Biscoff Brownies

Biscoff Brownies

If you haven’t heard of Biscoff before, it is a caramelised biscuit spread from the brand Lotus. Sometimes it is described as ‘Speculoos’ which comes from the Dutch biscuits that the spread originates from. It is also known as Cookie Butter and a few other brands make it too, but the Lotus version is the only one available in the UK at the moment. You can get it at most supermarkets in both crunchy and smooth, and it can be found on the same aisle as the jam and Nutella. I’ve swirled it into these Biscoff Brownies and added Lotus biscuits on top too for extra Biscoff flavour!

How to make Biscoff Brownies…

I started by melting the dark chocolate and butter together in a pan on a low heat. I let it cool for 5 minutes. In a bowl I whisked together the eggs and light brown sugar.

I added the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly as I poured it in. Then I added the plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. I poured the batter into a lined traybake tin and added blobs of Biscoff spread.

Using a butter knife, I swirled the mixture around a bit. Once the brownies had baked for 20 minutes, I took them out of the oven and pressed the biscuits in, then they went back in the oven for another 10 minutes.

What is Biscoff?

Biscoff spread, made by the brand Lotus, is also known as cookie butter. It has a deep caramel flavour and a hint of cinnamon and other spices. Lotus are best known for their biscuits, which are commonly served with coffee. The biscuits are used to make the spread, and you can buy it in crunchy and smooth varieties. The spread is similar to Nutella or peanut butter in terms of texture, but it has a unique flavour. It’s also naturally vegan!

I cut the Biscoff Brownies up so that the biscuits stayed whole in each piece as I think it looks really attractive! Even though the Biscoff spread was in blobs, the whole of the Biscoff Brownies tasted infused with it’s flavour!

Notes

If you would like to use a 8" or 9" square tin instead, reduce the recipe by one third. So you will need:
  • 235g Dark chocolate
  • 165g Butter
  • 165g Light brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 65g Plain flour
  • 20g Cocoa powder
  • 100g Biscoff spread
  • 9 Lotus biscuits
They will also need less time to bake, depending on your oven, I'd suggest 20-25 minutes.

        1. Hi Natalie, I’ve never worked it out for this recipe but I would estimate it’s between 350-400 calories if you cut the same size slices as I have. It will vary depending on the ingredients you use, for example, what brand of butter you use.

  1. Like Sue I've never tried the spread before, although I adore the biscuits, so I'm guessing I will like it! Might have to have a little trek down to our Sainsburys and see if they have some in stock! The brownies look delicious by the way πŸ™‚ x

    1. Thanks! I hadn't even heard of the biscuits so you probably have a good idea of what this tastes like if you like them. Looking forward to seeing what you make with it!

  2. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious recipe. I thought the dark chocolate would make it too rich but it is so moist and just the perfect amount of chocolately.

    Look forward to making many more of your recipes!

    1. Hi Georgina, I’ve not frozen them myself but I think it will be fine to freeze them! Just make sure they’re wrapped up well.

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe – loved these brownies. As usual, it was easy to follow and combines two of my favourite things – chocolate and Biscoff spread!

  4. Hi! Whenever I’ve made brownies the recipe says to whisk the egg and sugar together until thick/ribbon stage. Your brownies look lovely and I’ve noticed you don’t whisk the egg and sugar much – do you know anything about how egg whisking or not whisking makes a difference? Thanks

    1. Hi, the purpose of doing this is to incorporate air into the mixture. I personally like my brownies fudgier so I don’t want them to be airy. I hope that makes sense! If you want to whisk them to ribbon stage for this recipe you can do that if it’s your preference πŸ™‚
