Biscoff Cupcakes

I stumbled across a great recipe on Life Made Simple that uses crunchy and creamy Biscoff spread, which I had in my pantry, so I decided to try it out. I made a few small adaptions to the recipe, including not using Biscoff cookie crumbs (I used the crunchy spread instead) and more ground cinnamon.

Add the eggs to the electric mixer one at a time until well combined

Add the milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon and mix together using a spoon

Using the electric mixer, add the flour mixture from earlier, until well combined

Line a cupcake tin with cases (I found I had enough for 13 cupcakes) and fill each one no more than ¾ full

Place in oven on middle shelf and bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the centre of a cupcake

Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then remove each cupcake to a wire rack and allow to cool completely

Using an electric mixer, beat together the butter and creamy Biscoff spread until light and fluffy

Add, and mix together, the vanilla extract and heavy cream

Add the confectioner’s sugar a little at a time to the electric mixer and combine well
 (the frosting should be stiff enough to form soft peaks)

Frost the completely cooled cupcakes and then serve!
