Vanilla Bean Paste

Vanilla Bean Paste

Vanilla Bean Paste is a fast and easy way to add vanilla bean flavor, with the appearance of seeds, to your cooking and baking. Many professional chefs prefer to use vanilla bean paste, since it eliminates the time consuming process of splitting and scraping the seeds from the beans. One teaspoon of paste has the equivalent flavor to a whole vanilla bean.

Our rich, concentrated vanilla bean paste can be used in lieu of pure vanilla extract in puddings, cakes, cookies, ice cream or anywhere the flavor and appearance of vanilla beans is desired.

Using vanilla bean paste is also cost effective. One 4 fluid ounce jar contains approximately 8 tablespoons of paste, which is equivalent to 24 whole vanilla beans at much less cost.

Vanilla Bean Paste contains sugar, water, pure vanilla extract, natural flavor, vanilla bean seeds, gum tragacanth (a natural thickener). Since we use a three fold pure vanilla extract in our paste, it is stronger and has a richer flavor than other vanilla bean pastes on the market. It is also gluten-free. Try our paste just once and you will never purchase any other brand.

Pudding, Bread & Butter

Recipe submitted by Steve Rowlands - website developer, friend and great cook.


  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup Amaretto liqueur
  • 12 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 11/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 9 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp. Silver Cloud Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar, to dust top of pudding
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
  • 2 tbsp. powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut four slices of bread into 1/2-inch dice, and spread the diced bread on the bottom of a casserole dish. Sprinkle the raisins on top of the bread cubes and pour any remaining liquid over the bread.

Whisk the yolks, vanilla paste and sugar in a large bowl until combined. Bring the milk and cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan over high heat and pour the hot mix onto the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Pour this warm egg mixture over the bread, making sure all of the bread is coated, and set aside the coated bread for 20 minutes to allow the egg mixture to soak into the bread.

Remove the dish from the oven and roasting tray, and sprinkle with the extra sugar. Broil or use a crème brule torch to caramelize the sugar. Sprinkle with the toasted sliced almonds and dust with powdered sugar.

Serves: Serves 6 to 8

Cheesecake, Virgin Strawberry Margarita

Silver Cloud Baking Contest, 1st. Prize - Jay Lampart

This recipe looks is simple and fun to make. Agave nectar is available in health food stores and large supermarkets. If you dont have Vanilla Bean Paste can substitute 1/2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract.


    For Crust:

  • 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 10 Tbsp. butter (5 oz. by weight)
  • For Cake:

  • 4 ea. 8 oz. package cream cheese ( 2 lbs. )
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 4 tsp. corn starch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lime (only the zest)
  • 1 tsp. Strawberry, Natural Flavor Blend
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1/2 cup raspberry preserves or jam


1. For the crust - melt butter and mix with dry ingredients. Mixture should clump when squuezed, but crumble nicely into chunks when broken apart, like semi-wet sand.

2. Line the bottom of a spring-form pan (see sizes and yields below) with parchment paper. The best way to accomplish this is to trace around the pan with a pan with a pencil and cut along the inside line. Tip - spring form pans have a tendency to leak. I recommend wraping the bottom and sides with heavy duty aluminum foil using one solid piece to prevent water from getting into the pan while baking. Place the prepared spring-form pan on a sheet pan that is at least 1" deep.

3. Grease the pan with butter shorteneing or spray. Gently press the grahan cracker mixture evenly into bottom of pan, compacting it as much as possible. be sure to cover entire bottom of pan, Bake at 350 F. in a still oven for 6 - 8 minutes or until crust is set up nicely.

4. While crust is cooling, prepare cake batter. In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle beat the softened cream cheese with the lime zest on medium speed until smooth and well aerated. Be sure to occaisionally scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula to ensure it is uniform.

5. Add the agave nectar and continue to mix on medium speed. Once incorporated, add the sour cream. Continue mixing then stop machine and scrape down the bowl. Once incorporated, add the corn starch. Mix in slowly so it doesn't spill everywhere. Add the vanilla, the Strawberry, Natural Flavor Blend and the eggs. Once the eggs are incorporated, cease mixing and pour the batter in the spring-form pan ontop of the crust.

6. In a small bowl, whisk the rapsberry preserves until smooth. Pour into cake in a thin line form the center out, spinning the cake to form a pinwheel design(not necessary, but makes for a pretty presentation). Any other pattern or design will do, as long as there is batter and preserves showing on the surface of the cake. For the pinwheel: using the tip of a knife, make small swirling motions around the surface of the cake to create a "tye dye" look with the preserves.

7. Place the cake in a 350 F. oven and pour some hot water into the sheet pan holding the cake pan. This will keep the cake from cracking pre-maturely and will ensure uniform cooking. Cake will take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to cook and will rise like a soufle and is done when a thermometer inserted 1" from the center of cake registers 165 F. or cake doesn't jiggle when jostled. Remove cake from water bath and allow to cool for several hours (or overnight in refrigerator). Warm sides of pan before unlocking form. Optonal - coat the sides of the cake with crushed pretzels. Serve with fresh strawberries and mint. For added tartness squeeze a little fresh lime juice on cake.

Serves: 12
