Reply to comment by timok in [homemade] biscoff-cheesecake by animavivere

I know, I'm Belgian. I only used the term biscoff because I thought that was what it was called in English. Guess I was wrong. Speculoos or nothing!

As an American, if you didn’t put Biscoff, I wouldn’t have known. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I’d prefer speculaas over speculoos anytime. But not sure if that would work in a cheesecake.

Honestly, you'd be surprised. I think the tric is to find the right creamcheese. If it has too much flavor it's going to overpower the flavor of the speculaas.

Just saw your other speculoos cake, that one looks amazing (not that this one isn’t also great). I do miss speculaas since I can only get Lotus here.

You know, there are recipies online on how to make your own...

Yeah I do make my own blend of speculaas spices but it’s quite a lot of work gif

I’m curious tho, what do Belgians call speculaas? Almost every English recipe says speculoos is the Belgian name of speculaas while it’s really a different blend of spices.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I know it has something to do with the spices. But I also think it has to do with where it was made.
