Whether you call them donuts or doughnuts, this Lotus Biscoff dessert tastes insane! Doughnuts is the original spelling in the UK but lately donuts have become a popular choice.
Do I Need A Doughnut Tray To Make This?
Yes! The doughnut tray is what gives the Biscoff doughnuts their iconic ring shape with a hole in the middle.
It’s best to use a reusable non-stick tray, see what I used here.
Below are the ingredients needed for this Lotus Biscoff donuts recipe:
- Plain Flour: Salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda are added to plain flour.
- Light Brown Sugar: Adds sweetness and moistness to the donuts.
- Biscoff Spread: I used smooth Biscoff spread for the donut mixture and topping.
- Egg: Use eggs left at room temperature for best results.
- Milk: I used full fat milk.
- Vanilla Extract: Adds extra flavour.
- Butter: Melted butter is needed for the dough and extra to grease the baking tray.
- Biscoff Biscuits: Crushed Lotus Biscoff biscuits for the donut base and topping.
How To Make Baked Lotus Biscoff Donuts
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to make baked Lotus Biscoff donuts / doughnuts. Full recipe instructions are on the recipe card.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (gas mark 4, 350°F) and grease a doughnut tray with melted butter.
Add an egg, milk, vanilla, Biscoff and melted butter into a large mixing bowl and mix until combined.
Pour flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda to the mixing bowl and mix together until a batter has formed.
Add crushed Biscoff biscuits to the batter and mix until evenly distributed.
Spoon or pipe the Biscoff donut mixture into the doughnut tray and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
Stick a skewer inside if it comes out clean then it’s ready.
Leave the donuts to cool down for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool down completely.
How To Make The Biscoff Glaze
To decorate the donuts, pour the remaining Biscoff spread into a mixing bowl and melt it in the microwave.
Once the donuts have cooled down completely.
Dunk each donut into the melted Biscoff and place on a cooling rack glaze side up. Drizzle melted white chocolate and sprinkle crushed Biscoff biscuits. Leave the glaze to harden and enjoy!
How Do You Remove The Donuts From The Tin?
Gently place a knife under the donut on all sides to detach it from the tray, then gently lift the donut with your hands. Baking the donuts in a well-greased doughnut tray will make this step even easier.
The risky way is to tip the tray upside down but that has the potential to break the donuts.
How Long Do Baked Donuts Last For?
Biscoff doughnuts are best eaten on the day but they can keep for up to 2 to 3 days. Store the doughnuts at room temperature in an airtight container.
You can freeze them if you want; see the freezing instructions below.
How To Freeze Biscoff Donuts
Freeze the doughnuts without any Biscoff glaze and decoration.
Allow the doughnuts to cool down completely before transferring them into a freezer-safe container. Place parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking. Keep for up to 3 months.
To defrost, take them out of the freezer and leave to thaw at room temperature. Once defrosted, decorate with melted Biscoff spread and crushed Biscoff biscuits.
My Top Tips
It’s best to decorate the donuts with Biscoff biscuits if you’re going to eat them straight away or on the same day. Overtime, the biscuits will soften due to air exposure.
Don’t skip greasing your doughnut tray even if it’s non-stick. This will help to remove the donuts with ease, otherwise they can get stuck to the tray.
You don’t have to use butter to grease your doughnut tray, you can use oils like coconut oil or vegetable oil.
Double dip the doughnuts in melted Biscoff for a thicker layer of glaze.
Sprinkle crushed Biscoff biscuits on top of the glaze before it has hardened so it can harden together.
Can I Make These Biscoff Donuts Gluten-Free?
To make this recipe gluten-free, you’ll need to find a Biscoff spread alternative. Currently Biscoff spread is not gluten-free. You can use nut butters, or your favourite spread to coat the donuts.
Alternatively, you can crush gluten-free biscuits instead of Biscoff biscuits.
You can make the donuts simply by replacing plain flour with gluten-free plain flour. Most baking powders and bicarbonate of sodas are naturally gluten-free.
