If you ask my husband what kind of cookies he wants...it will go 1 of 2 ways. Either chocolate chip or snickerdoodle. If I did a statistical analysis on all his answers over the past 10 years, I think snickerdoodle might edge out chocolate chip. So...for his birthday I decided to make a Snickerdoodle Cake. And low and behold, I found a great recipe on the internet! Now i'm convinced you can find anything on the internet. I found a recipe for Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake on the Dozen Flours blog. I was a little hesitant to make a bundt cake for a birthday cake, but then decided to just go for it. Yeah, i'm crazy like that.
The key to this cake being super fabulous was after you grease the pan, you dust it with a cinnamon/sugar mix. And it created this wonderful sugary crust on the outside of the cake after you tip it out of the pan. Heaven!!!
You layer 1/2 of the batter in the pan, sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar mix, then layer the other 1/2 of the batter. You end up with a layer of cinnamon-y goodness in the middle of the cake.
This cake was amazing. It was moist and sweet on the inside with a crunchy sugary crust. JUST like a snickerdoodle cookie! My husband said it was the best cake he's ever eaten. We ate it with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Oh man, was it good! If you were feeling sassy, you could pass it off as a coffee cake and then be justified to actually eat cake for breakfast.
I highly recommend this cake. It was wonderful. Yeah for recipes on the internet!!! Thanks for stopping by!
