Why Has Biscoff Become So Popular

Biscoff, also known as Speculoos, is a type of Belgian cookie made from caramelised sugar and spices, typically served with coffee. Here are some reasons why Biscoff has become so popular and have been used in so many recipes like this Biscoff cookies recipe;

  1. Unique flavour and texture: Biscoff cookies have a distinct flavour profile, characterised by their caramelised, spiced, and slightly crunchy texture. This uniqueness sets them apart from other cookies and makes them appealing to consumers looking for something different. It is important to note that the Biscoff dupes are also very good and most cost friendly if you want Biscoff without the price tag.
  2. Versatility: Biscoff cookies can be enjoyed in various ways. They are delicious on their own as a sweet treat, but they can also be crushed and used as a pie crust or mixed into ice cream, cakes, and other desserts. Biscoff cookie butter (a spread made from Biscoff cookies) has also become popular and is used as a topping, dip, or ingredient in many recipes. This spread can be purchased in either smooth or a crunchy texture, much like peanut butter.
  3. Social media and viral trends: The rise of social media platforms has played a significant role in the popularity of certain foods, including Biscoff. People sharing pictures and videos of Biscoff-related recipes or treats can create viral trends and generate interest in the biscuits.
  4. Vegan and allergen-friendly option: Biscoff cookies are often vegan and do not contain common allergens like nuts and dairy, making them accessible to a broader audience with dietary restrictions or preferences.
  5. Availability and distribution: Biscoff cookies are widely available in grocery stores, specialty food shops, and online retailers. This accessibility makes it easy for consumers to purchase and enjoy them. Biscoff cookies and spread are available in most UK supermarkets and stores on the high street such as B&M, Home Bargains and Poundland.
  6. Partnerships and collaborations: Biscoff has collaborated with various brands and food companies, incorporating the cookies into different products like ice cream, coffee beverages, and more. These collaborations can help increase visibility and attract new customers.

When Did Biscoff Spread Come To The UK?

Biscoff spread first came to the UK in 2009. It was the brainchild of Els Scheepers, who appeared on the Belgian equivalent of Dragon’s Den in 2007 with her recipe for a Biscoff spread. Her recipe made it to the final and impressed Lotus Bakeries so much that it approached her to make the product a reality. That being said it feels like Biscoff has been on the British shopping shelves forever, I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t there and we always seem to have a jar in the cupboard!

Biscoff spread was initially launched in a few selected supermarkets in the UK, but it quickly gained popularity and is now available in most major supermarkets and high street stores.

Biscoff spread has become a popular choice for breakfast, snacks, and desserts. It can be spread on toast, bagels, or waffles. It can also be used in cakes, cookies, and ice cream.

The biscuits are also a nice addition to lunch boxes and you can get the biscuits individually wrapped to make it more convenient.

Equipment

  • Weighing scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Silicone Spatula
  • Nonstick baking sheet

Ingredients
  

  • 235 g Plain White Flour
  • 160 g Soft Dark Brown Sugar
  • 150 g Lotus Biscoff Spread
  • 130 g Softened Butter
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180℃/350℉
  • Whisk the butter, Biscoff spread, golden syrup, vanilla, and sugar in a large bowl until the mixture turns fluffy.
  • Incorporate the flour and baking powder thoroughly; your mixture should now be a sticky, light dough.
  • Take a generous amount of dough with a large ice cream scoop, flatten it against the bowl's side, and then shape it into a ball using your hands. This technique ensures 12 evenly sized cookies.
  • Arrange the dough balls on baking sheets lined with parchment paper, leaving at least an inch of space between each cookie to prevent sticking as they spread while baking.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges turn golden. Remove them from the oven before they brown completely to retain their chewy texture once cooled.
  • Let the cookies cool on the tray until they're firm enough to move to a wire rack for complete cooling.
