I really have 2 separaten questions here. First, does anyone else find that they often cannot detect vanilla extract in cake/cookie batters, amongst other things. I use good vanilla, neilsen massey extract, but sometimes wonder whether going with the more expensive stuff is a waste in these uses.
Second, cinnamon. I find that ground cinnamons can have different flavors? The one I recently purchased almost had a clove-like note. I was not a fan. Anyone else agree? Any go-to brands for cinnamon?
