Vanilla Sugar Seasoning is a staple in our house but it can be kinda expensive which is why I started making it from scratch. This dry seasoning is easy to make, store, and use. Once you start making it you’ll wonder why you ever purchased it pre-made before!
Enhance the vanilla flavor in everything from coffee and tea to cakes and cookies with this flavorful, homemade version of vanilla sugar seasoning. It is a 1:1 mix of white sugar and vanilla beans.
Homemade Vanilla Sugar Seasoning
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 vanilla bean pod
- Using a pairing knife, carefully slice open the vanilla bean pod.
- Scrap all the vanilla bean seeds out.
- Place vanilla bean seeds and sugar in a clean glass jar.
- Screw the lid of the jar on tight and shake to combine.
- Store in a cool, dry place.
- Shake before each use.
Makes a bit over 1 cup.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons to your cup of coffee or tea.
- Use in place of regular sugar in a recipe for extra vanilla flavoring.
Homemade vanilla sugar seasoning can be used instead of regular sugar in your favorite dessert recipes. I love it in my coffee and tea. The kiddos love a bit sprinkled on top of buttered toast or cream cheese topped bagels. There are so many tasty ways to use this seasoning.
By making your own seasoning you can use high quality ingredients while still making a seasoning that cost less than buying pre-made. It also allows you to eliminated any ingredients that you don’t like and gives you total control over the spiciness of the seasoning.
Have a great day!
