Gluten Free Biscoff Spread

I’m sure all you gluten free people all miss biscoff spread and just like me feel like they are missing out when, as it always seems to, biscoff starts trending in autumn. Well, miss out no more! This recipe makes the most delicious gluten free biscoff spread that is perfect spread on toast, or pancakes, or even just eaten with a spoon after a hard day at work.

Ingredients

  • 100g Dark brown sugar
  • 25g Caster sugar
  • 25g Icing sugar
  • 80g Room temp unsalted butter
  • 1⁄2tsp Baking soda
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 1⁄2tsp Nutmeg
  • 1⁄4tsp Clove
  • 1⁄2 Ginger
  • 150g Gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1tsp ice water
  • 1⁄4tsp salt
  • 5tbsp Melted butter
  • 7-12tbsp Milk
  • 2tbsp Golden or maple syrup

Method

  1. In a large bowl cream your room temp butter and sugars together. Sift your spices, flour, and baking soda into the creamed butter. Mix this all together along with the salt and water until a dough forms.
  2. Wrap the dough up in clingfilm or wax paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  4. Flour your work surface and roll out your dough to about 4-5mm thick and cut into squares, they don’t need to be even as they will be blended up.
  5. bake for around 7-10 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. They will feel a little flexible when they come out of the oven and will look similar to a brandy snap. Leave them to cool and they will set up. Bear in mind these are not biscoff biscuits but they do make a delicious spread. I am still working on a recipe for the actual biscuits.
  6. Once they have set up, break them up into smaller pieces and pour them into a blender. Blend them until they are a very fine crumb.
  7. Add the melted butter, golden syrup and 3tbsp of milk to the blender and blend until combined.
  8. Add 4 more tbsp of milk and blend. If the mixture is still to thick after this add in up to 5 more tablespoons of milk one by one.
  9. Serve on toast or pancakes.
  10. Store in the fridge for up to 7 days.

FAQs

Question: Can I just make the biscuit part of this recipe and not turn it into a spread?

  • Unfortunately, not with this recipe, sorry. I am currently working on a recipe for the biscuit.

Question: How long will this spread keep for, and how should I store it?

  • This spread should be stored in the fridge and will keep for around 7 days, that is of course if your milk is fresh. If you milk is not fresh keep it until your milk is in date.

Question: If I wanted to melt this to use for, say a drip effect on a cake how should I do this?

  • I do not recommend putting the spread in the microwave. When I want to melt it, I like to melt a little butter, or heat a little cream in the microwave and mix the spread in with that. Or you can warm a little cream over the hob, turn off the hob and then mix the spread in with the cream in the hot pan.
