker products and they don’t have anything even similar to cream powder. They do however have a product that claims to stabilize whipped cream for hours. I just thought it was interesting. http://www.oetker.ca/en/product/baking-ingredients/pouch/11140

  Good morning. Thank you Rozanne for your efforts. The requester never came back so I assume she just gave up hope.
Have a nice day Rozanne.

It could be Bird’s Custard Powder.  Or basic vanilla pudding mix.  Or if its a professional recipe, it could be referring to powdered pastry cream mix

JEANNE:
  Good morning. That is exactly what I was thinking, It is a powdered mix that isn’t sold here in America. I know in Canada they sell these mixes…some of which I wish I could buy, it makes life much easier in baking.
Enjoy the rest of the day Jeanne.

In some larger grocery stores with an International Foods section, you can find Birds Custard Powder in the British/Irish foods section.  It’s a blue/red/yellow can, about a little taller than an evaporated milk can in terms of size.

Cass, was there anything in particular (product or brand) that you wanted from Canada?

ROZANNE:
Good morning my friend. No Rozanne, I wasn’t looking for anything special in those powdered boxes. I just know that from listening to other members in other baking forums that I was a member of many years ago that they spoke of these items. Here in Las Vegas we do have 1, store that sells many, many foreign country food items. My problem is that I cannot remember that , that store is available to me. I visted once about 5 years ago. I will soon go back & take a another look around.

Thank you for your interest Rozanne & have a nice day.
