Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake

Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake
For those of you in Utah, I am going to be on the Channel 2 Noon News again this Monday. I’ll be doing a cooking segment
 with their Chef.
I’ll be making Soft Jumbo Pretzels. So….if this recipe has scared you in the past, tune in to the show and you can see how it’s done!
And now, a small warning.
You will not be able to stop thinking about this fabulous Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake
once you have taken a bite.
The rich…
sugar and cinnamon crusted….
taste of this mouthwatering cake will be popping
 into your dreams at night.
What? I’m the only one that dreams about cake at night?
Maybe so, but I have a sneaking suspicion you do too.
This cake is made from scratch.
Hang on there pretty ladies and gents.
Do NOT stop reading.
The mixing and measuring efforts involved in this tasty project are a small price to pay for the flavor packed pay off
 you are going to get in the end.
And just think of what you can tell all of your friends…
“Did I make this from a mix?” you’ll say. 
“Oh heavens no! I baked this beauty from scratch!”
You are going to be hot stuff, I tell you.
Here’s a little secret.
You’re hot stuff already…
Have a Happy Mothers Day everyone.
Put a smile on and have a great day!
Do your Mother’s Day plans include wiping bums, cooking up meals, washing some dishes, solving a little sibling rivalry, packing grouchy kids into the car to head to grandmas house….?
Mine too!
Good thing there are butterfly kisses at bedtime, 
and 8 and 10 year old girls who still want to snuggle,
and a teenage boy who says
 “You’re a really cool Mom. Seriously. You are.” 
and twin boys who like to wrestle,
and lots of funny joke telling,
and MyHandsomeHusband to entertain us on the piano,
and some quiet moments in all of the chaos to just sit and visit.
You know what I think?
Professional Bum Wiping is Under Rated.
Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: 10 servings


2 t ground cinnamon
1 C white sugar
2 1/2 C flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
3 eggs at room temperature
2 t vanilla
1 C full-fat sour cream at room temperature 


1. In a small bowl, combine 1 C sugar and 2 t cinnamon. Mix it together well.
2. Generously grease the inside of your bundt pan with shortening, or spray heavily with Pam Cooking Spray With Added Flour. 
3. Gently dust the entire inside of your pan with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Be sure you get inside all the little nooks. You will most likely only use about 1/3 C of the mixture. Set aside the leftovers to use in the middle of the cake.
4. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set the good little mixture aside for later.
5. In a Kitchen Aid mixer or using hand held beaters beat the softened butter on medium speed for 1 minute.
6. Add the white sugar and mix for 3 minutes.
7. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and add the brown sugar. Mix for 2 minutes.
8. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing for a full minute after each one.
9. Stir in the vanilla.
10. Grab your good little dry mixture and add it alternately with the sour cream. When both sour cream and all of the dry mixture are added continue to mix for 2 minutes.
11. Spread 1/2 the batter into your pan. Pour the leftover cinnamon and sugar over the top. Spread the rest of your batter over the top.
12. Bake at 325 degrees for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
13. Cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    I'm dying to make this…how do you think it would work for cupcakes? Has anyone tried? Should I omit the cinnamon sugar mixture in the center and just dust it on top in place of frosting?

    One of the things that makes this cake great is the cinnamon sugar crust all along the outside. If you try cupcakes I would make them in muffin tins with out a cupcake holder. Be sure you grease the tins well and then dust the insides with the cinnamon sugar mixture. I would still put a cinnamon sugar layer in the middle and then again on top. After they bake and cool you could put them in cupcake holders to serve…maybe even with a little whip cream on top? Just some ideas. Let me know if you try it and how they turn out! Good luck!

    I did just what you said and they came out great. I also sprinkled some of the cinnamon sugar on top of the cupcakes before baking them, and they came out with a crispy glaze on top. Delicious!

    Hi Jamie I hope all is well. I have kind of a strange question for you. When you bake do you use different types of flour? For example I have found it better whne making bread to use bread flour instead of AP flour. What I am really trying to ask is for this cake recipie do you use ap flour or do you think it would work well with cake flour as well.
    Thanks for your hard work on you blog I love it as well as my aspiring daughter who wants to be a chef when she grows up. She is evening wantting to be a chef for halloween.
    Sorry about the rambaling.

    A chef daughter for Halloween. How cute! That's a fun idea.
    I don't use any special kind of flour. The only kind of flour hanging out in my basement is All Purpose. It works just fine for the cake. Let me know how it goes with the cake flour.

    Do you have to use full fat sour cream?

    I would venture to say yes, though I haven't ever tried it with light sour cream. Good luck! Let me know how it turns out!

    the best part of this recipe is the possibility to add almost any type of jam, raspberry, strawberry, guava, chocolate, vanilla, caremel, anyway almost any type of jam do you want.

    Hi Jamie,
    I saw your recipe yesterday on your Pinterest and made it up. What a great tasting cake! The recipe was easy to follow and the cinnamon deliciousness put me into orbit! Now I have to check out some of your other recipes!

    Some of your bundt recipes say they are even better the next day–how about this one? I’m afraid the cinnamon sugar won’t be as crunchy after it’s covered overnight.

      Yes, this cake is better the second day as well. The cinnamon sugar can get a bit crusty in the middle, but I kind of like it that way. 🙂
      Good luck! Hope you love it!

    I made this last night for dessert and it was amazing!! I packed a piece in my husbands lunch for work and he called me to ask where I had bought this cake from. I can only imagine how much better it could taste the second day! Thank you for sharing this, I love your blog! 🙂
