How to Make Lotus Biscoff Cake Roll
1.Heat the oven to 375F/180C and line a 15x10" baking tray with parchment paper. Leave it aside. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set it aside.
2. Next, crack three eggs and put the whites and yolks in two big bowls. Keep the other two eggs for later. Whisk the egg whites until they turn white and frothy.
3. Gradually add ¼ cup of the sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks form, around 2 to 4 minutes. Combine the remaining two eggs with the egg yolks and beat for 2-3 minutes.
4. Stir in the remaining sugar (¾ cups), water, and vanilla extract and whisk for a minute more.
5. Then, stir in the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix.
6. Next, gently fold the egg whites into the batter, making sure the mixture is still airy.
7. Finally, pour the batter into the lined baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes. As the cake bakes, dust icing sugar onto a clean cloth. Once the cake is ready, remove it from the oven and carefully invert the pan onto the cloth with icing sugar.
8. Peel off the parchment paper and place a new sheet of parchment on top of the inverted cake. Next, roll the cake from the horizontal side and let it cool while you prepare the filling.
9. Lotus Biscoff Filling Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form and set it aside. In a separate bowl, whisk unsalted butter and icing sugar for 2-3 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Next, whisk in lotus spread for a minute or until well mixed. Gently fold the whipped heavy cream into the buttercream and sprinkle Lotus Biscoff biscuits crumbs into the filling.
Assemble Cake Roll
10. Assemble Cake Roll Once the cake has cooled, gently unroll it, remove the parchment paper and fill it with the buttercream. Reserve ¼ of the buttercream for later. Roll the cake again, place the cake roll on a cooling rack and place a tray below it.
11. Glaze Lotus Biscoff spread on top of the cake, sprinkle Lotus Biscoff crumbs on top of the cake roll and let it cool until it sets. Pipe the remaining buttercream on top of the cake roll, place Lotus Biscoff biscuits on top and glaze more Lotus Biscoff spread diagonally along the cake roll.
Serve and enjoy this crowd-pleasing Lotus Biscoff Cake Roll dessert!
Tips and Tricks
- Cooling: Let the cake roll cool completely before adding the filling and decorating. If the cake is not cool, it may break while rolling, and the filling could melt.
- Rolling: Roll the cake very gently to prevent it from cracking.
- Decorating: Feel free to customize and decorate the cake roll as you please.
Yes, you can choose a baking tray instead of a Swiss roll tin, but make sure the baking tray is large enough and can fit the batter.
There are various ways to make this cake. You can choose to combine a vanilla sponge with creamy Biscoff frosting or bake Biscoff-flavored cake sponges and frost them with rich Biscoff frosting.
Lotus Biscoff has a sweet caramel-like flavor.
