Biscoff Cake Donuts



Hi everyone and Happy Friday! Have you heard of Biscoff Cookies? I have to admit I wasn't too familiar with them myself, but if you've flown Delta Airlines you might of been lucky enough to sample a package.

What is a Biscoff Cookie you ask? Well here's a little background. Biscoff is the name given to the traditional Speculoos biscuits in North America. It's derived from the combination of the words Biscuit and Coffee.

These delicious cookies owe their unique taste to the caramelization of sugar during the baking process. The cookies have a crisp texture with a caramel cinnamon flavor. Well what's better than a biscoff cookie, but a spread of course.

As a Walmart Mom, I was given the opportunity to sample the new Biscoff Spreads that recently hit the Walmart store shelves. Biscoff spread looks similar to peanut butter, but is nut free. The spread is actually made up of ground biscoff cookies.

It's available in two varieties: crunchy and smooth. The crunchy version gets it's crunch from little bits of cookies added to the spread. As soon as the jars arrived at our door step we couldn't wait to sample them.

My kids were eating it by the spoonfuls! It's sweet, rich and quite addicting to say the least. Biscoff Spread can be used on toast, bagels, pancakes, waffles, fruit and more.

Of course the rich sweet flavor really got my wheels spinning recipe wise. I couldn't wait to get into the kitchen and whip up something with this new spread.

A couple weeks back I got a new donut pan, so donuts it was. I chose a simple vanilla cake donut recipe and adapted it into a yummy version of Biscoff Cake Donuts.
If adding biscoff spread to the batter wasn't enough, I finished the donuts off by dipping them into a biscoff glaze as well. My family inhaled these yummy donuts leaving nothing behind.

Are you a fan of the new Biscoff Spread? If so I would love to know how you use it? Also stay tuned tomorrow for another Biscoff inspired recipe that's ever better than today's! Until then you can follow my fellow Walmart Moms and see what recipes they whipped up using the new Biscoff spread.

1/2 - teaspoon salt
7 - tablespoons buttermilk
5 - tablespoons creamy Biscoff spread
1 - teaspoon baking powder
1 - egg

In a separate bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and Biscoff spread. Begin adding milk 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir until desired thickness of glaze is achieved. Glaze doughnuts while warm or cool.

No giveaway? I was hoping that Walmart would sponsor a Biscoff Spread giveaway since I've never tried it. It sure sounds delicious.

I've been a Biscoff cookies fan for YEARS, and now I love their spread. It's a bit pricey but hopefully Walmart's price will be better.

looking forward to seeing more biscoff inspired recipes.

Love, love, love Biscoff Spread...i discovered it back in January, at our local grocery store, but then it was dicontinued at the store. Searched our local Walmart, with no luck. So I ordered 4 jars online. And it's low in CARBS for a diabetic like me! A great alternative to jelly, jams, on toast in the morning! :)

Some of the Walmart stores won't be stocking it until May. I saw it at my local Walmart in TX, but every area is different. Just keep checking. I love the biscoff spread. So many recipes to be made. :) I will be posting the other biscoff recipe today or tomorrow. It will be so worth the wait.

Biscoff cookies are also known as speculoos/spekulatius. Another (new) version is sold by Trader Joe's as Cookie Butter.

I love this stuff!

I love Biscoff. My favorite way to eat it is right out of the jar . . . a big ol' spoonful of it. Delicious!!! It's also really good on toast.
