Prepare in 20 steps

  • 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F) and prepare 3 20cm round baking pans with parchment paper.  

  • 2

    Add the soft butter and sugar into a mixing bowl. Mix for about 3 minutes until creamy and smooth.

  • 3

    Add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, salt, eggs, sour cream and Biscoff spread and mix with a whisk in a second mixing bowl.

  • 4

    Then into a medium mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix with a whisk until combined.

  • 5

    Add half of the dry mixture and half of the wet mixture and the Biscoff biscuit crumbs into the butter mixture and mix until almost combined. Add the other half of the dry and wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

  • 6

    Divide the batter into the 3 baking pans and bake in a 180°C (360°F) preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. 

  • 7

    Let the cakes cool down to room temperature, you can put the cake pans on a rack so that air can pass underneath them. Once cooled down, remove them from the pans.

  • 8

    Now cut the top of the cakes to make sure they are flat and have the same thickness.

  • 9

    Now prepare the buttercream: Add the butter at room temperature, powdered sugar, a pinch of salt, Biscoff spread and double cream to a bowl.

  • 10

    Mix with a hand mixer for a few minutes until the buttercream is light in color and creamy in texture

  • 11

    Now start assembling the cake: Add a small dollop of the Biscoff buttercream on the surface that you will frost on. Lay the first cake layer over the frosting dot.

  • 12

    Top the first cake layer with 1/4 of the Biscoff buttercream and spread an even layer using a spatula or pallet knife.

  • 13

    Now sprinkle a 1/4 of the Biscoff crumbs on top of the buttercream. Repeat with the second cake layer.

  • 14

    Top the cake with the third cake layer and frost the cake with buttercream.

  • 15

    Leave some buttercream to make decorations, put the leftover buttercream in a piping bag with a nozzle.

  • 16

    Put the cake in the fridge to let the buttercream set.

  • 17

    Use slightly melted Biscoff spread to carefully drip spread from the edges.

  • 18

    Fill the top with Biscoff crumbs and top the cake with dots of buttercream using a piping bag.

  • 19

    Optionally, also add Biscoff biscuit crumbs on the bottom sides of the cake.
