Funfetti Biscotti for Breakfast

Today’s biscotti is also inspired by cake: Birthday Cake!

I love a piece of biscotti for breakfast, so why not make a batch filled with sprinkles and delicious cake flavor.

  • Birthday Cake Biscotti have a buttery flavor with the perfect amount of sweetness.
  • They taste like just like funfetti cake baked into crisp crunchy breakfast cookies.
  • Serve them for a birthday breakfast, dessert or afternoon treat.
  • Delicious with a cup of hot coffee for dunking!

Important Ingredients

This biscotti dough starts with a simple mixture of butter, sugar, eggs and flour. Give it a cake batter twist with these other additions:

  • Butter flavoring – This extract gives the biscotti an even richer, more buttery flavor.
  • Sprinkles – We used rainbow sprinkles for a festive look! Jimmies sprinkles or round “confetti” sprinkles are perfect.
  • White chocolate wafers – Ghirardelli brand is best. The wafers melt smoothly and set up beautifully on the biscotti.

How to Make Birthday Biscotti

Making Birthday Cake Biscotti is easier than you might think.

  • Mix together the dough ingredients and fold in half of the sprinkles. Shape the dough into two logs and bake for about 25 minutes.
  • Now, cut the dough into slices and bake again until golden brown on both sides.
  • Dip the tops of cooled biscotti in melted white chocolate. Immediately add the remaining sprinkles on top.

Let the chocolate set for a few minutes, then eat and enjoy!

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and butter flavoring.
  • Add flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Fold in 2 Tbsp sprinkles.
  • 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.

  • Once cooled, dip tops of biscotti into melted white chocolate. Add sprinkles immediately. ENJOY.


  • If you can’t find butter flavoring, just swap it out for vanilla extract instead.

  6. 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!

  7. I am a chewy cookie girl so I usually don’t give biscotti a second glance. However, I love cake batter and these are so stinking cute!!

  8. OMG I had no idea biscotti was this easy… my hubby loves the stufff…wow. Definately on my to make list now! TFS

  9. Happy 21st Birthday, Aimee!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy you’re going to go out and celebrate with all your friends tonight and that someone will take care of all your responsibilities for you and you don’t have to worry about a thing 🙂

    (I hope there’s some version of truth there to that and that you are having an awesome day, and being waited on hand and foot!)

  10. 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 🙂

  11. 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!!

  12. 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…

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