1 cup of cream; what would you bake?

I've got 1 cup of cream in the fridge, an apartment chilly enough to turn the oven on, and a decently stocked pantry, and no commitments for several hours. I'm craving something baked, and sweet.

What would you make?

    1. A baked custard. And brulee it afterwards!

        Yep, custard is my first choice, too.

      2. Banana & chocolate chip bread pudding. You can substitute half the milk with cream. You can probably leave bananas out if you don't have any.

        Ina Garten's dill scones...

        1. scones, small batch of rice pudding or vanilla whipped cream for chocolate mousse.

          1. Whipping cream? Got fruit or berries? I'd bake some meringues and make mini pavlovas or Eton mess.
