Vanilla Sugar

Anyone can make vanilla sugar. It is as easy as 1-2-3. It is lovely to have a jar of vanilla infused sugar handy whenever your heart (and tummy) desires.

Sprinkle it on cereal, add it in your tea or coffee. Especially great when added to cookies, muffins, cupcakes, pancakes and waffles.

My personal fave: rolling sugar cookies in it right before they are pressed down into discs. A wonderful way to add extra flavor.

Now let's get started !

To make your own vanilla sugar
just follow these simple steps:

  • Choose a container that will allow you easy access to the sugar. I purchased my diner-style sugar dispenser from Bulk Barn here in Canada. I know Walmart carries them too.
  • Fill the container nearly to the brim with fine granulated sugar
  • Pour the sugar out and into a clean bowl
  • Take 1-2 vanilla beans ( based on how much you like vanilla because 2 beans means very, very vanilla sugar) and score them down the middle with a paring knife
  • Scrape out the seeds and whisk them into the sugar
  • Cut the bean into 1/4" pieces and add to the sugar giving it a quick stir
  • Pour everything back into the jar and seal tightly
  • Allow to sit for at least a week so the vanilla can fully infuse the sugar
