You’ll only need simple accessible ingredients to make these epic biscoff pancakes. Here’s what you’ll need:
Biscoff cookie spread - the most important ingredient for these biscoff pancakes has to be biscoff cookie spread, it offers part of the fat content needed for the batter but imparts its wonderful cinnamon speculoos flavour too.
Oil - you’ll need some oil, this can be any neutral oil you like, I used olive oil.
Egg - in the UK you’ll need a medium egg, in the US you will need a large egg.
Vanilla extract - for additional complementary flavour to the biscoff, you’ll need some vanilla extract.
Milk - I love using dairy milk for the great nutritional benefits especially when ethically and organically produced, feel free to use any nut milk alternative if you wish.
All purpose flour - a staple for all baking ingredient cupboards, if you want to ensure extra fluffy pancakes, sift your flour too.
Baking powder - you’ll need baking powder as a raising agent which adds to the fluffiness of the biscoff pancakes.
Salt - as with any recipe, to enhance all the yummy flavours you need to season it, fine sea salt is all you need.
White chocolate chips - you just can’t go wrong with white chocolate and biscoff, I used these white chocolate chips.
How to make them
Follow these simple steps for how to make these biscoff pancakes:
- In a medium-large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, biscoff, sugar and egg into a smooth caramel coloured paste.
- Gradually pour the milk into the biscoff egg mixture whilst whisking it together.
- You should have a thin smooth light biscoff coloured mix when it is completely blended in. If you put all the milk in before the egg mixture is smooth you may struggle to incorporate it into a uniform mix. If this is the case just use a stick blender to bring it together.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
- Combine the dry into the wet ingredients and whisk together gently.
- Gently stir the white chocolate chips into the batter. You want to mix it until just combined, but DON’T over mix. Leave the batter to rest for 5 minutes whilst heating a pan.
- Preheat a skillet or flat pan on medium heat for 5 minutes and then reduce the heat slightly. When you have the pan preheated, spray a little cooking oil in the pan and wipe the excess out with a paper towel, pour a ¼ cup measure of pancake batter into the pan and cook on the first side until bubbles start appearing and the edges start to look a little matt, you can lift the pancake slightly and see if it has a nice golden brown colour.
- Flip your pancake and cook the remaining minute until cooked through. Remove from the pan and keep warm until ready to serve. If your pancakes start getting too dark too quickly, reduce the heat of your pan a little.
- To make the biscoff cream add the biscoff to a small bowl and start pouring in the cream.
- Whisk together into a pale biscoff coloured whipped cream. Serve with the pancakes and some melted biscoff cookie butter.
Tips for making the fluffiest pancakes
Make sure you read these top tips for the best and fluffiest biscoff pancakes!
Tip 1 - Don’t over mix the batter, doing this with all purpose flour starts to develop the gluten which can make your pancakes tougher.
Tip 2 - Heat your pan appropriately. Check out our tips on these chocolate pancakes for making sure you get the best lift and ultimately the best fluffy pancakes.
Tip 3 - Make sure your raising agent is fresh, don’t use something that's been open and unused for a long period of time.
Tip 4 - Flip when the bubbles have just started to appear and the edges are starting to go matt. When you flip the pancake, it will start to lift and create a "foot" a bit like a macaron does in the oven, if your pan is too cool you will struggle to get this which is why it is important to heat your pan properly so it's a consistent temperature.
Toppings & customisations
Right, here's where the fun starts! Suggestions for toppings and customisations to suit your needs:
Biscoff cream/yoghurt - Biscoff cream is super special, but it definitely feels and tastes more desserty. If you want to make this more suitable for a breakfast you can definitely stir some melted biscoff through greek yoghurt which works just as well.
Berries - The flavouring of these pancakes works particularly well with fresh raspberries but you can pick whichever berry you like.
Nuts - You can top the biscoff yoghurt or cream with crushed nuts, pecans or almonds work well.
Biscoff - Melt a couple of tablespoons of biscoff in a small pan and drizzle over the top of these epic fluffy pancakes.
Crushed biscoff/speculoos cookies - these make such a great topping and add another texture to the mix as well.
Chocolate chips - white chocolate chips work especially well with biscoff pancakes, but feel free to switch up with milk or dark chocolate chips.
Milk - you can easily make a direct switch from dairy to plant based milk if you prefer.
Wholewheat flour - if you wish you can switch out the all purpose flour with wholewheat flour, you will likely need to adjust the milk just slightly to ensure you have the right consistency of batter. If not it will make the pancakes drier on eating.
Cinnamon - you could also add a touch of cinnamon into the batter to add some spice to your pancakes.
Whilst you are cooking your pancakes, set your oven low between 50-100C/170F and have a baking sheet ready. When your pancakes are cooked place them on the baking sheet and keep in the low oven. Be sure to not place them on top of each other otherwise they may go soggy.
Let the biscoff pancakes cool on a cooling rack and wrap in cling film or store in a freezer bag. They will store on the counter top at room temperature for 2-3 days, just reheat in the oven or a toaster when you wish to eat them.
Yes! They freeze really well. When cool, place them in a freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months, defrost fully before reheating in the oven.
Turn the oven on 150C/300F and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet, reheat for 5 minutes until warm and the chocolate chips have remelted.
