What’s wonderful about these vanilla goods is most of them can be substituted for one another.
A substitution guide:
1 Tbsp. vanilla powder = 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract = 1 whole vanilla bean = 1 Tbsp. vanilla bean paste
How you can use them:
- Use a Vanilla Paste to replace honey or syrup in recipes.
- Pure Vanilla Sugar can be substituted for Turbinado sugar or recipes that only call for a few tablespoons of granulated sugar.
- Make your own vanilla yogurt by adding Vanilla Paste or Powder to plain Greek yogurt.
- Fruit salad benefits from a pinch of Vanilla Powder. Pinch of sugar optional.
- Roll cookies or scones in Vanilla Sugar before baking.
- Use Vanilla Sugar for creme brulee.
- Shakes and smoothies are great with Vanilla Paste or Powder.
- Oatmeal is outstanding with a few drops of Vanilla Paste.
- Vanilla ice cream can be seasoned with any of the products.
- Creme brulee, panna cotta, flan and other desserts look (and taste!) best infused with Vanilla Paste or whole vanilla beans.
- French toast is delicious with Vanilla Extract.
- Frostings and glazes are best with Vanilla Paste.
Though you can always search for dessert recipes on the Brava App or Brava itself, here’s a list of recipes that call for vanilla and/or almond extract (or recipes that would benefit from a teaspoon or two).
