Confectionery brands creating spreads is a trend of its own (think Lindt and Maltesers for recent arrivals on the spread scene), but this particular blend is quickly taking over the dessert world.
Lotus Biscoff is more of a household name in the UK, but the biscuit previously most likely to be found next to a hot cuppa or in Nan’s cupboard is gaining a cult following in Australia with the release of a spreadable jar.
It started off with a mention here and there, but the team at Baking Business is seeing Biscoff-based desserts making a big splash. From an indulgent gelato from Burleigh Gelato Co, to cheesecakes and doughnuts, Lotus is making isolation treats an easy sell for bakers.
Sydney-based Donut Papi has been producing Biscoff desserts for some time now, and has a full range of doughnuts, cinnamon scrolls, cheesecake (cleverly rebranded for the pandemic as BISCOV-19), and even a hot drink based on the biscuits and spread.
The Biscoff spread has even found its way into the whipped drink trend we’ve seen emerge over the past months (remember the Dalgona whipped coffee?), with an Instagrammer showing followers how to make a delicious, indulgent drink with just two ingredients.

Valentina Mussi, food and travel blogger, known as @sweetportfolio on Instagram, took to social media to show her 254k followers how you can make whipped Biscoff. Using just Biscoff spread and double cream (sugar is optional), simply add two to three spoonfuls of melted Biscoff spread into a bowl, add 120ml of double cream (a tablespoon of sugar if you like it super-sweet), and get whisking until it’s “fully incorporated and very fluffy.”
Yum! Expect to see this sweet trend ‘spread’ faster than COVID-19!
