When it comes to dessert cheesecake comes way way way down the list. In fact it would rarely make the cut, I know what sorcery is this. Sorry I am more of a crumble or ice cream kind of gal. That being said this English Cheesecake Company Lotus Biscoff cheesecake literally had me at biscoff.
Although this was from Waitrose you can buy bigger ones from their website, which includes a Vegan version. This version cost £5.00, serves 6 and is suitable for vegetarians. It isn’t new on the shelves and I think has been around for a while.
‘Rich baked vanilla cheesecake topped with delicious layers of Lotus Biscoff spread, finished with crushed Lotus Biscoff biscuit.’ Sounds heavenly right?!

The base was very crumbly and barely held together so approach with caution. The top littered with crushed up Lotus Biscuits is just a mere drop in the Biscoff ocean. The baked vanilla cheesecake is very creamy and indulgent, and provided the perfect base for Biscoff spread. The filling was firm when eaten straight out of the fridge, however does loosen quite quickly. This meant there wasn’t as much definition between the filling and the base. The base is made from digestive biscuits, which is the right choice in my option, there has to be something to cut between all that Lotus! Price wise £5.00 is a little more than other supermarket cheesecakes but is totally worth it.
You know that Friends episode – the one with all the cheesecakes? That is how I feel and would act with this cheesecake!!
On the whole this English Cheesecake Company Lotus Biscoff cheesecake was utterly heavenly. If you love Lotus Biscuits / Biscoff then you are going to love this cheesecake, even if you aren’t the biggest cheesecake fan.
