The other day I was out at Trader Joe’s on this whole healthy kick. My whole problem is that I tell myself that going to Trader Joe’s is healthy, which it very well can be or the evil sugar devil comes and haunts me and I buy every item with sugar in it!! OR one of the workers tells me hey look at this chocolate stuffed french toast. How do you say no to chocolate stuffed french toast? The answer is YOU DON’T!
Anyways I came across TJ Cookie Butter which I assumed was similar to Biscoff Spread. And yes it is, this smashed up cookie goodness is even easier for me to get my hands on.
Today I needed some cupcakes and I looked in the cupboard and saw the Cookie butter. Just then I remembered of some Biscoff Cupcakes Jenny made over on Picky Palate. I looked up her recipe and went straight to baking.
These little scrumptious cakes are amazing! So yummy!
1 Cup AP Flour
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Biscoff Spread
2 Large Eggs
2 TSP Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Sticks Unsalted Butter at room temp.
1/4 Cup Biscoff Spread
4 Cups Powdered Sugar Sifted
2 Tablespoons milk
1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a cupcake pan with liners.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, salt & baking soda.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine oil, sour cream, Biscoff spread, eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Slowly add dry ingredients until all well combined.
4. Scoop batter into cupcake liners until 3/4 full. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting.
5. Once cupcakes are cooled begin buttercream. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter and Biscoff until creamy and smooth. About two minutes. Slowly add powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency is reached. Frost cupcakes and enjoy 🙂
