How much is a pinch? An 1/8 tsp., less or more, I am confused. Need answer right away...Becki Cooper, Winston, OR.

I use all vanilla extract when making this. It makes just enough for my husband and I to each enjoy dessert without going overboard with a big cake. Not that we couldn't eat the big cake, but this helps us "be good" without feeling deprived.
