Lets get baking…

Why You’re Going To Love This Recipe

Here’s why you’re going to love Biscoff Brownies:

  • Biscoff flavour – the unique malty, caramelised flavour of Biscoff spread makes these brownies a truly delicious treat. Make sure you sneak a mouthful or two straight from the jar!
  • Slice or dessert – you can serve these Biscoff brownies with a cup of tea or coffee, or warmed with a dollop of thick cream or scoop of ice cream for the ultimate decadent dessert!
  • Basic recipe for an impressive result – besides a jar of Biscoff spread and a packet of Lotus biscuits, the remaining ingredients are all basic baking items.
  • Freezer friendly – as brownies are so moist, these freeze exceptionally well, so pop some in the freezer for a later occasion.
  • Conventional and Thermomix – both simple methods are included in the recipe card below.

Equipment Required

I love a one-bowl mix, much less to wash up – and that’s always a good thing!

  • Microwave and large microwave safe bowl.
  • 20cm square baking tin – greased and lined.
  • Oven – if your oven isn’t fan forced, increase the temperature to 170-180 degrees celsius and keep an eye on your Biscoff brownies after 25 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • For fudgy/moist brownies, cook for 25-30 minutes and test with a toothpick which should come out with moist (but not wet) crumbs on it. The top should be flaky and set. 
  • For an extra indulgent treat, serve the brownies warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Storage – store brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Freezing – freeze Biscoff brownies in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. To thaw, leave the slices in a container in the fridge overnight, or sit them at room temperature for 1-2 hours.

FAQs

What type of cocoa powder is best for brownies?

Whatever type of cocoa powder you use, make sure it’s a good quality one!
100% Dutch cocoa powder lends a deep, smooth flavour and is recommended, but natural cocoa powder works well too, if that’s what you have on hand.

How do I know when my Biscoff brownie is ready?

All ovens are slightly different, so start checking after 25 minutes. The toothpick test is the easiest way to tell when brownies are done. Just insert a toothpick or wooden skewer into the centre of the brownies, if it comes out clean, with a few moist and sticky crumbs, then they are ready!
Brownies are traditionally very dense and moist, with a top that is slightly flaky.

What is Biscoff?

Biscoff spread is basically crushed Speculoos made into a paste with a similar the consistency to smooth peanut butter.
In the US it is often referred to as cookie butter.
The flavour is described as caramelised, spicy, malty, and similar to the flavour of gingerbread.
