Overview How To Make Cookie Butter Cake

This Biscoff Cake recipe combines fluffy vanilla cake layers with a luscious cookie butter frosting, topped with crushed speculoos cookies for an added crunch. To begin, preheat your oven to 350�F and prepare three 6″ cake pans by greasing, flouring, and lining them with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and milk to the batter, mixing until just combined. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared pans and bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool before assembling.

While the cakes cool, prepare the Biscoff Buttercream frosting. Whisk together egg whites and sugar until combined, then heat over a water bath until smooth and no longer grainy. Transfer to a stand mixer and beat until stiff peaks form and the mixture is cooled. Switch to the paddle attachment and gradually add cubed butter until smooth, then mix in the cookie butter until well combined.

Spread a layer of crunchy cookie butter between each cake layer, then frost the outside of the cake with the Biscoff Buttercream. For an extra touch, sprinkle crushed speculoos cookies on top. Now, you have a decadent Biscoff Cake ready to enjoy for any celebration!

Time for The Tips!

  1. Adjust for Different Pans: If you’re using 8″ pans instead of 9″, the recipe still works great. And if you want to go for three layers instead of two, just increase the recipe by one-and-a-half times.
  2. Cupcake Conversion: Want cupcakes instead? Easy peasy! Just lower the baking time. Check ’em around the 15-minute mark to see how they’re doing.
  3. Get Creative with Cookie Butter: I mixed both Smooth and Crunchy Cookie butter spreads in this cake. But if you’re missing the crunchy one, no worries! Smooth works fine, or you can skip it altogether.
  4. Crunchy Option: Want some extra crunch? Sprinkle crushed cookies between the frosting layers. Yum!
  5. Prep Ahead: Bake your cake layers in advance, let them cool, then wrap them up tight in plastic wrap. Stick ’em in the freezer for up to three months. Just remember to thaw them out a couple of hours before putting everything together.
  6. Frosting Flexibility: Store any leftover frosting in an airtight container in the fridge. It’ll stay good for a week. Or freeze it for up to three months. Just bring it to room temperature and give it a good whip before using it again.
  7. Extra Resources: Check out my Swiss Meringue Buttercream post for some handy tips and troubleshooting. And if you want to keep your cakes extra moist, Simple Syrup is your friend.

Storing and Managing Leftovers!

  1. Prep in Advance: Consider making your cake layers ahead of time and pop them in the freezer. It’s like breaking down the task into smaller, easier bits.
  2. Frosting Flexibility: You can whip up the frosting early too or keep the leftovers. Just stash it in an airtight container in the fridge for around a month. If you need longer, it’s good in the freezer for up to 3 months. Remember to give it a good stir when it thaws to make it nice and smooth again.
  3. Long-Lasting Goodness: Once your cake is frosted, it’s a fridge or freezer champ! Stick it in the fridge, and it can last up to a week. Freeze it, and you’ve got a whole month of cake happiness. The ganache works its magic, keeping everything moist and scrumptious.
  4. Leftover Love: If there’s cake left after the party, don’t worry. Just slather some of that extra frosting on the cut parts to keep them moist. Pop it back in the fridge, and it’s good to go for another week.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Can I use different sizes of cake pans?

A: Yes, you can adjust the size of the cake pans to suit your preference. However, keep in mind that baking times may vary depending on the size and depth of the pans used.

Q: Can I make the cake ahead of time?

A: Absolutely! You can bake the cake layers in advance and store them in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to assemble and decorate the cake. Just ensure they are properly wrapped to prevent them from drying out.

Q: What can I do if my frosting is too thick or thin?

A: If your frosting is too thick, you can thin it out by adding a little milk or cream, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. Conversely, if it’s too thin, you can thicken it by adding more powdered sugar, a little at a time, until it stiffens up.
