Let me introduce you to my Strawberry Biscoff Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting. Nutella gets a lot of attention (for instance, the Mile High Coconut Layer Cake with Nutella Buttercream), but have you tried Biscoff?

For those of you who don’t know, Biscoff is a creamy, buttery cookie spread that tastes delicious on pretty much everything—but especially strawberries. These cupcakes make me feel a little nostalgic for my childhood days of eating too many cookies and strawberries but the mascarpone frosting makes these Strawberry Biscoff Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting feel like a grown-up dessert. You are basically getting the best of both worlds with these cupcakes. So without further ado, here’s the recipe!

  • 1/2 cup Biscoff spread
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup Whole Milk
  • 3/4 cup chopped Strawberries

  • 2 (8 oz.) containers Mascarpone Cheese
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • ¼ sup Granulated Sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream together butter, Biscoff, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Alternate mixing the dry ingredients and milk with the creamed mixture. Fold in the strawberries
  4. Divide batter evenly into cups.Bake for 17 to 20 minutes. The top will be firm like a cookie, and the inside will be soft like a cake. Cool completely on a cooling rack.
  5. Mascarpone Frosting
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine mascarpone cheese, heavy whipping cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract.
  7. With mixing speed on low, begin to beat the mixture. Gradually turn the speed up until it reaches a medium-high speed. Beat mixture for 2-3 minutes until soft peaks begin to form (keep an eye on it while it is beating, you do not want the mixture to curdle).
  8. Frost cooled cupcakes as desired.
