Biscoff Gourmet Cupcakes

Monday, July 16, 2012

One of my favorite things about flying on Delta is getting those addicting Biscoff cookies mid-flight. Usually Stephen and I will eat them in a matter of minutes, but during this past trip I had multiple connections, enabling me to build up a little stash. I know I'm not the only one who has thought of ways to use these cookies, but since we also have Biscoff spread, I thought I'd try making cupcakes with Biscoff flavored buttercream. When I mentioned making these to Stephen he seemed skeptical. After taking a bite of one, he was hooked and I was smitten! What's not to love?

Biscoff Gourmet Cupcakes
Ingredients
1 c. all-purpose flour
¾ c. sugar
¼ c. brown sugar
½ c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 eggs
½ c. + 2 tbsp. sour cream
3 tbsp. whole milk
½ c. Biscoff spread (creamy*)
¼ c. Biscoff cookies, crumbled
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. cinnamon

Biscoff buttercream frosting:
½ c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
⅓ c. Biscoff spread
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
¹⁄₈ tsp. salt
1½ c. powdered sugar
1½ - 2 tbsp. heavy cream

Topping:
Biscoff cookies for garnish

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside.
2. In a medium size mixing bowl, add flour, salt and baking soda, whisk to combine. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter, sugars, sour cream and Biscoff spread. With mixing speed on low, add eggs one at a time until incorporated.  Add milk, vanilla, cinnamon, mix.
4. Add dry ingredients just until combined, about 30 seconds. Remove bowl from stand and fold in cookie pieces.
5. Scoop batter into prepared pan, filling each liner ¾ of the way full. Place in oven and bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and allow to cool completely (25-30 minutes).
6. While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare buttercream frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the softened butter and biscoff spread on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and mix well.
7. Turn speed to low and being to add the powdered sugar (it will look like bread dough). Once the powdered sugar is added, pour the milk a little bit at a time, while mixer is on. Mix until combined. Add milk until the frosting reaches desired consistency (it should be rather stiff). Beat on medium-high speed for 4-6 minutes until fluffy. Frost cooled cupcakes as desired.
* I was unable to find creamy at my local supermarkets, so I used crunchy. Only the texture of the frosting will change if using crunchy.

    1. Thanks Cathy! I believe it is starting to be in more stores. I'd check Walmart or your local grocery store for it! Usually it is near the peanut butter and Nutella or by the coffee.
