A little-known baking ingredient that's gaining popularity is a sweet brown dust called vanilla powder. Vanilla beans are dried, cured and finely ground, creating a light and sweet powder with an intoxicating scent.
Beware of products labeled vanilla powder that actually contain a bit of vanilla flavoring but are packed with fillers. True vanilla powder, like the powder found at vanillamart.com, contains pure vanilla beans and nothing else. Accept no substitutes!
Vanilla powder can be used in a one-for-one substitution in any recipe calling for vanilla extract. It's a great way to remove alcohol content from a recipe. It's also a wonderful way to add a dusting of sweetness to food without adding sugar. Try sprinkling it on fresh fruit or on the popcorn recipe below.
