In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay. Gently fold in the Biscoff spread into the pancake batter.
2. Cook the Pancakes
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter. Pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.

Spread a generous layer of Biscoff spread on each pancake, stacking them as you go. Top the stack with more Biscoff spread and sprinkle crushed Biscoff cookies on top for an extra crunch.

Tips for the Perfect Biscoff Pancakes
- To enhance the flavors, you can add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to the pancake batter.
- For a gooey texture, warm the Biscoff spread slightly in the microwave for 30 seconds before spreading it on the pancakes.

⚖️ Baking in grams
The most accurate way to bake is by baking by weight. Measuring cups are very inaccurate and can lead to baking failures. Therefore all of my recipes are posted in grams. I always bake with a scale, so I have a recipe card that automatically converts metrics to US customary, but it can have errors. So I advise you to bake with a digital scale. You can find them on Amazon for around 10 dollars.
