I recently discovered Biscoff spread and Biscoff cookies. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Biscoff spread or cookies, they are a Speculoos/Speculaas cookie spread made with butter, brown sugar and spices. They taste similar to gingersnaps, and have a consistency like peanut butter. The name Biscoff came from the words BIScuits and COFFee (source: Biscoff.com and Baking Bites).
I recently started drinking more tea and just absolutely love pairing it with Biscoff cookies. Since it’s that good, why not bake with it? If you like gingersnaps, you’ll love this cookie and spread. And if you love the cookie and spread, you’ll love this coffee cake!
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup of light muscovado sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) of cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup of biscoff spread
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon of homemade vanilla extract
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 1/2 cup of biscoff spread
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
For the topping: In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, butter, biscoff spread and ground cinnamon. Use your fingers to mix until you have a crumbly mixture. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9″ x 13″-inch baking pan.
Using a stand mixer (or an electric mixer, or mix by hand) cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs one by one, and then add vanilla extract, sour cream and biscoff spread. Mix until it has a slight creamy consistency.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture into the egg/sour cream mixture and mix until just moistened. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan. Using a spatula, distribute the batter evenly around the pan. Sprinkle the topping evenly
over the batter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick/cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the coffee cake cool in the pan on the cooling rack completely before serving.

These were soooooo good! I’ve never heard of Biscoff or speculoos before Anne brought home the first pack. Now I’m addicted to them.
They are totally addicting! 🙂 We’ll have to restrain ourselves.
I will have to make this for my mom. She has always enjoyed Biscoff cookies with her tea and I’m sure she would love this. I love your little square plates, Anne. Thank you for the recipe!
Hi Allison! I hope your Mom will like it. I know I did. I had it with tea and it was delicious! 🙂
I have a jar of the spread and I’ve been trying to decide what to make with it. Your cake looks delicious!
Thank you so much!
Reblogged this on Scrumptious Foods.
Thanks for the reblog!
Loving that layer of streusel. Not until you cut into it could you really see how irresistible this little coffee cake would be. Sending my teenagers over now… You better double your batch
Thanks Bobbi! 🙂 So sweet of you to say. Take care.
Anne great to serve for THE hig tea (special if you see filter tea)
Ah, yes! It would be perfect for that. Thanks for taking the time to stop by today Massi. 🙂
Suppost to be “use ” and not ” see ” :)(iPad )
You know, I’ve heard of Biscoff- but never tried it- thanks for the description- now I simply must find some to try!!!
Not sure if you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby but they have the cookies and the spread there. There’s always Amazon but they are a bit more expensive. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
Thanks! We don’t have either of those…I”ll just keep an eye open for it- it’s good to know that Amazon has it as a last resort:0). Thanks for the info!!
Our market just started to carry the spread and I bought a jar because everyone is raving about it. Now I have a delicious recipe to try…perfect timing.
Thanks Karen! Oh my goodness, I can just stick a spoon in the jar and just eat it that way. So addicting!
Addicting…oh dear that could be a problem. 🙂
You have enlightened me to something new once again! Will try to find some Biscoff soon and try it out. Recipe sounds great, btw!
Thanks Jan! I was on a hunt for a while but was able to find the cookies and spread at Cost Plus World Market.
I’ve never heard of Biscoff – but turns out it’s available from online sites in the UK… and that means I’ll be able to make your fab looking cake!
Thanks Sarah. We devoured ours! So glad to hear Biscoff is accessible in the UK.
Oh yum, your cake looks delicious!
Thank you Rosie!
A few months ago, someone posted a biscoff recipe and I was so impressed that I immediately looked for biscoff on Amazon and placed it in my cart. For weeks after, I moved it in and out of my cart whenever I ordered something, the problem being that although I remembered the biscoff, I’d no recollection of what blog posted the recipe. I really enjoy a good coffeecake and this sounds like a good one. Time to move the biscoff back into my cart — and pin this recipe so I’ll know where to find it. Thanks, Anne.
Thanks so much John! Biscoff is so good, I can eat it right out of the jar. I know –so bad. 😀
If you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby, they carry both the spread and cookies. The spread is less expensive than what Amazon is priced at.
Thank you for the tip. There’s a coffeecake in my future! Yay!
this is totally new to me and interesting 🙂
I LOVE cookie spread more than peanut peanut butter. 😀
well Anne i am impressed by your cake, my cookie butter doesn’t last past the jar, let only into a cake… great idea and lovely post…sarah
Thanks Sarah. It was difficult not to eat the whole jar ;). Thanks for stopping by.
Well, I used to love gingersnaps so I’m sure to love these as well.
Used to? You don’t love them anymore?
Ha! Yes, anything to do with ginger. I just never buy biscuits/cookies.
ooooh, anything with cinnamon is good in my books 🙂
Thanks! I agree. 😀
ooooooh, these look right up my alley – thanks for sharing, Anne! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Sunny! 🙂
Anne, this looks scrumptious! I have never heard of Biscoff before. I have been missing out!! They look perfect 🙂
Thank you so much Judy! Always lovely to hear from you. 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog!
I spent few years in Belgium where I became a big fan of the speculos spread. I might have to try that coffee cake at some point!
They are wonderful, aren’t they? And so addicting! I can eat the whole jar. 😀
Sounds absolutely delicious! Never heard of this product before either – will definitely check it out now – thanks so much for the inspiration!
I need this cake NOW!!!! All of your food is so lovely!
Thank you so much Leilani!
I’ve only had Biscoff on a Delta flight so seeing them break out of their thin red wrapper a bit like this is amazing!
I’m new to Biscoff and only heard of them from other Bloggers. I have heard them being served on Delta airlines so it’s nice to know not all airplane food is crap. 😀 I have to admit in the little time I have gotten to know this product, I’m so in love with it. 😀
Oh my goodness! I just made Biscoff donuts but this looks like something the husband would swoon over with a mug of coffee in the A.M. I might have to make this vegan. Yum!!!
Your donuts look wonderful! I will have to give it a try. If you like Speculoos then you’ll love this recipe. 🙂
I looooooove Biscoff spread (I eat it with a teaspoon) and this is a delicious looking cake!!
Thank you so much Winnie!
