Best known as a caramelised biscuit for serving with coffee, Lotus Biscoff is being promoted as an ingredient for cooking sweet and savoury dishes.

Whether using the biscuits as a crunchy base for a cheesecake or the Lotus Spread as a filling for a tiramisu, Biscoff is already finding its way into the kitchen. Lotus has also launched Lotus Biscoff Crumb – crushed and sieved to ensure that it maintains its distinctive crunch when used as an ingredient in food and drinks.

Clive Roberts, chairman of The Master Chefs of Great Britain and proprietor of the OId Forge in Storrington, West Sussex, is using Lotus ingredients in a number of dishes including his bread and butter pudding.

“Using Lotus Biscoff Spread in my bread and butter pudding recipe gave it a totally unique twist, so much so, that it has become a staple on my menu with many of my customers telling me how much they look forward to it,” Clive said.

“From a chef’s point of view, the delicious caramelised spread is a great substitute for butter or sugar as it melts really easily but once cooled regains its sticky texture.”

Frances Booth, category marketing manager at Lotus Bakeries, added: “Over the years, Lotus Biscoff has built a very loyal following of trade customers and consumers who make a specific point of using Lotus Biscoff biscuits.

“This is now starting to transfer to chefs as they discover the benefits that using Lotus Biscoff spread and biscuits in a variety of recipes, both savoury and sweet, can bring.”

Lotus Biscoff crumb is available in 750g bags (case size 8x750g bags), a 7.5kg sack (case size 1×7.5kg bag) as well as a 150g sprinkler jar. Lotus Biscoff Spread is available as both Crunchy and Smooth varieties in 400g and 380g glass jars respectively, as well as in a 1.6Kg plastic jar (case size 4 x 1.6kg jars). Lotus Biscoff spread is also available for front of house service in small-portion packs (case size 100 x 20g portion pots).
