Lotus Biscoff Cake

This Lotus Biscoff Cake is one of the best cakes you will make in your home. As one of my favorite cookies since childhood, Lotus Biscoff has been used as a reward treat in our home! “Make sure you get to brush your teeth,” my mom would add as the Biscoff lovers nibble away the last piece of our Lotus Biscoff Cookie.

That cookie has the right balance of all the flavors and just the right texture making it one of America’s favorite cookies.

As a home baker, I love making cakes for my family and friends; I had a couple of new cake recipes that I wanted to make! This cake recipe was top of the list, and I was delighted when the Biscoff Butter Spread was launched in the market in 2009.

Now all the culinary goodness of Biscoff Lotus cookies and spread are put together in the ultimate biscoff cake!

Lotus Biscoff cookies and spreads possess a characteristic flavor, and the cake produced is definitely exquisite.

You need: sifted all-purpose, Lotus Biscoff fine crumbs, granulated sugar, baking powder, and little salt for your dry ingredients.

The recipe calls for buttermilk or sour cream, eggs, butter, and cooking oil as wet ingredients. Once the cake is baked and cooled, you will require some cream

cheese, Lotus Biscoff cookie butter, whipping cream or heavy cream, and white chocolate for frosting and layering the cake. Buttermilk is used in this recipe to enhance moisture and texture; in case you do not have ready buttercream, add a little bit of lemon juice to your cup of plain milk and let it sit for a minute.

Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter


This luscious, delicious spread was launched in the market in 2009 ,developed by El Scheppers, who participated in a Belgium TV cooking competition.

She described her love for Biscoff cookies in her family; her many uses of the cookies, such as dipping them in coffee, inspired her to come up with the recipe whose development was supported by the Lotus Bakeries.

The Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter is widely loved because of its rich biscoff flavor. This rich combination of biscuits and cream inspired the creation of many other recipes, such as the Lotus Biscoff cake and many other exquisite desserts. The cookie

butter is rich in caramel flavor, spreads quickly, and blends well with other ingredients. This irresistibly tasty recipe can be spread on toast and used in baking.

There are two types of Lotus Biscoff Cookie butter; crunchy and smooth, just like peanut butter. The crunchy type is suitable for cake filling and other desserts, while the smooth one is perfect for frosting cakes.


The smooth cookie butter can be piped to form rosettes and different decorative designs. In addition to the outlined uses, the smooth cookie butter can be softened, mixed with melted white or dark chocolate, and a bit of butter to make the Lotus Biscoff ganache great for Biscoff drip cakes!

The crunchy consistency has chunks varying in size from teenie weensie to slightly big that are visible. This property is suitable for smoothies and desserts where the cookie butter does not have to be mixed with other frosting ingredients, such as in smoothies and desserts like Biscoff cheesecake and ice creams.

If you happen to buy the crunchy spread as I did, you might not be able to pipe designs on your cake lol…

I used Lotus Biscoff Butter in this recipe to make the filling and the butter cream. For the frosting buttercream, we beat butter, powdered sugar, whipping cream, and Lotus Biscoff cookie butter.

To make the filling, I beat cream cheese, heavy cream, and the Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter. These creations top and fill the cake amazingly, making it the best cake for special occasions.



Since this is a cake inspired by a specific product, substitution is not recommended, especially for the Lotus Biscoff cookies and the Lotus Biscoff cookie spread.

However, you can substitute dairy with non-dairy milk, such as coconut or almond milk.

Expert tip


If you want to make a beautiful, layer cake, you will be grateful if you bake the cakes a day before. Once the cakes have cooled, keep them in the refrigerator overnight. Keeping the baked cakes in the fridge has several benefits

1. The cakes will become firm, and the crumbs will hold on to each other; this reduces crumb frosting cross-contamination.

2. The flavors in the cake will have time to infuse; the result is a chilled cake rich in flavor.

If you are a beginner, leveling cake layers could be a daunting task. To ensure your cake rise evenly, always: bake at the right temperature (use an oven temperature to set your oven to the required temperature). The cakes will dorm at the top if your oven temperature is too high.

Lotus Biscoff Butter Buttercream/ Biscoff Cookie Butter Buttercream


  • 100g Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 Powdered or icing sugar
  • 125g Lotus Biscoff Cookie butter
  • 50ml Whipping cream

How to make

Using chilled equipment, beat the whipping cream at low speed with an electric mixer until it’s fluffy and definite peaks are visible. Keep the whipped cream in the fridge.

Beat the butter with powdered sugar until it changes color from yellow to pale. Add the Lotus Biscoff Cookie butter and beat at medium speed until fully incorporated.

Cake Decoration


1. Cut through the cooled cakes with a serrated knife, wipe away all cake crumbs with a spatula, and put some Biscoff buttercream on a cake board. This buttercream will hold the cake layers during frosting.

2. Place the first layer of cake on the board and the cake board on the turntable. Place a dollop of the cookie butter filling in the middle of the cake and spread evenly with the long spatula. Continue with the filling and layering process till the last layer.

3. We didn’t need dowels to hold the cake layers together with a dowel or straws, but you can do so, especially if you intend to transport the cake.

4. With a spatula, begin to frost the sides of the cake with the cookie buttercream as you rotate the turntable. Place the cake in the refrigerator for the first coat, or the crumb coat, to harden for about thirty minutes.

5. Once the first layer of frosting is set, remove it from the fridge and layer the cake with the second coat of Biscoff frosting. Use a dough scraper to achieve neat edges.

6. Decorate the top of the cake as desired; topping some broken or whole Lotus Biscoff cookies is a beautiful and delicious option. Lotus Biscoff crumbs can also be sprinkled on the edge of the cake or the entire cake decorating the cake in a simple way.

7. Return the cake to the refrigerator for further cooling and setting.

Serve and enjoy this delectable, irresistible Lotus Biscoff cake.
