Today I wanted to share a recipe with you, this was my first time baking these cupcakes and as they turned out really well I thought I would share it with you.
I always loved the little Biscoff biscuits you get with a cup of tea or coffee at a Café. When everyone went crazy for the Biscoff spread I knew I had to try it out.
I get understand it can be a bit sickly for some people so I think a little goes a long way with this product. I think it would be too sweet for me to have on toast alone.
I enjoy using it with other things for example Nutella and Biscoff spread with grapes and strawberries on top of pancakes is amazing 🙂
Anyway let’s get onto the recipe!
For The Cupcakes
113g / 4oz Caster sugar
113g / 4oz Butter
113g / 4oz Self Raising Flour
2 Free Range Eggs
2 Tablespoons of Lotus Biscoff Spread
For The Icing
600g Icing Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Biscoff Spread
Chocolate for sprinkling
*Before you start make sure to pre heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius*
Step 1 • Cream the butter and sugar together, make sure it becomes light in colour.
Step 2 • Add in half of the self raising flour and one egg to the mixture and then bind it together.
Step 3 • Add in the rest of the flour and the second egg, mix it all together until smooth.
Step 4 • Spoon in the Biscoff and stir together until it is all blended in.
Step 5 • Spoon the mixture equally into 12 cupcake cases, then pop them into the oven for 12 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Step 6 • Once you have taken them out of the oven leave them to cool completely before icing them.
Step 7 • Cream the icing sugar, butter and vanilla extract together.
Step 8 • The last step is to ice the buttercream to the cupcakes and then sprinkle with chocolate.

**when I make my icing I never use measurements, I will always guesstimate. I got the icing measurements from a buttercream recipe which I’ve linked below**
