Vanilla bean paste recipes
To Die for Banana Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting (don't listen to this recipe for the frosting, it was way too sweet with all the confectioners sugar and was difficult to work with; recommend finding a good cream cheese frosting recipe, add in the vanilla bean paste and enjoy - it would be much better)
Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting. Yummy and moist, great for layer cakes too! Choco Cake Recipe 2 cups all-purpose flour, bleached 2 cups sugar 3/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Hershey's) 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt Sift the dry ingredients together. 1 cup milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 large eggs 1 tsp vanilla bean paste Add to the dry ingredients, mix until just blended. Add 1 cup hot coffee (I use Cafe du Monde, any will work though, even decaf), but careful, it can splatter! Mix until blended. Pour into desired floured pans for cake or cupcakes, bake at 350 degrees until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Recipe for frosting is in another pin!
