Lotus Biscoff Cupcakes!

How are these little biscuits so delicious? And how do cafes expect me to be satisfied with only having one tiny one with my coffee?! I love these caramelised biscuits and when I saw a recipe for cupcakes using both the biscuit and the biscuit spread I couldn't resist!

The recipe is a simple one to follow and can be modified to suit any other type of sweet spread (if you're not a massive Biscoff fan like I am).

  • Preheat oven to 180C and line muffin tins with 24 cupcake cases.
  • Melt 50g butter and 50ml sunflower oil and mix well with 225g caster sugar 
  • Add 100g of Biscoff Lotus spread and then lightly whisk 3 eggs before combining with the butter and sugar

  • Sift 250g of Self Raising Flour with 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder into your cupcake mixture
  • Gradually stir in up to 150ml of milk, or until the mix is just heavier than double cream
  • Fill cupcake cases 1/3 full and then bake for 10-15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean from the cakes and their tops bounce back when touched
  • Remove cupcakes from their trays once baked and leave to cool completely

  • To make the frosting, mix 75g of butter and 50g or Trex (or similar / or 125g butter) with 50g of Biscoff spread and whisk with a handheld mixer until smooth and creamy.
  • Sift 250g icing sugar into the mix and whisk (slowly at first!) until mixture is combined.
  • The icing may look a little thick so add a little milk until at the desired consistency - when piped, the icing should hold it's piped shape.
  • Give it a lil taste and add more icing sugar (and milk) until perfect.
  • Using a piping bag (or a ziplock bag with a little bit of the corner cut off) to pipe the frosting onto the cakes - try not to pipe all the way to the edges of the cases.
  • Crush a couple of Lotus biscuits into crumbs and sprinkle over the iced cakes, then top with half a biscuit each and voila!

I love these little cupcakes - they're an excellent vessel for the Lotus Biscoff Spread ;) The recipe is actually very simple and I'd recommend giving them a go if you want to make something that looks fancy but was actually super easy.
 
Stay inspired,
