Snickerdoodle Bread

I find after the holidays are over that I’m still craving cookies, but to be honest, I’m a little tired of making them.  This snickerdoodle bread is the perfect solution!  It’s satisfies my craving without all the work of baking cookies.

It’s got a wonderful, soft texture and tons of cinnamon flavor.  It can be tricky to find cinnamon chips sometimes (which is why I always stockpile them in my freezer), but since it’s not too long past the holidays, you should be able to round some up.  I hid a few loaves in the freezer, and my family polished the rest of in just a few days.

  5. it’s snowing right now and i all i want is a piece of this bread, my remote control, and some tea. looks so yummy and comforting! :)

  6. This looks great, but I’m with Cassandra. I can’t find cinnamon chips anywhere! Do any stores care them, or do I need to order them online?

  7. Thanks for the shout out, Danelle. This bread was a big hit. I found the cinnamon chips at Shaw’s and they were Hershey’s brand.

  8. I loooooove cinnamon chips! This looks delicious!

  9. Love snickerdoodles, they’re my favorite cookie. Now bread! Yum, can’t wait to give it a try.

  10. No lie, Danelle, I have a snickerdoodle snack cake to blog about from just before Thanksgiving and I have a snickerdoodle bread recipe printed out at the same time from Barbara Bakes. Yours looks terrific. Cranberry Almond cake first then Snickerdoodle bread.

  11. The cookie I’ve been known for since I was eight. I mixed up the dough and rolled the balls out, accidentally adding cinnamon sugar twice. Everyone thought they were better that way, and in our family, they’ve been baked like that ever since. Would be fun to try the cookie in bread form!



  12. This looks so good, and I do have cinnamon chips. :) You’ve got the wonderful snickerdoodle flavor here without the trouble of making the cookies- perfect!

  13. This bread sounds WONDERFUL!

  14. It sounds great. I’ve never heard of the bread but anything snickerdoodle works for me!

  15. I’m cookied out too…but this looks fabulous!!

  16. I am always craving cookies, but i understand you being “over” making them!

    looks delish!

  17. I love cinnamon bread, but this brings it to a whole new level…. sounds amazing!

  18. Definitely saving this recipe! Can’t wait to make it this weekend! Thanks

  19. This looks almost like the cinnamon chip bread I made from King Arthur Flour. Except I like the nams Snickerdoodle Bread much better!

  20. I cannot wait to try this out! It looks so yummy! I’m featuring it as one of my Friday Favorites this week :)

  21. Hi Danelle. Great picture! I saw this bread featured on Foodie Crush. I created this recipe for the Great American Bake Sale and it’s one of our favorites.

  22. I made this cake tonight and it turned as really well. These snickerdoodle recipe series are all really good!

    I did have to do some changes “on the fly”…I didnt have enough eggs so I only used 2, and I also had not enough sour cream (ate those with perogies the other day) so I topped up with heavy cream. Even with these improvisations, the cake fluffed up really high – almost over the top of my cake pan. And the taste is quite moist and light.
    This makes a great after work snack cake or a great brunch cake at Christmas time.
    *going back to eating my cake now*

  23. You can usually easily find cinnamon chips at grocery stores around the holidays, especially from Halloween through Christmas. Walmart carries them quite a bit longer, I believe. They are quite expensive if you order them online compared to what you pay at the store (and without the shipping cost!).
