If you like to bake cakes and make desserts, keep a jar of spiced sugar on hand, and your recipe will start way ahead of the average. Use for simple things like making a sugar syrup.


  • 1 kg (2 lb) caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 cinnamon stick


Pour sugar into a large airtight jar. Push both vanilla pod and cinnamon stick down into the sugar and store for 1 month before using.
