Snickerdoodle Bread

Don’t you just love Pinterest? Wow, it sure has been a lifesaver today! Have you ever had one of those days where you are just tired of baking? It doesn’t happen to me very often. I love to cook and bake, but I spent almost all day in the kitchen yesterday baking and frosting cakes for a progressive dinner tomorrow night. Today a friend came over and we decorated them–that took several hours. I can’t wait to show you the new pictures for my Carrot Cake, Italian Cream Cake, and Red Velvet Cake. Hopefully, I’ll have them posted up in the next couple of days. We had a lot of fun and the cakes are beautiful. Yay!

Anyway, after spending the better part of two days in the kitchen, I really wasn’t too keen on the idea of making something else, but I had promised to bring something to Sunday school for breakfast tomorrow. I was trying to figure out what to make and thought I had decided to make a chocolate zucchini bread–but I felt too lazy to pull out the food processor and shred the zucchini! So back to the drawing board.

I started going through my recipes and came across one for Snickerdoodle Bread I had saved from last January when my daughter-in-law got me hooked on Pinterest. It had one of those pictures that you drool over. I’ve been wanting to make it ever since. Well, I looked at the recipe, realized I had all the ingredients, and that it was super EASY, and decided to go for it. Thankfully, I keep a well stocked pantry with lots of different kinds of chips and nuts and other assorted things. This recipe calls for cinnamon chips–the only thing that you probably normally wouldn’t have on hand, but fortunately for me I keep on hand regularly.

My source for this recipe was Lil’ Luna and her source for this recipe was Barbara Bakes who actually created the recipe. I actually went back to Barbara’s original recipe and revised the amounts changed by Lil’ Luna and followed it more closely with a few tweaks. Thank you, ladies, for sharing such a wonderful recipe. Can you imagine what my house has been smelling like for the past couple of hours with cinnamon wafting through all the rooms? Oh, my!

I make only one suggestion for this recipe. The flour has to be increased otherwise the bread sinks and doesn’t raise properly while baking. My recipe card reflects this change although my pictures do not.

When I initially posted this recipe in September 2012, it was still the early days of starting this food blog. I didn’t have a good camera, and I had no education in food photography or any kind of photography for that matter. My pictures were blurry, grainy and dark. I recently remade this recipe (October 2014) for friends who had a new baby and retook the pictures as well. I believe these photos portray this bread more delightfully than those of two years ago. Bon Appetit!

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients to make Snickerdoodle Bread.

Mix the sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add sour cream.

Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.

Barbara Bakes recommends that you put the cinnamon chips in a couple of tablespoonfuls of flour and stir before adding to the batter. Adding flour to the cinnamon chips will prevent them from all falling to the bottom of the pan and disperse them more evenly throughout the batter.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add cinnamon chips mixed with flour.

Gently stir the flour and cinnamon chips only until combined. Don’t overmix the dough, and don’t use a heavy hand or breads, cakes and cookies can come out tough.

Spread bread batter into 4 greased and floured miniature loaf pans.

Combine 3 heaping tablespoons sugar with 3 teaspoons cinnamon. Stir well.

Sprinkle loaf pans with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake at 350 – mine took almost an hour and a half to be thoroughly cooked though the original recipe said only about 40 minutes. Put a knife into the center of the bread, when it comes out clean the bread is done.

Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 4 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 pkg. Hershey's cinnamon chips
  • 2 tbsp. UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Cream butter, 2 cups sugar, salt, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, eggs, baking powder, and vanilla, sour cream and mix well.
  2. Mix cinnamon chips with 2 tbsp. flour, toss into mixing bowl with remaining flour.
  3. Stir until combined.
  4. Divide batter between 4 mini loaf pans.
  5. Smooth tops with a knife.
  6. Mix 3 heaping tablespoonfuls sugar and 3 teaspoonfuls cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the batter in each loaf pan.
  7. Bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

My bread loaves actually took almost an hour and a half to bake until a knife inserted in center came out clean. Bake by doneness and not simply by time. Your oven may cook more quickly or slowly.

    Ok I am not a huge baker except holidays. I have made 2 batches of this dang bread and it is delicious! But both batches literally have “gone flat” as soon as I take them out of the oven. I even stick a toothpick in to make sure its done. They are so ugly I don’t dare give them to my new neighbors (we just moved in over thanksgiving). Please give me some ideas so I can try this one last time! :(

      okay, these are my suggestions:
      1) are you in a high altitude area? That really makes a difference in baking and all baking recipes have to be adjusted.
      2) how old is your baking powder? If it’s not fresh you may need to throw it out or stir it up well before using.
      3) the next time you make this add an additional 1/2 cup of flour. Usually when a bread flattens out it means it raised high but the sugar content was so much more than the flour that the flour content couldn’t maintain or support it. Let me explain…
      In most cookie, cake, or bread recipes the ratio between sugar and flour should be 3:2 or 3:1 with the first number for flour and the second number being for sugar. For example: 3 cups flour to 2 cups sugar or 3 cups flour to 1 cup sugar. That’s a good balance. I see this recipe is 2.5:2. You could easily increase the flour by 1/2 cup to even a full cup if you needed to in order to get a nice rise.
      Next time you make this why don’t you increase the flour (if it was me I would probably increase 2/3 to 1 cup). That is going to change the texture of the bread significantly and you may have to put it in 5 miniature pans now. But you should end up with a really nicely rounded loaf pan.
      I’m glad you brought this to my attention. I’ll make a note on my recipe.
      Thanks, Teresa

      So grateful for you posting this delicious bread. I looked over to the person sitting next to me yesterday in Sunday school who was eating a couple of pieces and asked her what she thought of it. Fantastic! she said. I always like to hear what others think, too.

      Again, thanks for sharing this recipe with your readers. Your website looks wonderful.

      Really a fabulous recipe. I think it would be excellent for a muffin batter, too. I like Snickerdoodles anything…ice cream, cake, coffeecake, cookies, sweet bread….I’d probably eat a Snickerdoodle pie if someone invented one!
