Gooey Biscoff Butter Cake

A few years ago I was introduced to Biscoff spread from a good friend. It’s an irresistible, spreadable cookie spread that you use in the same way as peanut butter or almond butter. It’s made from Biscoff cookies, which are a delicately spiced Belgian cookie with a caramelized sugar flavor. They have a very unique, distinctive taste that you won’t soon forget. You’ve probably had them in flight because several airlines serve them.

You can eat Biscoff spread as a snack on toast, with fruit (one of my favorite ways) or bake with it like I’ve done here. You can add it to any type of recipe that you would use peanut butter in. Here I’ve made a ooey, gooey butter cake with it. This is based off a traditional  gooey butter cake, which is a dense cookie/cake like layer topped with a gooey, creamy cheesecake type layer.

I started off with just a simple butter cake mix, added an egg, a stick of butter and some Biscoff. After I mixed that and pressed it into my greased baking dish, I mixed the filling: some more Biscoff, cinnamon cream cheese, a couple of eggs and some vanilla.

Best of all, Biscoff spread has all-natural ingredients and is preservative-free. It’s also free of trans fat and cholesterol, made without genetically modified ingredients or artificial colors, is vegan and does not contain nuts.
