When using vanilla in simple dessert recipes you will find more than one choice. Vanilla comes in pure vanilla extract, vanilla beans and vanilla paste. You will also find infused vanilla syrups and vanilla sugar along with other options. Most people rely on vanilla extract for their baking needs mostly because it's an easy ingredient to find and fairly affordable. Vanilla extract is made by macerating the vanilla beans into a mixture of alcohol and water. When purchasing vanilla extract you want to try and avoid imitation varieties as they will have a weaker and sometimes tinny aftertaste. Vanilla beans are an almost waxy dark brown pod that is filled with thousands of little brown flavorful specks. When purchasing you purchase vanilla beans you want to make sure the beans are plump and smooth, and never dry. Vanilla beans should smell highly fragrant and have a slight shine to them. The advantage to using vanilla beans is the way the thousands of little black dots fleck throughout your recipe. For lighter, more fluffy desserts such as white cakes, cupcakes, and muffins using a vanilla bean offers the best flavor as it is so intense and it's nice to see the little black specks in the finished recipe is well worth it. Vanilla paste comes in a small jar and contains the scraped-out vanilla pod, so you also get that super fragrant, sweet, speckled product in a more convenient option.
