🧑🍳 Biscoff Pancakes in 4 easy steps
1. Dry ingredients
Mix sieved plain flour with a pinch of salt. Use a spoon to form a well in the flour by moving the flour to the sides of the bowl so that there is a dip in the middle.
2. Wet ingredients
Crack an egg into the well and pour on 1 third of the milk. Whisk until a smooth batter is formed, pouring on the rest of the milk gradually as you go. Add the melted Biscoff spread and continue to mix until the batter is smooth.
3. Fry the pancakes
Place a pancake pan or frying pan on a high heat. Add 1 tsp of butter. When the butter starts to sizzle use a spoon or spatula to spread the melted butter across the surface of the pan. Add enough batter to thinly cover the surface of the pan and cook for a minute or two until the underside of the pancake turns golden brown.
Turn the pancake over with a slotted turner or spatula and cook for a minute or so until the other side turns brown. Remove the pancake from the pan and place onto a plate or board with a sheet of kitchen paper on top.
Repeat this process with the remaining pancakes.
4. Make the sauce
Melt the Biscoff spread in the stove or in the microwave and stir in the golden syrup and milk until you get a pourable consistency. Serve the pancakes immediately drizzled with Biscoff sauce and optional banana pieces.
👍 Top tips for perfect Biscoff Pancakes
- Melt the Biscoff spread before adding it to the batter - melted Biscoff spread has a much thinner consistency than room temperature Biscoff spread giving you a smooth and lump-free pancake batter.
- Get the pan nice and hot before you add the batter - this ensures the pancakes crisp up nicely and avoids soggy and greasy pancakes. Smoke and sizzling butter are signs the pan is ready.
- Pick up the pan and tilt it as soon as you add the batter - this allows the batter to spread evenly across the surface of the pan before it starts to set.
The sweet, caramel and cinnamon flavours of Biscoff taste great with chocolate, ice cream and walnut or pecans. When it comes to fruit, the rich buttery texture of bananas pairs up with Biscoff nicely. Fresh strawberries and raspberries also go well and provide a subtle tartness that cuts through the Biscoff's rich taste.
Biscoff cookies (or biscuits) have a delicious caramel flavour that is subtly spiced with cinnamon. The subtle spiced flavour takes the edge off the Biscoff's sweetness, so it does not taste overly rich.
English pancakes are quite similar to crepes, but they tend to be smaller and are not as thin. French crepes are around 1mm thick whereas British pancakes are 2mm or 3mm thick.
The Biscoff pancakes can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave or eaten cold. Make sure you cover them or place them in an airtight container before placing them in the refrigerator.
You can freeze the pancakes for up to 3 months. Make sure you put a piece of parchment/greaseproof paper in between each one to ensure they don't stick together.
