Speculoos Cupcakes

I bought a jar of Speculoos ages ago from a trip to Europe and it's been sat at the back of my cupboard gathering dust. You can now buy it in supermarkets here which is good as I will probably want more after the success of these cupcakes. I baked these for work using a recipe I found online and they were absolutely delicious. It has a rich caramel flavour and a lovely smooth consistency. It tastes exactly like the little Lotus biscuits that you often get with coffee/tea but in cupcake form. 

 milk, brown sugar, plain flour, butter, speculoos, eggs 

 The star ingredient

 I decorated mine with some coloured star sprinkles

  1. Oh lovely!
    I adore Speculoos and was wondering what to do with the jar at the back of a cupboard - a present from a Belgian friend.
    Now I know you can get it here I could easily become addicted.

  2. Oh wow, I seriously need to get my hands on a jar of Speculoos! Fantastic looking cupcakes.

    1. Yes do and I promise you won't regret it!

  3. Oh wow, looks like we had the same idea! http://cloudninepointone.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/belgian-speculoo-caramelised-biscuit.html

    I do love Speculoo spread! Your cupcakes look fantastic :)
