What is a biscoff icebox cake?
An icebox cake is a no bake cake that doesn’t need an oven, only a fridge or freezer to set it. Biscoff, or lotus, is the famous cookie butter flavored spread that’s become a staple in a lot of desserts.
Also known as speculoos, it has a warm cinnamon gingerbread like flavor, and the spread has the consistency of peanut butter.
Ingredients you need for this biscoff fridge cake:
Just 4-ingredients are needed for this biscoff cake!
Lotus Biscoff Spread– or any cookie butter/speculoos spread.
Lotus Biscoff Cookies– for layering and for garnish
Heavy cream– also known as whipping cream in the Middle East, this is the base of the lotus cream.
Condensed milk– to sweeten the biscoff cream. You can also substitute icing (powdered) sugar.
How to make this easy fridge cake:
- Whisk the heavy cream and condensed milk together until soft peaks form.
- Add the biscoff spread to the cream and mix until just combined.
- Assemble by adding a little lotus cream to a 9×5 loaf pan that’s lined with plastic wrap. Add a layer of biscuits, covering the cream. Add 1/3 of the cream mixture, and drizzle extra lotus spread over the top, swirling with a dull knife.
- Repeat layers until you’ve used up all the cream. Garnish with some biscoff crumbs and whole biscuits if desired.
- Freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight until set and firm
How to serve this biscoff cookie cake:
I slice this cake straight out of the freezer, but let individual slices sit for 15 minutes or so to take the chill off, and for the slices to soften enough that they are easier to eat (and creamier!) When I want to be extra decadent, I warm up extra biscoff spread and drizzle it over my slice.
I keep leftovers in the freezer tightly covered. They’ll still taste just as good for at least 2 weeks!
Recipe tips and tricks:
- Make sure the heavy cream is cold before whipping it. Even better, chill the bowl of the mixer for 20-30 minutes in the fridge. The colder, the faster the cream will whip.
- Don’t overmix once you add the biscoff spread into the cream mixture so you don’t deflate the peaks that formed. Mix until just combined.
- Taste the biscoff cream- if you want it sweeter, add more sweetened condensed milk. You can also substitute icing sugar for the condensed milk.
- Microwave the biscoff spread for drizzling very gently- do 10 second intervals, it shouldn’t take long to loosen.
Biscoff cake FAQs:
