Vanilla Sugar is an extremely useful store cupboard item - it not only makes use of other wise unusable part of the vanilla pod but also provides sweetness and flavour for baking and making sweets.


  • 2 cups (1lb) caster/superfine sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 airtight container
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Break the vanilla pod into several pieces.
  2. Put the superfine sugar into the container.
  3. Place the pieces in the container with the sugar.
  4. Secure lid.
  5. Leave to infuse for a few days or until you are happy with the flavour.
  6. Use in recipes such as custard.

Where I live in South East Asia, I cannot find whole vanilla beans. Is there a recipe for vanilla sugar using vanilla extract. Thanks, Ingrid
