Cinnamon Chip Biscoff Cookie Cake

Cinnamon Chip Biscoff Cookie Cake

Most of you probably grew up dunking your cookies in ice cold milk, yes? Well, weird or not, I didn’t. I dunked mine straight into coffee. A strong, black cup of Joe. I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this oddity before. But thought that I should explain the coffee cup with coffee in it in these photos.

I used to spend most Friday nights with my grandma. We would make chocolate chip cookies and then get up on Saturday morning and, before hitting up all the local garage sales, we would drink our coffee (yes, black) and eat our cookies. And since then (age 7 or 8 probably) that is the way I prefer my cookies, chocolate chip or not. And this Biscoff Cookie Cake was no different.

Cinnamon Chip Biscoff Cookie Cake

I was photographing this cake first thing one morning – we have a ton of windows in our new house and we have amazing light but the truth is, that it’s really harsh for photography most hours of the day so I have quickly learned that I need to get as much done early in the morning as possible. So what else do you do when you have a freshly baked Biscoff Cookie Cake and a piping hot pot of coffee? You slice yourself a soft, chewy piece, you photograph it and then you dunk it in the coffee and enjoy it for breakfast.

Have I mentioned lately that I really love this job? Because I do. A LOT.

Permission is granted, go ahead and have cookies for breakfast and if you feel so inclined, go ahead and make your own Biscoff Baking Chips (so genius! )

Cinnamon Chip Biscoff Cookie Cake

Yield: 8 large slices

Total Time: 30 min

Soft and chewy cookie cake with Biscoff spread and cinnamon chips


1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup creamy Biscoff spread
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 (heaping) cup cinnamon chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch round baking pan and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and Biscoff together until blended. Add the sugars and mix until combined and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix for 1-2 minutes until combined and creamy.

With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Add in the cinnamon chips.

Turn the dough out into the prepared pan and use an offset spatula to spread into an even layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-16 minutes, until the edges are lightly brown and set. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan on a wire rack.

    That basically looks like a scone… which means it can be totally eaten for breakfast (why am I making excuses, I eat cookies and cake for breakfast all the time… I’m an adult, I can do these things!)

    I love this. I wish I hadn’t snacked on the last bag of cinnamon chips that I had from the holidays! 🙁 This would be so perfect on such a frustrating morning! LOVE that you dunk your cookies in coffee! My hubs does that too! 🙂

    The thought of dunking this into a piping hot cup of coffee is making me weak in the knees. So much yumminess!

    I would love to eat this for breakfast! I actually dislike milk as a drink! I could totally dip it in coffee.

    Carla @ Carla's Confections — February 15, 2013 @ 11:14 am

    Oh man! Biscoff is the theme of the day (well you and I anyway), and I love your version too! Especially with the biscoff chips! So yum!

    Karly — February 15, 2013 @ 12:05 pm

    I want this cake in my face. The whole thing, all at once.

    And, just a thought, have you tried using a sheer white curtain over your window when the light is too harsh? I photograph newborns in client’s homes, so I’ve had to learn a lot of tricks for different light. The curtain can be a life saver! 🙂

    This cake/cookie is seriously my dream!! What a fabulous idea!

    I would dunk this into a big mug of coffee in the morning, and then enjoy more of this in the evening with a glass of champagne! yum

    Unfortunately we don’t have Biscoff here in Canada but I get my fix when we cross the border once in awhile. I’ll be getting some in about 3 weeks when we head to Florida! I’ll be stocking up! Love the flavors in the cake cookie. Have a great weekend! 🙂

    We are on the same train of thought today with cinnamon chips. Love this!

    Kari@Loaves n Dishes — February 15, 2013 @ 1:45 pm

    Cassie, I so love a cookie cake. The cinnamon is perfect for dipping into a nice mug of black coffee; or as I call it “hardcore,straight up, black coffee”, that makes me feel tuff, cuz I’m anything but.

    katie — February 16, 2013 @ 9:55 am

    Umm… yes please! This looks amazing. I too grew up drinking coffee but not straight up black. That is way too hard core! 😉 Sounds like you and your grandma had great weekends together growing up.

    Mercedes@Satisfy My Sweet Tooth — February 17, 2013 @ 10:12 am

    Wow, black coffee from such a young age? You are brave! Your light does look so great in your new home and your pictures prove that! This cake looks like comfort and deliciousness!

    Liren — February 17, 2013 @ 1:32 pm

    I completely agree with Brian! And you! This is perfectly perfect for breakfast, especially with strong coffee!

    My grandmother served me my first coffee, but it was so weak (or light, as she called it) and sweet, I of course fell in love! So impressed that you had strong black coffee at a young age 🙂

  48. #
    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — February 17, 2013 @ 1:39 pm

    You’re really good at this cookie cake thing, aren’t you? 🙂

    It looks awesome. Love the combination of cinnamon chips and Biscoff!

    Tracey — February 17, 2013 @ 3:38 pm

    I remember my grandparents and mom sitting around the table drinking coffee, and try as I might, I never learned to like it (even to this day). That said, I’d gladly help you eat this cookie cake for breakfast – it looks awesome!!

    I love biscoff! That stuff gets me to click every time. I have yet to find cinnamon chips anywhere up here, but I must try them!

    Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking — February 18, 2013 @ 2:34 pm

    I want a big slice with my black tea right now. And another one for tomorrow morning at breakfast time. Looks and sounds delicious. Great memories of your grandma, Cassie

    Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles — February 18, 2013 @ 7:26 pm

    I love how thick this looks AND those cinnamon chips – I need to try them yet!

    Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts — February 19, 2013 @ 12:43 pm

    I have the same light problem – so dessert for breakfast isn’t uncommon. Love this cake! It is my husband birthday tomorrow, he might get this!

    Kristin Morris — February 20, 2013 @ 10:38 am

    I was sooo excited when I saw this recipe- I have ALL of those things in my pantry. I bought the cinnamon chips thinking i’d use them for SOMETHING. Now I know!

  59. #
    Amber | Sprinkled With Flour — February 21, 2013 @ 8:40 am

    I love biscoff and this cookie cake sounds so delicious Cassie! It would be dangerous for me to have this sitting around my house. For sure!

    Anna {Herbivore Triathlete} — February 25, 2013 @ 8:45 am

    I am a life long lover of cookie cakes and prefer my coffee black as well. I don’t think I’ve ever seen cinnamon chips but will definitely look for them next time I’m at the store. As fars as Biscoff/cookie butter? LOVE it and could eat it by the spoonful.

  61. #
    Shaina — February 28, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    Hands down the best part about cookie cakes are that they stay chewy. I am a chewy cookie person.

    Wendy K — May 10, 2013 @ 11:36 pm

    This was amazing. I can eat an entire jar of biscoff in one sitting. I can’t help it. It’s amazing. Cinnamon chips. I had NO IDEA these even existed! It was all I could do not to eat all the chips before it was time to put them in the dough. Good thing I bought two bags. =) I put in more cinnamon chips than it called for…sorry. I couldn’t resist.

    biscoff and cinnamon chips are perfect for each other! I will be making this cookie cake again (I didn’t have a clean round pan so I used a square one and cut them into bars…) and all of my family loved it. It’s so completely different than any cookie I have ever had and it was delicious!!

  63. #
    Wendy k — May 11, 2013 @ 9:39 am

    And I just ate two pieces for breakfast. Cinnamon is a breakfast flavor…so technically this IS a breakfast food. It goes beautifully with my heavily half & half’ed coffee. :).

  64. #
    Isabella B — October 16, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

    You just probably made my whole day. I didn’t even know that cinnamon chips were an actual thing. And to make something that looks so amazing with them. Wow. I will definitely be trying out this recipe ASAP.
