Birthday Cake Biscotti: delicious breakfast treat! So easy to make too!

Today is my birthday! Whoohoo!

And of course today’s recipe is perfect for me. Right? Since I am such a biscotti fan I think it’s only fitting that I made a birthday version.

I have to be honest though. This birthday cake biscotti isn’t an original idea. This spring I went on a blogger trip to an egg farm, and at the market there was a cute little coffee shop. They were selling….Birthday Cake Biscotti. Of course I didn’t buy any, but I took a photo so that I would remember to make it!

For months this idea has now been rolling around in my head. I was so excited to finally bake it, because I knew I wanted to share it on my birthday.

But as a special bonus, I was able to share the biscotti in real life with one of my best friends! Her birthday is a little over a week before mine, so dropping off a little package of biscotti  to her was so fun. Now that we have moved back “home” I love sharing the goodies from my kitchen with family and friends.

Anyways…for today’s recipe I used my Snickerdoodle Biscotti recipe as the base (eliminating the cinnamon, of course). I also added butter flavoring (it’s sold in the  baking aisle next to the vanilla extract). It adds a deeper, buttery flavor; much like yellow cake. And sprinkles, well, that was just a must!

Now, go bake a delicious batch of Birthday Cake Biscotti for one of your friends or family members. I’m pretty sure it will bring a smile to their face! Don’t forget a batch of Birthday Cake Fudge for a little fun dessert too.

 It’s my birthday, so how I about I share some of my favorite things….


 Dark Chocolate Cake: my ideal birthday cake. This one is absolutely incredible!


Nutella No Bake Cookies: these are little bites of heaven.


Lemon Meringue Fudge: this still ranks as my all time favorite fudge recipe!


Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles: eggless treats that are incredible.

Birthday Cake Biscotti

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes

Birthday Cake Biscotti: such a fun treat! Biscotti is so easy to make, and it’s the perfect breakfast with a hot cup of coffee!


  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp butter flavoring
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles, divided
  • 6oz vanilla candiquik, melted (or Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers)


    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and butter flavoring.
    2. Add flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Fold in 2 Tbsp sprinkles.
    3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (or a silpat). Divide dough in half and shape into two 10inch x 2.5inch rectangles. Use flour on your fingertips to keep dough from sticking.
    4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove and cool 10 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut each rectangle into 9-10 slices each. Turn each slice onto it's side. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Flip biscotti onto opposite sides. Bake another 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
    5. Once cooled, dip tops of biscotti into melted Vanilla Candiquik. Add sprinkles immediately. ENJOY.

  13. Happy birthday Aimee!! I hope you had a fabulous day celebrating! 🙂 And these biscotti… Seriously the best (and most festive) way to start the day! I think I only first discovered biscotti sometime in high school when my dad brought home some from Trader Joe’s, and when I found out they were cookies that were acceptable for breakfast… Well, I basically fell in love on the spot! Your birthday cake version looks so fun, and that’s so sweet of you to share them with your friend for her birthday too!

  17. Happy, Happy Birthday!! I love Biscotti with my coffee too. Just saved the Dark Chocolate Cake recipe too. Sooooo many goodies…wish I lived closer! 🙂


    1. Oh it’s seriously so easy! And if you put it in a ziploc bag they last for about two weeks. If they start to get stale, it’s okay, dunk them in the coffee 🙂

  18. Happy birthday! These biscotti are super fun and cute! July is birthday month for us over here, so I’m going to have to whip up a batch of these!!

  19. Do you get unlimited coffee on your birthday? YOU totally should!
    These biscotti look so festive! I’m amazed you didn’t buy any that one time. But I’m sure yours are better anyway!

    1. I sure do 🙂 I prefer homemade biscotti over store bought. I’m always disappointed when I buy it…much like cupcakes…

  20. Happy Birthday my friend! I hope it’s the most awesome, fabulous day ever. I would INHALE these. 🙂
