Biscoff has taken the world by storm – or at least it has taken my little corner of the world by storm 🙂

I love using Lotus Biscoff spread and biscuits in my baking recipes and this Vegan Biscoff Cake adds chocolate into the mix… Just SO YUMMY!

It makes for an excellent vegan birthday cake that’s also perfect for those avoiding dairy and eggs due to allergies or intolerances.

What’s more it’s one of the easiest cakes to make – you don’t even need a mixer! Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl and away you go.

INGREDIENTS & USEFUL TOOLS

  • Neutral oil such as sunflower or melted coconut oil.
  • Vinegar – I used red wine vinegar but any type can be used apart from malt vinegar.
  • Coconut milk or any non dairy milk such as Wunda Plant Based Not Milk.
  • Plain (all purpose) flour, caster sugar, baking soda and speculaas spice.
  • Cocoa powder – use a good quality dark unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Unsalted vegan baking spread such as Flora Plant Butter for the frosting.
  • Smooth Biscoff spread (you can buy the Lotus spread and biscuits on Amazon). Alternatively you can use Trader Joe’s Speculoos Spread.
  • Icing sugar (powdered sugar) for the frosting.
  • Chocolate chips – I used dark (semi-sweet) chips. Check the ingredients to make sure they are vegan.
  • Digital scales – I use a scale for all my bakes but it is especially useful for mastering tricky skills like macarons or mirror cakes
  • Measuring spoons are essential for baking – regular spoons do not provide accurate measures.
  • An Electric Hand Mixer is needed for the frosting.
  • I used three Six Inch cake tins for this cake. You can also use two 8 inch cake tins.
  • Cake leveller is very useful for ensuring even cake layers although you probably will not need it in this recipe.
  • Cake lifter – for transferring cakes safely
  • Piping Tips and bags for the frosting

HOW TO MAKE THIS VEGAN BISCOFF CAKE

Full measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page. Please take a look at the steps and video before attempting this recipe!

Make the cake layers. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Spray 3x15cm (6in) cake tins with cake release and line the bottoms with baking paper.

Measure the liquid ingredients (oil, vinegar, vanilla and milk) into a large mixing bowl.

Sift in the flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder and spice. Use a balloon whisk to mix everything together until you have a smooth glossy batter.

Divide between the prepared tins and bake for about 28-30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean and the cakes are coming away from the edges of the tins. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes then turn out to a wire rack to cool.

Beat together on low speed to combine. Increase the speed and beat for a few minutes, adding the rest of the milk as needed, until the frosting is glossy and thick, stopping the mixer to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.

RECIPE NOTES

If you have any urgent questions please ping me a message on Instagram or Facebook and I will do my best to answer any queries!

  • Make sure to use unsalted vegan butter for the Biscoff Frosting. Add as much milk as needed to create the right consistency.
  • Heat the Biscoff spread in the microwave for 20 seconds until becomes runny and easy to use. You can heat it right in the jar, provided you have removed all traces of the foil top.
  • The cake layers can be made up to a day in advance if preferred and kept, covered, at room temperature. Do not store unfrosted cakes in the fridge as they will dry out and become stale.
  • The frosted and assembled cake will keep nicely in a cool spot in a covered cake container.
