Va-Va-Vanilla Sugar and Vanilla Coffee

With vanilla, more is always better in my books.  Use these recipes to add vanilla to every part of your day, especially the days that just suck.  I’m 99% sure that vanilla fixes everything.  I’m 1% sure that that’s how many times you’ll regret making them.

Homemade Vanilla Sugar and Vanilla Coffee

Vanilla Sugar from Cooking with Jax

  • 1/2 cup of sugar (cane or plain white sugar is best)
  • 2 vanilla beans
  1. Slice open the vanilla beans and scrape the beans from the pod using the side of your spoon.
  2. Stir the wee beans into the sugar, and pop the pod into a 350ml bottle of vodka or bourbon for some stellar homemade vanilla
  3. Store and use whenever you need a bit more vanilla!
Vanilla Coffee
  • 100 grams of whole bean coffee, ground
  • 3-5 vanilla bean pods
  1. Slice open the vanilla beans and scrape the beans from the pod using the side of your spoon.
  2. Mix the beans into the coffee and pop the pod in the coffee for good measure.
  3. Let it sit overnight for maximum flavour extraction.
  4. Use as usual!
