This Biscoff cake is amazing! This is the first time I’ve made it and I had to run here to write this post out, it’s delicious. I don’t know why I’ve only just started using Biscoff in my bakes but I’m so glad I did and now I have about 50 other Biscoff recipes I want to make!
This easy Biscoff cake doesn’t only look amazing but it also tastes amazing. I’ll drop the video below for you to see how it’s made or you can go and see my partner chatting about it as he makes it in his messy bakes series on YouTube. If you’re looking for a Lotus Biscoff cake, you’ve come to the right place!
Biscoff Cake Recipe UK
I’m not going to lie, the main difference between the USA and the UK version is the measurements, most people use the same sort of ingredients but it’s the conversion that matters. I use grams and not ounces or cups so it’s easier to follow for us Brits. So if you want a UK Biscoff cake recipe, here it is.
This Lotus cake recipe UK also means that you can pick up unbranded versions of Biscoff from places like Aldi, they’re the ones that I use for this recipe and they taste like the real thing. So don’t go crazy and spend loads of money to make this “authentic” when nobody will ever know!
I can’t get enough of this Biscoff cake and how easy it is to make, honestly and that’s why I used it in my first messy bakes video on YouTube which was super crazy to film, a lot of fun and I had a yummy easy biscoff cake at the end of that and I think that’s a great thing if I’m honest.
Lotus Biscoff Cake
This is a lotus cake recipe at its core but that doesn’t mean I used the Lotus Biscoff brand ingredients. Instead, I used the “dupe” version that Aldi sells. It cost so much less, they taste exactly the same and nobody could tell the difference when they ate the cake the next day. I clearly state in my video that I’m not using Lotus products and I think if you want to make amazing bakes, they don’t have to be expensive. I’m always looking to save money where I can and I think this recipe is a shining example of that.
You can also buy Lotus dupe products from places such as Home Bargains and B&M. The only thing I’ll say about the two places I’ve just mentioned, stick to a shipping list. It’s so easy to go into either store and leave with so much more than you went in there for and then a little shopping trip has cost you a fortune and you don’t want that when you just wanna do a biscoff cake recipe!

Easy Lotus Biscoff Cake Recipe
For the cake:
- 400 g Belmont Caramelised Biscuits Around 50 biscuits
- 1.5 tsp Baking Powder
- 380 ml Skimmed Milk
For the topping:
- 125 g Belmont Caramelised Biscuit Spread Melted
- 2 Belmont Caramelised Biscuits Crushed
- Pre-heat your oven to 170℃/340℉/Gas Mark 4.
- Line your 9" cake tin with parchment paper.
- Put the biscoff biscuits into a food processor and blitz until the cookies look like fine breadcrumbs.
- Pour the biscuit crumbs into a bowl.
- Measure out the milk and pour the milk into the crumbs. Mix until everything is fully combined.
- Pour the mixture into the cake tin and cook in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes. Or until a cake tester comes out clean from the middle.
