Amazing and delicious Biscoff cupcakes with a brown sugar sponge, Biscoff buttercream, Biscoff biscuits and more!


I honestly LOVEEEE Biscoff. My various and endless recipes using it makes that obvious though. More recently my Biscoff blondies, along with my Biscoff rocky road are some of my favourite traybakes… but sometimes cupcakes are just the best you can choose.

Every time I post a Biscoff recipe, they always go down well. I’ve made these into a YouTube video, but they are easy enough to make yourself! These were an insanely good hit with my mum’s work colleagues as they disappeared out of the tin in less than 2 minutes. Apparently I have become an almost celebrity where she works due to her bringing in my baked goods all the time! But anyway…


I have previously put up a recipe for a no-bake Biscoff cheesecake, which went down an absolute hit. Seriously, its so yummy you will love it! However this went on to me wanting a cake version of it, and cupcakes seemed ideal! 

I used a simple cupcake as the base of my cupcakes, but with the twist of using light brown sugar in the cupcakes they have a lovely natural caramel taste to go with the caramelised theme of the Biscoff!

As you will have noticed from various other cupcake recipes on my blog, and even my Biscoff cake/Biscoff drip cake.. I love a brown sugar sponge. I borderline prefer it to a caster sugar sponge, but it definitely depends on flavour. 

Biscoff centre

As an optional extra for these cupcakes, you can use a biscoff centre. You core out some of the cupcake, and add in some Biscoff spread. It adds a lovely melted Biscoff centre and with every bite you get hints of Biscoff – in my opinion there is never too much Biscoff!


I decided to use a basic spread buttercream frosting for these. Unsalted butter (the real kind, not a spread), icing sugar and Biscoff spread. I would advise using the smooth spread if you want to pipe it more easily though! 


Easily drizzle some biscoff spread over the top by melting it briefly in the microwave or in a pan, and add some biscuits on top. The easiest type of sprinkle is some biscuit crumbs, so crush over a couple of biscuits!

Baking cups

I recommend using these cute baking cups for this recipe because they’re useful, and I just obsessed over them. And as usual, I used my 2D closed star piping tip.. because it makes the most beautiful swirl!

If you are a cookie lover, you will love these. If you are a Biscoff lover, you will love these. If you are a cupcake lover, you will love these. I think you get the picture, enjoy!

  • Add in the eggs and flour and beat again until combined!
  • Using an ice-cream scoop (to make it the same amount per cupcake) dollop into the cupcake cases
  • Bake in the oven for 17-20 minutes or until a skewer poked into one of the cakes comes out clean and they are springy to touch – Leave to cool.


  • Beat the butter with an electric mixer for a couple of minutes to loosen it.

    Made these for my mum’s work and she said they went down incredible!
    Amazingly fluffy cake and lovely icing, would definitely make again 🙂

    For icing I doubled recipe but used 500g icing sugar with 315g biscoff instead
    was perfect is anyone is short on icing sugar

  2. Barbara on October 29, 2023 at 8:09 pm

    I have never used Biscoff before but fancy making your cupcakes recipe as your recipes always go down very well with everybody & Biscoff seems to be popular nowadays.
    I am fine with scooping the middle out & putting spread in the hole but don’t want to use buttercream icing as we are not huge fans of lots of buttercream.
    Can I stir Biscoff through whipped double cream & pipe that on top?
    Alternatively should I just pipe cream on top & maybe drizzle with melted Biscoff spread then sprinkle with Biscoff crumbs ?
    Thank you & for your recipes.

    Hello, can you freeze it once finished? (with buttercream)

    Thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 17, 2023 at 2:05 pm

      Yes absolutely you can, for up to 3 months! Hope this helps! x

    Hi jane! Would stork butter be ok to use for the cupcake mixture?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 23, 2023 at 2:15 pm

      Yes this should be fine, though be sure to use real block butter for the buttercream! Hope this helps! x

  5. Natasha on March 16, 2023 at 8:21 pm

    Made these today they turned out lovely. Do we know how long the icing will last?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 17, 2023 at 11:37 am

      Hiya! You can freeze it for up to 2 months or chill it for up to 2 weeks. Just bring it back to room temp and beat it before using! Hope this helps! x

    Super easy to follow recipe with great flavours (I love so many of your other baking recipes too!). I reduced the sugar in both the batter and buttercream so I could place a dollop of biscoff in the middle before piping. Definitely a hit and love the simple light brown sugar base – a definite go to!

    My cupcake tins and ice cream scoop are a bit bigger so I ended up redistributing them to make 11 smaller ones at roughly 50g each. Thanks for sharing another great recipe.

  7. Snezhana on October 4, 2022 at 1:35 am

    About to try this- does the butter need to be softened/at room temp for the both the batter and the frosting?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 6, 2022 at 3:10 pm

      Hiya! Yes, this will be fine! Enjoy! x

  8. JJ on September 27, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Jane, You Have a drizzle on the top, how ? Biscoff spread is usually tough. xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 3, 2022 at 3:05 pm

      Hiya! I just melt it in the microwave. Hope this helps! x

  9. Ruth on September 9, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    The text for these cupcakes talk about the vanilla sponge but there isn’t vanilla in the ingredients, only just noticed as I wait for mine to cool ready to decorate 🙁

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 14, 2022 at 4:10 pm

      Hiya! Unsure where you have seen this – the whole blog post and recipe talks about a brown sugar sponge from what I can read! x

    Just made these Biscof cupcakes for a school bake sale tomorrow. I’m definitely not a baker and questioned if they’d end up in the bin but the recipe was so easy to follow and they are absolutely delicious!!! The biggest challenge now is trying not to eat them all before I have to take them in.

  11. Rachel on April 23, 2022 at 10:32 am

    Hey Jane,
    Just wondering where can you buy biscoff spread?
    I can’t seem to find it in any shop.

    Thanks Rachel

    • Heather Wilkie on May 16, 2022 at 11:05 pm

      I get it in Tesco, Asda or B & M.

    Hi Jane,

    Made these today look amazing, can i just check the size of the cookie/icecream scoop you use i have a 6cm one i think but that was way too big and the link you put up is for 3 so just wanted to check best size to use.


    • Jane's Patisserie on February 3, 2022 at 1:27 pm

      Hiya! I use a 5cm (middle sized) one! Hope this helps! x

    Love these cupcakes and so do my family and neighbours. The only problem I found was the buttercream when I added boiling water to the mixture the consistency went really weird. I added a splash of milk and it looks way better.

    • Gemma Pearse on May 4, 2022 at 11:15 am

      How could i make the biscoff sponge into a traybake pls

  16. Adele Moore on September 22, 2021 at 5:13 pm

    Have used this recipe before and love it but just a quick question, whenever I use brown sugar I find I get little lumps of the sugar still in the mixture at the end of mixing. Any advice on why and how to stop this. I have found it with other recipes too not just yours whenever I used brown sugar, so any tips would be appreciated. Thank you in advance 😊

      Having to play around with the cupcake recipe because my oven seems to need longer but have made these a number of times and they’ve been a hit every time!

  17. Grainne on July 13, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Jane, I love love love your recipes. You are my favourite recipe creator. Quick question regarding the icing.
    There was kind of a separation of oil when I transferred it to the icing bag and it was quite dry I thought when piping it. Do you know why this would be? I would love to get it 100% right as they were DELICIOUS, went down a treat for my friend’s engagement party.

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 14, 2021 at 2:24 pm

      It sounds like it split a bit – you can try adding a little boiling water or whole milk and beat that in to bring it back! x

  18. Natalie on June 15, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Can I freeze these cupcakes? Obviously without the buttercream?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 17, 2021 at 1:46 pm

      Hello, yes you can and yeah without the buttercream x

    Made these 4 times and every time they have sunk? Not sure what the issue is as I make may flavours and they do not sink? Just this recipe sinks, any tips?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 15, 2021 at 9:59 am

      Hiya, it is just a basic cupcake mixture so there isn’t anything in there that will cause them to sink unless they are taken out of the oven too early x

  21. Maartje Moorman on April 22, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    Hi Jane,

    I love your recepies!
    One question; can I add some crushed Biscoff cookies in the cake mix?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 26, 2021 at 1:41 pm

      Hey! Ahh thank you so much, I wouldn’t recommend this as they will just go soft xx

    These turned out fab! Unfortunately I could only get the crunchie biscoff spread, but I just used a large open star nozzle to pipe them instead and there was no issues with bits of biscuits getting stuck etc, so for those who can’t get the smooth spread, you can still make these! Xx

    Hi do you use the whisk attachment on stand mixer or the beater attachment for making the cakes and which one do you use for the butter cream. Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 6, 2021 at 8:30 pm

      I use the beater attachment for both! x

  24. Ambreen on March 13, 2021 at 6:32 am

    Hi jane. I have made these cupcakes the taste and sponge is super soft. I wanted to ask if i could use the cake mixture amounts to make a simple sponge instead of cupcakes?

  26. Yasmin on March 8, 2021 at 5:13 pm

    Hi Jane, I can’t wait to make these!
    I was just wondering if you knew how many eggs to use if I’m using large instead of medium? Xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 8, 2021 at 7:48 pm

      I would use 3 large, but increase the other ingredients to 175g x

  27. Nat on March 1, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    I tried this recipe and added frozen balls of biscoff spread like in your muffin recipe but it didn’t work and sunk to the bottom when baking. Any suggestions?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 1, 2021 at 9:59 pm

      I usually add spread in at the end and core out a cupcake rather than adding so its probably just because the mixtures are completely different!

    • Jess on March 20, 2021 at 9:12 am

      I cut the middle out when baked and cooled and added a teaspoon of biscoff spread and then piped over the top with icing! Yummy gooey surprise inside!

  28. Becki on February 21, 2021 at 4:20 pm

    Hi, everytime I make this buttercream it ends up looking like it has split, or like a cookie dough! It is really heavy even after the boiling water 🙁 where am I going wrong? I followed all the timings exactly- it always looks okay until I added in the biscoff spread?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 25, 2021 at 2:27 pm

      What butter do you use? xx

    • Emma on April 3, 2021 at 7:55 pm

      I have made this twice now and both times the buttercream has come out dark and dough like. You cannot pipe it at all. Please Jane, what are we doing wrong?? All your other recipes turn out perfect but I can’t get this one right!
      Used Anchor unsalted block butter

    • Sue on April 7, 2021 at 4:39 pm

      Mine looked the same but I kept beating for about 5 minutes and it came round!!

  29. Jennifer on February 12, 2021 at 12:57 am

    I’ve made these before Jane and absolutely loved them! Going to make them again but wondered if I could use Light muscovado brown sugar instead of just light brown sugar? Wasn’t sure if there was much of a difference between the two? Thank you 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 12, 2021 at 8:21 am

      Typically muscovado sugar is an unrefined version of soft brown sugar so sometimes can vary in texture or flavour, but otherwise it works!

  30. Aoife Hyland on February 6, 2021 at 9:55 am

    hi jane,
    instead of using brown sugar could I use caster sugar instead ? x

  31. Minal on December 31, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Hi Jane,

    I don’t have medium eggs can I use large? And if so how many?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 31, 2020 at 6:56 pm

      Yes you can use 3 large, just up the sugar/butter/flour to 175g x

  32. alice on November 8, 2020 at 11:45 am

    hi jane! i am making these cakes today and i was wondering if stork is okay to use for buttercream? thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 8, 2020 at 11:46 am

    Amazing cake texture! We halved our icing mix – and used 100g of Tesco Finest Salted Caramel sauce instead of Bischoff for the icing. Really delicious, and works well with the soft brown sugar cakes cake base.

    Awesome recipe. Use all your recipes for any bake I do now. The cupcakes were very nice with the brown sugar. Everyone who had one loved them. One slight disappointment, but not your fault, was that even though they were put in an air tight container the biscuits went soft very quickly. Will be doing the kinder bueno ones this weekend. Thank you.

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 18, 2020 at 8:54 am

      Hey! Yes unfortunately no matter how you store the cupcakes the biscuits will soften – if you don’t like softer biscuits you have to leave them off until serving! x

  40. Erin on August 5, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    I loved these but how many calories is in each one roughly?

  41. Natalie on August 2, 2020 at 7:19 am

    Cant wait to try these! On the link for the scoops you use, which size do you recommend for cupcakes as it’s a pack of three?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 2, 2020 at 11:43 am

      The 5cm (middle) one!! The other sizes are useful for larger or smaller cookies/cupcakes x

  42. Maria on July 29, 2020 at 5:14 pm

    Thank you for the recipe, I really want to make this for a birthday party. The issue is the heat, since we are in summer and in Italy is very hot and humid 34 °C today. I was wondering how do you keep your frosting? And avoid it from melting Should I pipe them and put them in the fridge? Will the butter cream hold at room temperature?
    Thank you very much.

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 29, 2020 at 7:21 pm

      Hey! So that is definitely a bit hot for buttercream! The risk of the fridge for the cupcakes is that the sponges can dry out a bit in the fridge, so that’s up to you. x

    Really sorry but i’m super disappointed with this recipe. Not sure why the recipe says to use boiling water to loosen the icing, it just ended up melting the butter and i was left with a really nasty icing. Where have i gone wrong?

      I use boiling water in every single recipe for smoothing the buttercream, with no issues. What exact butter did you use?

      Amazing recipe tastes so good. I’m not sure if it’s the cases that I’m using but I found i only had enough batter for 9 cupcakes. How much should I upp the mixture quantity to get 12 cupcakes from the mix?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 1, 2020 at 2:41 pm

      It will definitely be the cases being larger – You would need to use 1/4 more mix at least!

  46. Lucy on June 5, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Hi Jane,

    Can I half the recipe if I only want to make 6 cupcakes ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 5, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    Perfect recipe, turned out beautifully and tasted even better. Although I had a lot of buttercream left over. Was also sceptical about having enough mixture as it’s not the typical 250g ratio, perfect amount of mixture.

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 4, 2020 at 11:21 am

      Ahh yay! For 12 cupcakes I only really ever use 150g/175g mixes as it’s based on 3 medium or large eggs! And buttercream is definitely something that some people can have left over, I personally love it too much 😂

    Can you use use regular flour? Or does it have to be self rising for that sponge cake texture?

    • Ambreen on February 7, 2021 at 7:05 am

      Hi jane
      Need some advice please. I want to make blue coloured cupcakes for a baby boy being born. They like biscoff could u add some blue colour gel to the buttercream mixture? Is it okay to do? Would it ruin the buttercream?

      Thank you


    • Jane's Patisserie on February 7, 2021 at 12:26 pm

      That might not work quite perfectly as the base colour is brown rather than white – but if you can counter that then it would be fine if you used a good quality colour!

  54. Shauna on October 1, 2019 at 12:57 pm

    Hi Jane !
    I absolutely love this recipe, I’ve made this about 4 times now and it seems to be everyones favourite ! I baked them yesterday and the biscoff biscuit as the decoration has gone stale. They’re in a airtight container. do I put the biscuits on top on the day people want them or before? I’ve only put on the biscuits when I’ve put on the icing.I’ve only been baking since end of June so I’m not very clued up 😂
    Thank you would appreciate a reply x

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 1, 2019 at 5:44 pm

      As with all biscuits, as soon as you open the packet they will eventually go soft. If you don’t like that, it’s best to leave it till the last minute!

  55. Amanda on September 2, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Hi Jane
    Was thinking of trying this recipe, the only Biscoff
    Spread I could get said crunchy would this be ok?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 2, 2019 at 8:35 pm

      It should be fine, just be careful of the piping bag you use so the crunchy bits don’t get stuck!

  56. Sana on May 28, 2019 at 2:10 pm

  57. ELENA PARDO BARRENO on March 15, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Oh my God! This recipe is amazing. Do you think with this recipe and these quantities of the ingredients are enought to make a drip cake? Or Maybe Should I change proportions?
    I’m Spanish and my English is not very well, I hope you can understand me hehe.
    Anyway, this recipe is wonderfull, I’m going to subscribe to your blog!

    Oh my God! This recipe is amazing. Do you think with this recipe and these quantities of the ingredients are enought to make a drip cake? Or Maybe Should I change proportions?
    I’m Spanish and my English is not very well, I hope you can understand me hehe.
    Anyway, this recipe is wonderfull, I’m going to subscribe to your blog!

    Do you find that the biscuits soften in the buttercream if left for a few hours?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 29, 2019 at 2:41 pm

      Yes they will naturally as they are out of the air tight packaging.

    Hi, I’m going to make a three tier cake and would love to use the icing from this recipe to decorate with. What quantities of the ingredients for the icing would I need to ice, crumb coat and decorate a three tier cake? Xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 21, 2018 at 9:19 am

      Hiya! Do you mean three layer or three tier? My Biscoff Cake recipe on my blog is a three layer cake already, which probably if you use 1.5x that buttercream it’ll work well!

    If I was halving the recipe for a test batch, how many eggs should I use?
    Best Wishes

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 29, 2018 at 9:01 am

      It’s best to do 1/3 or 2/3, but that doesn’t guarantee a good bake. You want to stick with either 50g of ingredients, or 100g and so on, so it works. 1 Medium egg = 50g, so if you do 1 egg, you’d have to do 50g of the flour, butter and sugar, with 1/4tsp of Vanilla. If you do 2 medium eggs, you’d have to do 100g of the flour, butter and sugar, with 1/2tsp of Vanilla. (I know this recipe uses large eggs, but its easier to use medium if you’re doing a smaller amount) x

      Hi! I have some left over buttercream with some vanilla essence in it. Would it be posible to add the biscoff spread to that or do I have to make it again from scratch?

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 1, 2020 at 2:01 pm

      Yes that should be okay if you make sure the older buttercream is light and fluffy before you add the biscoff in!

    Hi can I use dark brown sugar instead of light?

  63. […] Here I am, back finally with another baking post and while having a quiet day in the house i decided to whip up a batch of cupcakes, but not just any cupcakes. Biscoff cupcakes! You know the little biscuits that come in the red packet when you order a coffee? Yep, thats them but cupcake version. I am telling you, you HAVE to try these, they are to die for!!! This time the recipe is not one of my own, its the recipe of the lovely Jane from Jane’s Patisserie . […]

    Dear Jane,
    Hey! I came across your blog and love all the recipes so much! Dang! I wish I could so great as you tbh. Haha. But anyways,
    I have quite a question about the sugar. Would it be bad to use caster sugar instead of brown sugar and icing sugar or is that not a good idea would you reckon?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 29, 2017 at 7:50 pm

      Do you mean use caster sugar for the buttercream? Because you must use icing sugar for that… you can use caster sugar for the sponge, but it just changes the flavour slightly.

    • Ash on July 5, 2020 at 11:53 am

      Hi Jane! Thanks for this recipie and the YouTube video. I’ve just made the cupcakes for my husband’s birthday which is in a couple of days. I want to make the icing and ice them the night before. Do you think the icing will last 2 days if made ahead? Should I keep it in my fridge? Thanks so much!

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 5, 2020 at 3:50 pm

      Hey! The cupcakes easily last 3-4 days, so you can decorate them before easily!

  65. Alice on February 3, 2017 at 4:58 pm

    Hi, did you try cookie spread in the cake batter or would it not work?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 3, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      Personally I don’t think its worth it – the taste disappears quite a lot so I think its a waste!

    […] Jane’s Patisserie’s Biscoff Cookie Butter Cupcakes […]

  67. bunny and mimsey on May 20, 2015 at 3:55 am

    Oh dear Jane! you will kill me with cake! These little cakes with Speculoos buttecream look to die for – but so much butter!!! OMG – works out to over 1oz per cupcake.
    You’re young and skinny so weight is obviously not not an issue, but what about general health? I was taken aback by how much butter is in this recipe, makes them into a very indulgent and very occasional treat for me.
    Sigh. Mimsey

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 20, 2015 at 10:42 am

      the amount of butter is purely that there is a lot of buttercream per cupcake, its easily halved but with these I love a lot of buttercream! 🙂 I don’t eat cake every day so I like to treat myself haha 🙂 x

  68. transatlanticsisterhood on May 20, 2015 at 12:00 am

    I bet these are insanely good! I’ve banned myself from buying biscoff spread though. Last time I had it I kept it on my bedside table, ate it with a spoon and it was gone in a week flat 😉

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 20, 2015 at 10:41 am

      Hahaha I do the same, however it lasts a lot less time than a week! Usually a day? 😛 and thanks!

  69. pamsyarns on May 19, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    Look lovely. Just want to ask – what is biscoff cookie butter? A trade name? Where will I find it?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 9:04 pm

      It’s a name that can be different depending on where on the world you are – in the UK it’s Biscoff Lotus spread that you can get in the supermarkets, but the U.S. It can be Speculoos? I’m not 100% sure but it’s Biscoff in the UK 🙂 and thank you!

    • pamsyarns on May 19, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      Thanks In UK – will look out for it.

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 9:11 pm

      It’ll be by the jams etc 🙂 Google it for an idea of the jar 🙂

    • pamsyarns on May 19, 2015 at 9:23 pm

      Thanks for tip. Have googled! Know what I’m looking for now.

  70. mypinchofyum on May 19, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Omg, I am so much in love with your blog. Just love each and every post of your’s. Your cookie butter cupcakes look spectacular. Cheers.

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 1:15 pm

      Awwh haha that’s made my day! And thank you!!

    • mypinchofyum on May 19, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 1:28 pm

      Sorry about that!! Haha 🙂

  71. Whisked Away on May 19, 2015 at 11:37 am

    Sold! Seriously, how do you make me drool with every single post??

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      Hahaha thank you!! I am sorry to make you drool though, must get messy!

  72. Cassie on May 19, 2015 at 10:36 am

    Yum yum yum… looks super cute too!

  73. Claire Huston on May 19, 2015 at 10:05 am

    I was wondering who gets to eat all these lovely things. I’m sure it boosts your mum’s popularity at work too! 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 19, 2015 at 10:11 am

      Haha it definitely does, they always ask for more cakes!
