I find it so strange that my boyfriend will eat chocolate, chocolate cookies, and even chocolate pie, but he does not like chocolate cupcakes. Instead, his absolute favourite thing is Lotus Biscoff Spread, and the Lotus caramelised biscuits. So I thought it was about time I made him these Lotus Biscoff Cupcakes! Everything about these cupcakes is biscoff! It’s in the sponge, the buttercream and the decoration is a biscoff biscuit. Absolute biscoff heaven!
To start I creamed together the butter, sugar and biscoff spread.
I added the eggs and mixed well.
Then I mixed in the self raising flour.
I divided the mixture between 12 cupcake cases in a muffin tray.
And baked them for 20 minutes until they were golden brown. Then I left them to cool completely.
I made the buttercream by mixing together the butter, icing sugar, biscoff spread and milk. I piped it on top of the cupcakes and added a Lotus biscuit.
The Lotus Biscoff Cupcakes were totally delicious with their yummy caramelised biscuit flavour. My boyfriend happily polished off six of them! And my colleagues took care of the rest!
