If your homemade baked goods don’t seem to stack up to the flavor of professional bakeries, there’s one trick that can fix that. Emulsions! These are water-based, alcohol-free extract alternatives. The flavor you want gets encapsulated in natural stabilizers then suspended in water. The encapsulation enables the flavor to not lose its integrity when exposed to high heat, unlike alcohol.

Heather Smith and Candace Heward share how to use flavor emulsions in place of flavor extracts for delicious baked goods.

How do you use emulsions? If your recipe calls for 1 tsp. extract, use 1 tsp. emulsion. It’s that easy! Here are three of the best emulsions and what you can use them for.

1. Butter Vanilla
