Biscoff Carrot Cake Cheesecake

This is the ultimate biscoff, carrot cake + cheesecake mash-up. Moist spiced carrot cake is layered with a creamy biscoff cheesecake, then topped off with more biscoff spread, lotus biscuits and pecans.

You know those things you eat and dream about years later? The carrot cake cheesecake hybrid I ate at a place in New York called Martha’s Country Kitchen was one of those things.

Ever since trying this delectable cake combination, I’ve wanted to recreate it. With Easter coming up, I decided it was the perfect excuse to do so.

Of course, I wanted to add something to make it extra special. I figured I was already combining two of my favourite things- carrot cake and cheesecake. So why not add in a third? Cue the addition of the glorious caramelized lotus biscuit spread that is biscoff.

Hence, the ultimate layered biscoff cake featuring carrot cake and biscoff cheesecake was born.

I am very pleased to report that this lotus biscuit cake turned out EVEN better than I anticipated. The cake got thoroughly devoured by my family. It even earned high praise from my 7-year-old fussy niece. To quote her, “Wow, this is delightful”!
