Recipe | Vanilla-infused Sugar

One of my favorite details of our wedding was our homemade vanilla-infused sugar favors. It was easy and not too time-consuming compared to over favor options. And it was clear that it was a winner for our guests – we received so much positive feedback and many were left wanting more.

So two years later, I’ve decided to recreated it. It only took a short time and gets better in storage (the flavors really melt together). My favorite use for this sugar is a tiny bit added to my morning coffee. But really, there are so many possibilities – crumbled cake topper, hot chocolate, or anything that you may use sugar for!

See the recipe below.

Vanilla-Infused Sugar
Makes 4 cups


4 Cups Sugar
5 Whole Madagascar Vanilla Beans


  1. Slice your vanilla beans down the middle and scrape out the inside. Be sure to not waste any vanilla paste.
  2. Combine your vanilla paste and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Stir until there are no large clumps of vanilla. Sugar should be smooth with specs of vanilla throughout.
  4. Pour into storage canister and add vanilla pod for additional flavor.
