Vanilla Sugar with Thermomix: How to Make Flavoured Sugar

Vanilla Sugar with Thermomix: How to Make Flavoured Sugar 

Would you like a totally natural vanilla flavour? Here is the recipe to make vanilla sugar or vanilla flavoured sugar with Thermomix which can be used instead of a vanillin sachet. Incredible, isn't it?

Once again Thermomix allows me to prepare some basic ingredients in a simple and natural way.

The first time I made this recipe, I had just returned from a beautiful trip to Egypt. I had returned with a bag full of vanilla beans. I wondered how I could preserve the freshness of vanilla beans? So I decided to make vanilla sugar!

You can use this vanilla sugar to prepare panna cotta the Wild Berry Cheese Cake or for the Thermomix Custard.


- 3 vanilla bean3
- 600 g caster sugar

Let's cook

Put 3 entire vanilla bean in a glass container without cutting it.

Add 600 g sugar and close the container.

You can fold the bean in half if it is too long for your container.

Let the vanilla with sugar rest for a week.

You should shake the container everyday, so that all the sugar makes contact with the bean.

After a week put the sugar and the vanilla bean into the mixing bowl of your Thermomix. Mix. 15 Sec. Speed 10.

Pour this vanilla sugar into an hermetic container and close it.


I used glass tomato puree bottle to put sugar and vanilla bean.

One tbsp of this vanilla sugar replaces a vanillin sachet.

About preservation, vanilla sugar has the same expiration date as the sugar itself, that means you just need to look at the expiration date of the sugar. Write the sugar expiration date on the vanilla sugar box.
