Did you know our vanilla powder is great under extreme heat in the oven and doesn't bake out!?

Our powder is more potent than extract, which allows it to be added to warm foods without evaporating too!

Awesome, right?

After years of searching and testing for vanilla that didn't bake at high heats or change the taste of drinks, Carol and Todd created the Baking Barn! Their vanilla extract is made from the world's best Madagascar vanilla beans, and amazing, sweet, food-grade glycerin! It takes a full year before each bottle is ready for sale!
