Easy homemade white chocolate chip Biscoff muffins with a soft molten Biscoff centre! 

Biscoff muffins

As you are well aware, I am entirely Biscoff obsessed. I will say to anyone who isn’t the biggest fan, that I am sorry for my obsession… I have posted so many Biscoff related recipes now that I might as well have shares in the company, but here we are. 

Last year, a coffee chain in the uk (Costa) created a muffin with the company Biscoff and to say I was excited was an understatement! The absolute dream of dreams. However, it was only limited edition, so I wanted to make it myself at home so I can enjoy it all the time. 

The muffin itself had a similar flavour to my Biscoff cupcakes, with a delicious brown sugar taste – and I loved it. The flavour of a brown sugar suits the caramelised and spiced flavour of the Biscoff down to the ground and it was AMAZING. 

Biscoff centre

The centre of the muffin had some Biscoff spread.. and that is the main goal. However, there just wasn’t enough of it for my liking! I always want more Biscoff though.. so can you blame me for thinking so?!

The problem is that when you want to bake with something like a spread, you risk the spread disappearing or sinking – and I feel like coring out a muffin to add the spread after is cheating a bit. You want it baked into it! I found it easiest to freeze a larger blob of Biscoff (like for my Biscoff stuffed cookies) and go from there! 

If it helps, the blobs of biscoff I did were roughly 30g each – these are quite heavily heaped teaspoons. Because of the size of muffins, you really don’t want them much bigger than that, but this gave plenty of biscoff for the soft molten centre!

Muffin mix

The actual muffin mix is simple to make – and different to your regular cupcake mix. It has to be, otherwise it would just be a cupcake. You want the texture to be muffin like, you want to bake them into larger muffin cases to get the right effect

My white chocolate & raspberry muffins have been on my blog for years now, along with my lemon and blueberry muffins – and I love the base of both. They are slightly different, but they both work wonders. It takes more ingredients, but they are 100% worth it. 

Milk is usually an ingredient I add to help create a better texture and flavour for the muffin – and the ratios of the rest of the ingredients aren’t necessarily the same which you would get with a normal cupcake mixture. These muffins are also ‘plain’ or vanilla based, compared to chocolate – but you can adapt that if you want! 

Chocolate alternative

If you wanted to make your muffins chocolate flavour, replace 35g of the flour with a good quality cocoa powder – and follow the rest of the ingredients as they already are! I used white chocolate chips in the muffins as that’s what I had – but you can use whatever you prefer! 


I will say that if you decorate the top of your muffin like I have recommend with a dollop more Biscoff spread and a Biscoff biscuit, then the biscuit will go soft. It is NOT the end of the world, and don’t go moaning about it – this will always happen, unless you leave the Biscoff off the top to the last minute, or used a wrapped individual biscuit. 


Unlike my cupcakes that I use Iced Jems baking cups for, you do need a muffin tray for this recipe – this is there just to support the muffin cases during the baking process and helps you get the end result. I just use a standard 12 hole cupcake/muffin tray


I used these brown tulip muffin cases for the recipe – and I found they were the perfect size. If you try and use cupcake cases, or baking cups, they will over flow, or you will make more than the recipes makes (12 muffins). I love a tulip case for muffins!


One top tip for when baking with something like tulip cases is that the bottom can sometimes get greasy – to prevent this, you can put some uncooked grains of rice into the muffin tray, before you put the cases in (So the cases sit on top of the rice) – it works wonders! 

I hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do!! X

    I don’t have self-raising flour available. How much baking powder should I add to regular flour? And should I add anything else – baking soda, salt, etc.?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 18, 2024 at 1:29 pm

      Hiya! 2 level tsps per 150g of plain flour, whisked in before using, is the best way to make homemade self raising flour!

    Wow have been following lots of your recipes Jane during lockdown and these were amazing as well as lots of your other recipes I did a garden crawl instead of a pub crawl to distribute my cakes, lol! Haven’t got a favourite as they are so lovely but used to take some to my friends son who was in the marines and when he came home he’d always say ‘is Karen coming around’! Meaning her wanted your cakes, lol!

  3. Alice on February 10, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    Has anybody tried these with a vegan egg substitute (and oat/almond milk) to make vegan? I love the recipe as is but would like to bake for vegan friends!

  4. Sophie on January 17, 2023 at 6:48 pm

    Hi Jane, these look delicious. Would I be able to use skimmed milk instead of whole milk and olive oil instead of sunflower oil?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 18, 2023 at 10:13 am

      Hiya! Sadly not, stick with whole milk and sunflower oil for the best results. Hope this helps! x

  5. Saghar Farahi shemirani on July 27, 2022 at 11:44 am

    hi Jane

    For how long can the muffins be frozen after I have baker them. And how long do they take to defrost


    • Jane's Patisserie on July 28, 2022 at 3:26 pm

      Hiya! These will last for up to 3 months frozen & they will stake 1-2 hours at room temp to defrost! Enjoy! x

  6. Lucy on March 23, 2022 at 3:44 pm

    These are amazing! I have a had couple of people ask me about the calorie content in them. (My fitness pal people)

    Just wondering if you knew?

  7. Antonia on February 11, 2022 at 11:40 am

    Hi Jane
    Love your receipes, always amazballs !!!
    Just wondered are these muffins ment to be moist inside and slightly soft ? Once mine cooled they have a slightly hard texture on the top , not on the soft spongy side like you would get with cupcakes , just wondered is that the way they are ment to turn out or if I did something wrong

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 15, 2022 at 3:30 pm

      Hiya! I’d recommend lowering the temperature of your oven! Hope this helps! x

  8. Maria on October 24, 2021 at 1:14 am

    What if I don’t have self rising flour?

  9. Rachel Marshall on August 17, 2021 at 12:59 pm

    Hi Jane, can I use demerera sugar rather than light brown sugar?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 18, 2021 at 9:01 pm

      I wouldn’t recommend it – I would use dark brown soft, or caster sugar, or white granulated sugar!

    Loved the biscoff!!

    Could you swap the sugar for caster sugar for a more vanilla base?

  11. Nasreen on February 1, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Hi There, i am going to make these as cupcakes rather than muffins, i wanted to ask, how could i adapt this recpie to make the sponge chocolate? is there some flour i need to take out and replace with cocoa? if so how much?

    Thank you 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 2, 2021 at 8:19 pm

      I would substitute maybe 35-40g of flour for cocoa powder!

  12. nasreen on January 31, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    Could I add cocoa powder to the cake mix? If so what do I need to take out? And how much?

    Thank you

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 2, 2021 at 8:18 pm

      I would substitute maybe 35-40g of flour for cocoa powder!

    Can I replace the oil with butter ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 27, 2021 at 7:55 pm

      I haven’t tried these with butter, sorry!

    • Holly on September 11, 2021 at 5:37 pm

      Hi Jane,

      Would these be OK to freeze?

      Thank you.

    Hi there! (I am the previous commenter who asked about mixing biscoff spread into the batter)
    Just wanted to update you…
    I made the muffins last week and my family loved them!! Thank you so much!!! I have been crowned the baker of the family all thanks to you! Thank you!!
    They are apparently the best muffins my family have ever had so thank you for this recipe!!
    Sending lots of holiday love!

    • Ashley on December 23, 2020 at 12:00 pm

      Oops! Also! I have a naughty question! I’ve been searching for a Marble Muffin recipe but where the marbled bit is chocolate and coffee flavoured but I can’t find one 🙁 M&S have a muffin called the ‘chococino’ which is what i’m hoping to recreate! i was just thinking of just adding coffee to a standard marble cake batter – do you think that would be okay? apologies for this question – you’re simply my first port of call for anything baking related 😀
      thank you so much! xx

  15. Ashley on December 9, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    HI there! I’m a big fan of your recipes and site! 😀 Thank you for gracing the world with such wonderful recipes!
    I just have a quick question regarding the batter, I know that it produces a vanilla/plain sponge but do you know if there’s a way to make it a biscoff sponge? Do you think mixing some biscoff spread into the batter would be okay? If not, I might perhaps just crumble some biscuits into the batter 🙂

    Thank you so much and take care! 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 9, 2020 at 2:10 pm

      I wouldn’t bother mixing in the biscoff if I am honest, the taste doesn’t come through enough and it can ruin the texture! Adding biscuits can work but they will go soft x

    • Adam on February 21, 2021 at 10:48 am

      I’ve got white hazelnut ‘kinder’ spread that I used for your bueno cookies. I thought I could maybe use that instead of biscoff to make bueno muffins- could I used chopped kinder chocolate instead of chocolate chips or would that not work?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 21, 2021 at 1:42 pm

      Yes and yes you can! Would work out well!

  16. Emma G on December 4, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Hi Jane, can you put biscoff buttercream on these, like on the biscoff cupcakes?

  17. Hannah clarke on November 29, 2020 at 12:13 pm

    Hello, what’s the best way to defrost the muffins if frozen so they dont loose moisture ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 30, 2020 at 10:53 am

      I would just leave them at room temp!

  18. Hannah clarke on November 28, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    Hey, if I was the freeze a few once cooked .. whats the best way to defrost them so they dont loose moisture and taste as good fresh ?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 30, 2020 at 10:53 am

      I would just leave them at room temp!

  19. Hannah clarke on November 26, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Hey, can these be frozen?
    Thanks 🙂

  20. Brooke on November 11, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    Would it be okay to freeze the biscoff overnight before baking in the morning or will they be too frozen?


  21. Naomi on October 20, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    Hi Jane!
    Can these be frozen after baking?
    Thanks 🙂

  22. Abbie on October 18, 2020 at 1:45 pm

    When I made this the texture seemed so dry! How can I avoid this?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 18, 2020 at 8:37 pm

      You can add in more milk, but that usually that just means it’s over baked!

    • Natasha jones on February 15, 2021 at 12:20 pm

      Same. Delicious as they were. Mine just seemed dry! Baked for 24 minutes at 160 do hardly over baked. I even thought they were under baked when they came out the oven cos they were wobbling but I just let them rest instead. Probably wouldn’t make them again but they are tasty if eaten quickly

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 15, 2021 at 1:30 pm

      The difference in texture can come from the fat content of the milk – but it is possible to be over baked still as all ovens are different!

  23. Bromley Jeffries on October 18, 2020 at 9:49 am

    Hello Jane, i made these, they are delicious! But seem to lots of oil on the case when you take it off?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 18, 2020 at 8:39 pm

      Try the tip mentioned on the post about putting uncooked rice into the tray, and the case on top – it can soak the oil right up!

    I bought tulip cases especially for these. So glad I did as these are huge. The frozen biscoff didn’t sink to the bottom, which is a first for me as everything I’ve tried like this before has sunk 🙄 I did try one and omg 🤤 delish, my partner loved them too, biscoff is one of his fav. The rest will go to work and I’m sure they will get the seal of approval. Thank you for another great recipe 😁

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 14, 2020 at 8:27 pm

      Ahh yay!! And yes, they are built for the tulip cases (which I always think should be filled!!) – so glad you liked them!! xx

  25. Beckie on October 13, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Hi Jane, Instead of just the normal biscoff spread could this work using crunchy spread ?

  26. Emma on October 12, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Hi Jane,

    Would this recipe be able to be altered by just taking out the biscoff spread in the filling to create normal vanilla chocolate chip muffins?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 13, 2020 at 8:52 am

      It can – but it might make a few less muffins x

  27. Carly Johnson on October 12, 2020 at 9:44 am

    Hello Jane

    Can I use vegetable oil instead of sunflower?

  28. Sarah on October 10, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Hi Jane! I’m planning on making these goodies I haven’t got a large egg do I just use 1 medium egg or 2

  29. Emma W-G on October 9, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Hi Jane, I made these this week and the biscoff centre sunk right to the bottom so you just got a kind off crispy caramelised muffin base! Still tasted lovely but obviously not the result I wanted 🤣 how do I get the biscoff to stay in the centre of the muffin? Maybe I didn’t put enough mixture in before putting in the frozen biscoff?? Many thanks in advance x

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 10, 2020 at 8:21 am

      It may be that there isn’t enough mix yes – it won’t perfectly stay floating as it’s a heavy object so will sink somewhat x

  30. Fatema Madari on October 9, 2020 at 8:57 am

    Hi I’m making them for my daughter who has dairy intolerant can I use coconut milk instead?
    Gona try them with Nutella as well! Can’t wait hope they turn out good 😃

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 9, 2020 at 10:15 am

      Generally in baking I recommend using almond/oat/soya over coconut but if you do it often and you know it works then go for it! X

  31. Lucy on October 4, 2020 at 7:57 am

    Mine didn’t rise 🙁 they sunk in the middle! Do you know what could have caused this potentially? I think maybe too much biscoff in the middle 😅

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 4, 2020 at 9:55 am

      It could be too much biscoff yes – but also they may have needed longer baking! x

  33. Emma on September 27, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    Does the nutritional info include the optional decoration extras or is that just for the muffins themselves?
    Thanks xx

  34. Lisa on September 27, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    Hi Jane,
    Could you use normal muffin cases instead of the tulip muffin cases for this recipe?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 27, 2020 at 4:42 pm

      Hey! As mentioned on the post other cases can be smaller so it may not fit all the mix, but otherwise yes!

  35. Lisa on September 27, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    Hi Jane.
    Could you just use normal muffin cases instead of the tulip cases?

  36. Jade on September 26, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    Hi Jane,

    Is butter not used? I noticed on your lemon and blueberry muffins recipe that butter was used in those but not in these x

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 27, 2020 at 9:40 am

      Nope its not – this recipe uses oil, just like my white chocolate and raspberry muffins x

    • Ness on March 27, 2021 at 9:26 am

      Hi Jane,

      Would you be able to substitute the biscoff for lemon curd?


    • Jane's Patisserie on March 27, 2021 at 9:37 am

      Hello, yes its definitely worth a try! x

  37. Sarah on September 26, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Hi Jane, if I didn’t want to add the choc chips do I have to add any additional ingredients i.e more flour ? Or can the chips just be missed out and rest of ingredients left as instructed x

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 27, 2020 at 9:42 am

      I would just leave the chocolate chips out xx

  38. Catherine on September 26, 2020 at 9:36 am

    These look delicious – could you use semi skimmed milk?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 26, 2020 at 12:07 pm

      I wouldn’t recommend it personally as you risk splitting the mixture x

    • Natasha jones on February 15, 2021 at 12:22 pm

      I used semi and they came up fine

  39. Joanna on September 26, 2020 at 9:30 am

    Hi Jane!

    I’m wondering, can you use dark brown sugar instead?



    • Jane's Patisserie on September 26, 2020 at 12:07 pm

      Yes you can! Just makes them darker and increases the treacle like flavour! x
