No-Bake Biscoff Cheesecake!

A delicious No-Bake Biscoff Cheesecake, with a Lotus Base, sprinkled with more biscuits and whipped cream and a Biscoff Drizzle.

Okay so I am a little obsessed with Cheesecake as you might have noticed… But theres nothing wrong with that? Right? Anyway… This is utterly delicious and different to my other cheesecakes – the Biscoff Spread creates a delicious spiced cookie flavour compared to the sweetness of the others on my blog.

This cheesecake suits all of the needs of loving Speculoos/Biscoff, No-bake recipes, and Cheesecake in general. Its utterly scrumptious! I always get a little confused as to whether there is any different between Speculoos, Lotus, or Biscoff, but the fact that even my local supermarkets in the UK sell something similar at least makes me very happy.

I always thought that I could only get it from the rare American Candy shop I came across in the UK or when a friend of mine would bring me back some from the US, but now I can get it all the time! You can find the Biscoff Spread in the supermarkets near the nutellas and such!

Honestly though, Biscoff is genuinely one of my favourite things. My Biscoff CakeBiscoff Cookie Butter Cupcakes and Speculoos/Biscoff Cookie Butter Fudge are just some of the other recipes on my blog using it already. Honestly, its a ever so slight addiction. I even saw some articles about Biscoff Spread saying the UK had ‘compared it to crack’ on how good it was when it was introduced a few years ago…

I’ve made No-Churn Crunchy Cookie Butter Ice-cream for a while now as my dad loves the flavour of it, but the idea of making a Cheesecake just HAD to happen. This recipe is so simple to make, and very very similar (if not the basically the same) method as my No-Bake Caramel Rolo Cheesecake.

Simply mix the biscuit and melted butter to make the base, and whip up all of the cheesecake ingredients and spread it over the base – leave to set an HUZZAH! It’s done! And then I obviously decorate it in some form or another, but this is all optional. The only bits that you really do need is the base and filling ingredients!

I’ve updated this recipe quiiiiteeee a few times, but thats just because I have never been a fan of the pictures I have used. Often I will end up remaking something due to the photos and nothing else, but when I originally updated this I did change the recipe ever so slightly. The original ingredients are listed in the notes section of the recipe!

I just utterly adore and LOVE Biscoff, and I know a lot of you guys do as well. It’s sweet and spicy at the same time, which makes it a perfect addition to a Cheesecake. The spread on top gives a nice rich addition, along with the Lotus biscuits on the bottom. If you don’t want it to be quiiiiteee as Biscoff like, then use 300g of Digestives on the bottom with 150g Unsalted Butter.

Enjoyyyy! x

Keyword: Biscoff

Ingredients
Biscuit Base
  • 300 g Lotus/Biscoff Biscuits
  • 125 g Unsalted Butter/Stork (melted)
Cheesecake Filling
  • 500 g Cream Cheese (full fat)
  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 250 g Biscoff Spread (smooth/crunchy)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 300 ml Double Cream
Decorations
  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 125 g Biscoff Spread
  • Biscoff Biscuits
Instructions
  1. Blitz the biscuits for the base in a food processor until they're a fine crumb. Mix with the melted butter and press down firmly into an 8"/20cm Deep Springform Tin.

  2. With an electric mixer (I use my KitchenAid) Mix the cream cheese, vanilla, icing sugar and Biscoff Spread until smooth.

  3. Mix in the double cream and whisk until its thick and holds itself completely! (Don't whip it too fast, slow and steady wins the race).

  4. Spread the mixture evenly over the biscuit base and chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours, but preferably overnight.

  5. Remove from the tin and decorate how you like. I spread the leftover biscoff spread on top.

  6. Then, I whipped together the double cream and icing sugar and piped it on, adding a biscoff biscuit per slice.

Recipe Notes
  • I updated this post in May 2017. The original recipe used:
    • 150g of Digestives
    • 150g of Lotus biscuit
    • 150g Unsalted Butter
    • And 2x280g of the Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • For this recipe you can use either Mascarpone or Philadelphia, both work perfectly. However, either MUST be full fat!
  • I used the Crunchy version of the spread in the cheesecake filmed, and photographed!
  • You might find it easier to melt the spread for 10 seconds before you try and decorate with it!
  • This cheesecake will last for 3 days in the fridge, once set. 
  • If it looks like your cheesecake isn't setting, or its a but sloppy, or you're even not sure.. try it anyway. Try to set the mix anyway! If it still doesn't set, freeze it and have an Ice Cream Cheesecake!

  1. This cheesecake has been a hit with everyone I have made it for.
    It’s so easy to make. I altered the base with biscoff and digestives as I have a pack that need using up, I used more biscoff biscuit so would lose to much of the flavor.
    I have made 3 so far, one was a request for someone’s birthday.
    All have turned out perfectly as well. I used cream cheese from Aldi and lidl they are about 50p a tub.

  2. Hello. I’m from Belgium (the country where ‘Speculoospasta’ was invented) and I have some questions about your recipe. Your video made me drool so hard, that I decided to give it a try and make this cheesecake., but i’m not quite familiar with the ingredient “cream cheese”. Is it more like Philadelphia or more like mascarpone?
    Thanks ahead!

  3. Hi,

    I made this yesterday and it turned out too runny.
    I let it set in the fridge overnight and just stuck it in the freezer.
    I want to eat this baby in about 6 hours. Do you think it will work? When should I take it out of the freezer?
    When should I get it out of the freezer?

      1. I beat it for like 3-4 minutes on low speed…
        It’s not THAT runny, but too runny to cut.
        I’ll keep you posted how it turned out but the batter already tastes REALLY good.

  4. Hi
    I love the look of this recipe and want to give it a go for my boyfriend’s birthday as he loves cheesecake and lotus biscuits. We’ve just booked a holiday in April/May and he’s ‘trying to get in shape’ for it so I wondered if there’s any changes I could make so it’s SLIGHTLY lower in fat? I realise this is still a cheesecake of course!
    Thanks 🙂

    1. Hiya! You can use lower fat ingredients and then use gelatine to set it for example? Like it will be very liquidy, but as long as you use enough gelatine it should be fine. Or you can use lower fat cream cheese, no icing sugar, and set it in a bowl for example so it doesn’t have to hold itself? And lower fat biscuits etc! x

      1. Hi, can we use lower fat cream cheese and instead of double cream the oatly alternative to cream (Oatly Organic Creamy Oat Dairy Free Alternative to Cream) ? How does it work with the gelatine, what do we need to do for it to settle? Thanks 🙂

        1. Hiya! It works on a liquid base so in my Gin & Tonic Cheesecake I used 5 Dr Oetker gelatine leaves to set it, but that still used full fat ingredients. You would have to soak them first and then add them to the cream when hot so it works and then mix together. I can’t guarantee a set though because I’ve never tried it with the Oatly cream, but instructions for quantities should be on the packets x

  5. Hi, I’ve made you’re recipes before and I absolutely love them. I was just wondering if I can freeze the cheesecake as a whole as this would be splendid because I want to make them for Christmas but won’t be able to make withing a three day window of when they’re needed. Thank you for the advice.

      1. Thank you so much for the help. My family love all your recipes that I make and they’re so easy to make and have fantastic results 😀 x

  6. Hi, thank you this recipe looks amazing as do all of your other recipes.. Making this for Chrismas day just wondering how long in advanced could I do it before hand, one or two days will still be ok?

      1. Thank you, so glad I came across your website on pinterest! I shall be trying all your other recipes they look awesome, keep up the great work 🙂 have a lovely Christmas x

  7. Hi, the springform tin I have is 9.5″, do you have any idea how much to adjust the ingredient quantities by to suit the bigger tin?

  8. Thank you, amazing!!’ My daughter requested this as her birthday cake for her birthday yesterday and wow it was delicious, defiantly as good, if not better, than the English cheesecake co biscoff cheesecake. (I did whip the double cream separately then just folded it into the biscoff/icing sugar and it thickened immediately)
    Off to search for your other recipes now

  9. I made this at the weekend to take round to friends it was delicious and such a nice change from usual cheesecake recipes. No problem with the setting it set perfectly, will be making again.

  10. This cheesecake is amazing, I found this recipe on Pinterest and I just had to come and say that this recipe is so good looking 🙂 Thank you for sharing this delight with us.

  11. Hi Jane,

    I’m now trying this recipe for the first time and have a feeling I overwhisked as it is quite runny, although it was runny from the very start so might be something to do with the room temperature ingredients. I’ve just put it in the fridge to set and I’m really hoping it does because I’m experimenting and was planning on trying to turn it into a drip cake with ganache covering the entirety of the outside! Fingers crossed!

  12. Hi jane love the recipe, i made it at Christmas and it went down a treat ? dicided to make it again, not sure if i did anything wrong this time but the cheesecake hasn’t set and not sure what to do

  13. I used a stand mixer with a whisk attachment and when I added the cream the mixture curdled, is this to do with the speed? Should I add the cream at a really slow speed until it has fully incorporated?
    Thanks

  14. Thank you so much. I am a pretty nervous cook. Threw my first dinner party and this was mu dessert. Everyone loved it..one of my friends even described it as sexy. So thanks again. I have finals in a week but I’m up at midnight pinning all of your recipes.

  15. Hi this sounds wonderful but can you please tell me what – 150g Digestives – is? Is it flour? I’m in the US and not quite sure of the term.
    Thank you, Teri

  16. I love your Biscoff recipes so much! Is there any possibility of you writing a recipe for the cookie butter ice cream and maybe a Biscoff banana bread? ???

  17. Just made this as a birthday cake alternative for my boyfriend! Will be surprising him with it tomorrow.
    Thank you so much for this amazing recipe – can’t wait to see his reaction 🙂

  18. Hi Jane, just finished making this amazing looking cheesecake! I did everything by the book (so to speak), but ended up really runny, I used my kitchen aid using the whisk attachment? Or should I of used the paddle to start with, then change it to whisk when adding the cream? It is now in the fridge anyway, so fingers crossed it sets, going to give it a good 12 hours before trying to remove it from the tin! It is possible I over mixed it when I added the cream, so we will see how it turns out, which is agony as I have no patience xx xx

    1. You don’t need to change the attachment, but chances are you over did it if it ended up runny. If its a little soft when you want to serve it you could shove it in the freezer for a little bit to firm it up! x

  19. YUM!!!! Fantastic recipe, really easy to follow and make. I’ve tried to make cheesecakes in the past, but have never managed to get them to set as well as this one did. Went down a hit for my works bake day.
    Thank you Jane, keep up the good work 😀

    1. Does this taste cheesy like a cheesecake? I don’t like cheesecake but I once tasted a lotus cake that was supposedly cheesecake but tasted more like a creamy pie cake not so much cheese cake does this taste like that? Or is it very cheese cake-y

  20. Hi,
    I would like to make this cake for my husband’s birthday. Is the butter salted or unsalted for the base? Also, if the cheese filling ends up to be runny, is it okay to add gelatin or freeze it for a few mins before refrigerating it. Let me know.
    Thanks.

    1. I personally use unsalted, but it’s up to you. You can add gelatin if you wish, but I personally don’t like it! However do NOT freeze it straight away, you’d have to set it in the fridge first for at least 5-6 hours and then freeze it otherwise it won’t work.

  21. Hi is it alright if I put your recipient in my blog but given e full credit to you ? If not I will just mention I got the idea from you and link the recipient onto your page

  22. Seen this recipe and looked great!? But when I was making the filling it didn’t quite thicken and started to look curdled. Just went with it and put it in the freezer to see if it will eventually set. Was I meant to whisk the double cream first before adding it in with all the other ingredients?? Xx

        1. Okay as the surface area that you’re whisking is smaller in comparison to a stand mixer it’s easier to curdle if you go to fast 🙂 so if you ever try again, try not to go too fast and move the mixer about a bit more to prevent it x

  23. Looks so tasty! I’d love to make this, but double cream isn’t available in my country.. Any suggestions to replace it? In previous cheesecake recipes I used 1/3 whipped cream and 2/3 mascarpone instead of double cream. Thank you 🙂

  24. OMG I made this for my hubby’s birthday dinner last night it was so delicious and I had many many compliments from the guests. Hubby is a chef and rarely comments on his food but did say how amazing it tasted and how it looked so professional so thank you Jane I will be back in the future for more recipes to impress xx

  25. Hello. Just finished making this and hoping I whisked it long enough for it to set, had a cheeky taste of the cream cheese itself once I’d poured it into its tin, that in itself tastes lovely. Can’t wait to decorate it, even put some of mixture in a mini ramekin for myself as my tin is half an inch less in diameter than the one you recommended. Least then I can leave the big one intact til my picnic on Monday. 🙂 Massive thanks

  26. Hi Jane. Your no bake cheesecake was a total hit with my in laws tonight!! Was so easy to make and turned out absolutely delicious
    Thank you so much!!

  27. After a weekend of Referendum related anxiety, to take my mind off things I did what I do best, bake! This recipe was the perfect treat for the job, such an amazing, easy and delicious recipe, thank you! ?

  28. Fantastic recipe, everyone loved it. So easy to make, love those biscuits and was something different and new . Big thumbs up.

  29. Made this yesterday and had it today with some friends! Was super yummy and so easy to make as well 🙂 It had the perfect amount of sugar too, I find that a lot of recipes online have way too much sugar but this was just right 🙂 thank you! xx

  30. Your cheesecake looks amazing but could you please suggest a substitute for the speculoos as I haven’t seen anything like that in our local supermarkets here in the UK.

      1. That’s brilliant, thank you Jane. I know it’s sad to say but nobody in our family likes Nutella hence probably why I haven’t seen it??

  31. Made this yesterday and tasted very yummy & had lots of compliments. The only thing was it didn’t quite set – how long do you suggest you whisk it for – just approximately. I did about 5 mins but thought if I carried on I might over-whisk. Just so I can perfect the technique for the next delicious one I make! 🙂

    1. I can’t really suggest it because it depends on mixer & speed, and ingredients (if you’re not from the uk, and if you used like supermarket on brand stuff) but I usually do about 5-6 minutes? But as I say, this could be different! I’m glad you liked it though! xx

      1. Thanks for the reply – I’m in the UK & used all the ingredients in the recipe – no substitutes! I’ll just have to try again – definitely not a hardship! 🙂

  32. Hi, instead of double cream, can i use thickened cream for this recipe? Fat content no less than 35% (35%-45%)
    Thank you!

  33. Hi Jane – was wowed by your recipe! Obviously speculoos butter is a well known product in the states, here in Australia it’s only been around a few years. Is only available from gourmet outlets/delis specialising in imported Dutch products. We get ours from the Dutch Shop in Smithfield Sydney. (T’Winkeltje)
    But love your idea, so yummy and so clever! Have you tried it as a baked cheesecake? Maybe swirled through the cheesecake? I saw (on other sites) recipes to make your own speculoos butter – how awesome that would be in your cheesecake!!

    Thanks for the great ideas! Mims

    1. Ohh hahah at least you can still get it! I haven’t tried it as a baked cheesecake yet, others tell me it looses its flavour when baked in comparison to leaving as is! And it’s okay!

  34. Beautiful as always. I love Lotus spread too and think this is a genius idea as when you bake it, you lose the taste. A no-bake cheesecake is therefore perfect! Yumbles in my tumble! 😀

  35. I’ve been fantasizing about making a speculoo cake recently and I think this may hit the spot. Contemplating cancelling my plans this weekend so I can make it straightaway.
