Biscoff Cupcakes with Biscoff Buttercream

biscoff cupcakes with biscoff buttercream recipeI am so late to the Biscoff party. And for that, I deeply apologize.

A few months ago, you couldn’t go anywhere in the food blog world and not see Biscoff something or other. What is Biscoff you ask? It is like peanut butter in consistency, but it a spread made from ground cookies. If you have ever flown Delta, it is the spicy cookie that they give you with your Diet Coke. It is sort of like what peanut butter is to Americans, and nutella is to Italians. It is called Speculoos in some European countries, you can call it whatever you want, I just call it heaven in a jar.

I have found it in my regular grocery store, but Traders Joes makes a speculoos spread, and I always have been able to get it at World Market. If you have never tried it, do yourself a favor and pick up a jar.

These cupcakes are a great way to showcase this delicious product. These cupcakes are unique in that the tops harden a bit like a cookie, while the bottom is soft like a cupcake. I found these cute fall colored chocolate candies at Cracker Barrel of all places, and have been puttin them on everything to get into the mood for fall.

    I can’t seem to find anything like biscoff here in Ireland, do you have any alternatives?(: X

    Well, I am not really sure. Try looking for speculoos.

    Amazon.com has it! Here in Germany I can’t find it either. πŸ™ But I have some coming from family in the states!

    You had me at Biscoff!! Off to the store for cream (and maybe some fall candies too — very cute) and then I’m baking the night away!

    I have yet to try Biscoff. Colorado doesn’t seem to have biscoff anywhere, and believe me I checked multiple places. However, down here in the south I was able to find some, in every grocery store too! So I have picked up a jar and now it’s sitting here, taunting me because I have too many recipes stacked up to not know what to make first πŸ˜›

    And I love the little fall candies on top of your cupcakes. I’m so in the mood for fall I can’t wait πŸ™‚

    I love your site Bree. I am addicted to it. You have the best pics and recipes. You must’ve been reading my mind. I was just telling someone about Biscoff and how great it is. Thanks for the recipe, everyone at work is waiting for me to make this.

    These look so good. I love getting those cookies on Delta. πŸ˜€ I had Biscoff flavored gelato in Paris and I’ve been craving it ever since. I might have to go on a search for this stuff and make these lovely cupcakes.

    October 20th, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    Yum!! It is not hard to find anymore. Most grocery stores have it. World market carries it too.

    The recipe states 1/2 cup butter for the frosting but in your pictures, you show 2 sticks which would be 1 cup butter. Which one is the correct amount? Thanks, adore your site!

  29. bakedbree

    November 2nd, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    The written recipe. I made more frosting because of how I was going to decorate the cupcakes.

    Hi, these are super yummy! I did have a question thoug, your recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter for,the buttercream but in your picture it looks like you’ve got 2 sticks?

  31. bakedbree

    I doubled the recipe. The written recipe is correct.

    The icing calls for cream, what cream exactly?

  38. bakedbree

    January 5th, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    heavy cream, or you could use milk.

    For people who are searching for Biscoff in Europe, they are called Lotus cookies there. Not sure if the spread is available there yet or not. But the cookies have been around for ages.

    Actually, Biscoff sells all of their products from their own website. https://www.shopbiscoff.com/ and they ship anywhere in the USA, but not internationally. It’s under $10 for 2 jars or $22 for a 3 1/2 POUND JAR… for serious cookie butter eaters!

    Can you make this recipe as a cake?

  42. bakedbree

    August 31st, 2017 at 11:48 am

    I’ve never done it, but you are more than welcome to try.

  43. Danielle

    Excited to make these but I’m from the UK so could you please tell me what is the amount of the biscoff you used in both parts in grams?

  44. bakedbree

    December 10th, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    You can find gram to cup converters by doing a quick Google search. That is what I do when I am using a UK recipe.

    November 10th, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    So you didn’t mention anything about the oven temp so i’m assuming it’s 250 degrees F πŸΈπŸ™πŸ½
