  • ¼ cup dairy-free yogurt, room temperature

  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 ½ cups cake flour, sifted

  • 2 tsp. baking powder

  • ½ tsp. baking soda

  • ½ tsp. fine sea salt

  • ⅔ cup dairy-free milk

  • 1 cup toffee bits

  • ⅓ cup dairy-free milk

  • ½ cup dairy-free salted butter

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp. fancy molasses

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp. fine sea salt

BISCOFF BACON BUTTERCREAM

  • 1 cup dairy-free salted butter, room temperature

  • 1 cup vegetable shortening

  • 2 tbsp. bacon fat

  • 6 cups icing sugar

  • 2 cups biscoff cookie crumbs

  • 2 tsp. fine sea salt

  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract


Instructions

EQUIPMENT:

BACON TOFFEE CAKE:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare two 8-inch round cake pans.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream bacon fat and sugar on high for 1 minute.

  3. Add egg whites and mix on high for 2 minutes.

  4. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract and mix on high for 2 minutes.

  5. Combine all the dry ingredients into the mixer and mix on low.

  6. While the mixer is on low slowly pour in the milk and mix until combined. Be careful to not overmix the batter.

  7. Add in the toffee bits and mix by hand until just incorporated.

  8. Divide batter between pans and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.

  9. Cool in pans for 10 minutes and then invert on a cooling rack to fully cool.

TOFFEE SAUCE FILLING:

  1. In a pot over medium-high heat combine all the ingredients and, while continually stirring, bring to a roiling boil.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and allow it to simmer for 5-8 minutes or until it begins to thicken.

  3. Remove mixture from heat and allow it to fully cool. The toffee sauce will further thicken as it cools.

BISCOFF BACON BUTTERCREAM:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter, shortening, and bacon fat on high speed with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. This should take approximately 10 minutes.

  2. Add the icing sugar, Biscoff cookie crumbs, salt, and vanilla extract and mix on low until combined.

  3. Turn the mixer up to high and let mix for 5 minutes until smooth and creamy. Scrape the sides of the bowl when necessary.

CAKE ASSEMBLY:

  1. Place one leveled layer of bacon toffee cake on a cake board or plate. Top with approximately 2 cups of buttercream.

  2. Pipe a border of buttercream around the edge and fill with toffee sauce filling leaving 2 tbsp of sauce for decor if desired. Top with the remaining layer and apply a thin coat of buttercream all over the cake. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

  3. Cover the cake with another layer of buttercream and smooth sides.

  4. Decorate as you please. I left the top edge raw and unfinished and used leftover Biscoff cookies, toffee bits, and toffee sauce for decoration to create a border. Enjoy!
