  • High fat recipes: Stronger types of vanilla such as vanilla paste help to cut through the fat so you can enjoy the rich flavour and aroma.
  • Low liquid recipes: Paste is a safer option and better suited for low liquid recipes where you don’t want to affect the consistency of your mixture.
  • Chocolate recipes: A dash of vanilla paste gives chocolate a much needed boost and elevates the bitter flavour. However, vanilla extract is ideal for high liquid recipes such as cakes, pancakes, and it is best suited for no-bake treats, simmered sauces, custards and frozen desserts.
