Recipe: Snickerdoodle Bread

Snickerdoodle cookies are one of my most favorite desserts. So, when I stumbled upon a recipe for snickerdoodle bread, I knew I had to give it a try!

I merged that recipe with some elements from my best banana bread recipe and baked up something that tastes a bit like heaven! Truly, with a heavy pat of butter, this bread is a pastry treat your whole family will be smitten with!


  • 1 cup salted butter, softened plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Optional: 3/4 cup chopped nuts, divided … we chose walnuts


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix in flours and baking powder. Stir in nuts. Your heavenly snickerdoodle bread batter is complete!

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

While it bakes, mix remaining 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

When a knife comes out clean, remove your snickerdoodle bread from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before turning your snickerdoodle bread out of the pan. Pour 2 tablespoons of melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar blend. Add remaining chopped nuts to the top as well.
