    Two ways: you can heat slowly with a lot of stirring or you can heat in a double boiler. The first method gives a slight caramel flavor to the cream. It also helps to start with cream that is at room temp. The greater the temperature difference (called "delta-T") the greater the chance of burning. Keep in mind that scald means to heat to just under boiling... small bubbles come up the sides, but no rolling boil. Take your time to get there and it won't burn

    If you have an espresso machine you can steam scald it. If you don't then you can either put it on the stove in a heavy pot, which as you point out, will burn/stick some on the bottom. Or you can just microwave the cream till it's hot. The flavor is a bit different but at least you wont have the mess (unless you fail to watch it and it boils over in your microwave...then you have a BIG mess)

    If you are talking about the coffee-mate in a tub, I would say no, as it's a powder! Anyhoo, I agree with Kat, you could use milk if you wanted to, just a little less than the recipe calls for. Good luck, it looks yummy! Kirsty.

    I must say I don't know the real answer, but if it was me reading the recipe, I would put it in a preheated pot, you know, to shock the cream. It's not like putting something on the burner and slowly heating it up.
