Vanilla extract is a solution containing the flavor compound vanillin.  Pure vanilla extract is made by macerating/percolating vanilla beans in a solution of ethyl alcohol and water. 

Vanilla extract is the most common form of vanilla used today. Natural vanilla flavoring is derived from real vanilla beans with little to no alcohol.

The maximum amount that is usually found is only 2%-3%. Imitation vanilla extract is usually made by soaking alcohol into wood, which contains vanillin. Vanillin is chemically treated to mimic the taste of vanilla.

Cheddar and Hot Chili Sauce Swirl Bread

Photo of Cheddar and Hot Chili Sauce Swirl Bread

Definitely well worth the effort. The bread was absolutely divine. The Frank's red hot sauce and old sharp cheddar cheese gave the bread some nice and delicious swirls, the bread was so cheesy, slightly hot and packed with flavor. We used 2 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup white flour, and the bread turned out beautifully fluffy and puffy. I was trying to roll the bread tightly, but seemed not tight enough, so still could see the gaps between the layers. But the flavor was just spot on. Give it a shot, you will love it.
