Biscoff Cake!

A Delicious and Moist 3-layer Biscoff Cake with Lotus Biscuits! Perfect Spiced and Sweet cake for all Biscoff Lovers out there!

I now have a good few Biscoff recipes on my blog and they are always super popular because a lot of you seem to have the same adoration for Biscoff as I do! I recently updated my Biscoff Cookie Butter Cupcakes recipe to have some new pictures and they were such a massive hit I thought I would post my Cake version of the recipe!

My recipes for my No-Bake Biscoff Cookie Butter Cheesecake and my Biscoff Cookie Butter Fudge so I know that you guys will LOVE this.

I used a simple cake recipe of using equal ratios of sugar/butter/flour/eggs as the base of my cake because it always works in my opinion, and it creates such a light and moist cake that there is no point messing with it.

Using the twist of Light Brown Sugar in the Cakes like I have in a few of my recipes now it really does work. I personally find that it makes the sponge actually that much more moist and its utterly delicious compared to using normal caster sugar.

The cake has a lovely natural caramel taste to go with the Caramelised theme of the Biscoff so its utterly dreamy. The Cookie Butter Buttercream is deliciously light and moussey even though it has the addition of the cookie butter itself so this cake is perfection in my eyes!

As my previous cake recipe to this, my Caramac Cake, had a drip style to it I thought I would go back to my classic sort of baking styles and just layer them up with buttercream in the middle. I used the biscuits in the middle of each of the sponges and on top because it gives the little bit of a crunch that I always crave in a cake and without using the same sprinkles again, but this is optional.

My mum took this bake to her work as my family are a bit caked out at the moment so I thought it would be an idea to give it away to keep her colleagues happy, and I’m not joking when I say that it disappeared SO quickly I was even a tad shocked.

Like, I know usually there are some people that say no to cake because they are on a  diet, but JEEEEEZ this one just went! So much biscoff loving. But seriously, this cake would be ideal for those who love cake but nothing too sweet, and definitely one for this caramelised delicious Lotus/Biscoff/Speculoos lovers out there!

This cake was amazingly featured on Zoella Youtube Channel, and here is the video for it! Enjoy!

Ingredients
Cake
  • 400 g Unsalted Butter/Stork
  • 400 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 7 Large Eggs
  • 400 g Self Raising Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Buttercream
  • 250 g Unsalted Butter (room temp)
  • 500 g Icing Sugar
  • 300 g Biscoff Spread
  • 2-3 tbsps Boiling Water (optional)
Decoration
  • Crushed Lotus Biscoff Biscuits
  • Whole Lotus Biscoff Biscuits
  • Melted Biscoff Spread
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
For The Cake
  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan and line three 20cm/8inch sandwich cake tins with baking parchment – leave to the side.

  2. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter and light brown sugar for a few minutes until light and fluffy.

  3. Add in the flour, eggs, baking powder and vanilla and beat again briefly till combined – try not to overbeat! 

  4. If its really thick, mix in some whole milk to loosen. Divide the mixture between the three tins and smooth it over – bake for 25-30minutes until the cakes are golden and when the cake springs back (skewer should also come out clean)!

  5. Once baked, leave the cakes to cool in their tins for 10 minutes or so, and then remove and leave to cool fully on a wire rack. If the cake has domed slightly, leave the cake to cool upside down to flatten it slightly so its easier to decorate later!

For The Decoration
  1. Beat the butter with an electric mixer for a couple of minutes to loosen it – Gradually add the icing sugar on a slow speed until it is combined then speed the mixer up and mix for 3-4 minutes until thoroughly combined and smooth.

  2. Add in the Biscoff Cookie Butter to the buttercream and continue mixing, and gradually add the boiling water until you reach the desired texture! Keep on beating for 5 minutes until whipped and silky smooth!

  3. Using your favourite piping tip, I used a large round tip, pipe the buttercream onto the bottom layer of the cake. Add the second layer, and pipe buttercream on again!

  4. Add on the third layer of the cake and pipe on the rest of the buttercream. Drizzle over some melted biscoff spread, and add on some Lotus Biscuits, Crushed biscuits and some sprinkles. Alternatively you can just slather the buttercream on instead! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • I love this style of cake as you can tell from the few I have made, and I happen to have 3 8″ tins, if you don’t have 3 tins you can make a smaller version of the cake with two 8" tins (Can take slightly longer to bake)
    • 300g Butter
    • 300g Sugar
    • 300g Flour
    • 6 Medium Eggs
    • 1.5tsps Baking Powder/1tsp Vanilla
    • 2/3 of the decoration recipes!
  • You can buy the Biscoff/Lotus spread in nearly all supermarkets in the UK now, its usually found next to Nutella!
  • I wouldn't add the water to the buttercream unless it is essential. Often on a sunny or warm day, it won't be needed! 
  • This cake will last in an airtight container for 3 days, at room temperature.
  • I used a large round tip, to decorate this cake!

    Hi Jane. I’m relatively new to baking and want to try making this cake for my Grandma. I’ve read in a few places that you should weigh the eggs first and then weigh the butter and flour to be the same. Do you think this is necessary? Also, I only have two cake tins. Will it be ok to let the cake mix sit whilst the first two sponges cook and then pour the remaining mix into one of the tins to cook once it’s out the oven to ge the three layers? (Hope that makes sense!). I cannot wait to try this cake!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      August 31, 2019 at 9:29 am

      Hey! This does weigh the same. You can either use 8 medium or 7 large eggs, and it’s perfect for the bake. Also, it’s probably better to bake into two and bake for longer and then split, as cake batter needs to be used straight away! Or, you can make 2/3, and then make the other 1/3 later on! Or, use the recipe in the notes section to make a two layer.

      Hi, just made this cake and the butter cream went wrong…..
      I did exactly as receipe said but it was not a creamy texture. It was more like a greasy thick mousse kind of texture. It was also a darker brown rather than a creamy colour.
      What did I do wrong??

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 26, 2019 at 9:14 am

      You will have either used an incorrect ingredient, such as the wrong butter (which is often the case), or made it incorrectly. What exact ingredients did you use? And what mixer did you use? As the buttercream contains Biscoff, it will be a brown colour.

    Hey. Made this recipe this week. I intend to let the kids decorate it tomorrow but wanted to say how amazing the recipe is. I even used vitalite spread for my lactose intolerant nephew and the cake rose wonderfully (left it for 30 mins in the oven) thank you for this recipe. I love biscoff. Admittedly not a fan of the cookie butter on its own but great in buttercream.
    Thank you for this creation Jane xx

    Hi Jane, thanks for sharing another great recipe. I’ve been asked to make a biscoff cake for a friends son’s 16th birthday this weekend and it needs to be A4 size. Do you have an idea of quantities and timing? I’m thinking of doing three separate layers…do you think this will work?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 25, 2018 at 7:40 pm

      Hiya! I’m afraid I am slightly unsure of what that would be – you would probably need a good load of the mixture as A4 is about 8.5″x11.5″, so maybe at least double it, and use x2 for a layer? You might get a bit of leftover but it’s better to have enough, rather than not enough! x

      By the Fahrenheit temperature you are describing, I will assume you aren’t in the UK? There is no way a cake sponge should take that long if its made correctly, or using the correct ingredients. Maybe your measurements are slightly off if you have been altering them. And if it was dry it was overbaked.

I have another question: how do I keep it fresh if I’m making it the morning of Christmas Eve and it needs to be good Christmas Day in the evening. If I put it in a glass jar thingy that you store cakes in then surely the buttercream will go all weird, and if I put it in the fridge it will stiffen up and won’t be very good… what do I do?

    2) How do I weigh the eggs, without the shells?

    Hey Jane! I was wondering if it would work if I just put the cake mixture into cupcake cases and also how many cupcakes it could make? I don’t really need a huge amount of cupcakes so do u recommend any way of scaling down the measurements if the original ones make too many? Xx

    Hi Jane, I made this cake two times it was so good but I had a problem with the butter cream it was So soft ? I used cup major for powder sugar it was 3 cups and tow tablespoons. Could you tell me how many cups should I put? Thank you

      Hiya, you’ve measured it incorrectly so it wouldn’t have worked. You need to use gram measurements to be accurate, as cups are not. 250g of Butter, 500g Icing Sugar and the cookie butter.

      It won’t be that they are ‘eggy’ if you put the correct amount in – it’s not possible. Are you sure you used the right amount of egg? It might be that the mixture split a little though? It’s hard to say – but with a cake you need as little & gentle mixing as possible. Sorry you had an issue! x

    Hi Jane,

    I love the idea of this cake and it looks incredible so definitely going to try making it for my boyfriends birthday only I know he really thinks the drip down icing effect is really cool like the caramac one you made, how could you convert that to his recipe do you think?
    Any advice would be really great,

    Thank you 🙂

      I would do the sponge the same, but use 1.5 times the amount of buttercream if that makes sense? And don’t put as much in the middle as I have, about 2 tbsps for the two filling layers, and use the rest to decorate the top and edges. You can melt down Biscoff Spread gently as well and use that as a drip, or use the drip method on my Caramac or Oreo cakes!

    Reply
    • Jane's Patisserie
      October 27, 2016 at 8:12 pm

      If you use whipped cream you’ll have to store the cake in the fridge as dairy shouldn’t be out of the fridge for more than 4 hours, and you can add biscoff to the cream, but it might not whip the same x

    Hi Jane, I have just found your website through the wonders of pintrest. I am currently planning my wedding and wedding cake which I am planning on making myself. My addiction to biscoff is REAL! I found this recipe and obviously it needs to be part of the big day. I’m planning on each tier being different (planning, whether it works is another thing) Do you think this cake is firm enough to be stacked as a middle tier of a 3 tier cake (will be supported with dowels too). Look forward to hearing back from you xxx

      Hiya! Oh that sounds intense, I don’t know if I could make my own cake! I’m sure it would work, but its VERY soft, so maybe add in 100g of plain flour to the mix, and mix the mixture for about 5 minutes with a beater attachment so its silky smooth, and it’ll end up like a madeira cake almost… I realise madeira cakes are a little drier, but you could use a simple sugar syrup to keep the cake moist, and the slather on the Biscoff Buttercream! x

    Hi Jane, I made this cake and it all was good apart from the icing. While I was piping it, the butter was literally seeping out of the bag and by the time I had done half of one row, I was left with hard ‘icing’ that had no butter or moisture in it. What gives? The room was cool, the cakes were cool, I had rinsed my hands in ice water before starting. This was so disappointing as it ruined the aesthetic of quite an expensive cake. 🙁

      Hiya – chances are you split the buttercream. It’s not the recipe that’s incorrect, it’s something that’s been done whilst making it, as this recipe is based on a basic buttercream. You didn’t need to cool your hands in ice water or anything before piping it as well.. sorry you had problems, but as I say maybe there was something wrong with the ingredients you use, or you’d split the buttercream.

    Hey there! I’m so excited to make this recipe for an international potluck I’m a part of (I’m in America, but I’m obsessed with Biscoff!). I do have one question though. Would it be possible to put some cookie butter or even cookies into the batter itself? If so, how much do you think would be a good amount?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi,
    This cake looks amazing!! I wondered how long the biscuits stay crisp in the cake for? I’m really excited about baking this for my friends birthday but the cake would be left out on a table for a few hours, probably in a warm-ish room. Will the biscuits stay crunchy?

      I can’t quite remember if I am honest, but inevitably they will go soft eventually.. maybe put the biscuits on top as late as you can?! They don’t ever go super super soft, but will eventually be not as crisp 🙂 x

      Use 300g worth of Butter, Sugar, Flour and Eggs, and reduce the baking powder to 1.5tsp and 3tbsps of milk – might take 5/10 minutes longer to bake.

      Hiya! It’s hard to say really, because as much as the tin may only be called 2″ bigger, the depth and volume of the difference is quite a lot, so I reckon it could end up quite thin?? Maybe bump it up to 500g of ingredients for the cake (and more eggs obviously too) so hopefully that’ll be enough! x

      Make it 550g and split between 4 tins, or use the same amount on the recipe but bake for longer in two deeper tins, then cut in half! (It’s already a lot of cake, so cutting two in half is probably best!)
