This quick and simple Snickerdoodle Bread is a lot like a warm, cinnamon-sugar wrapped hug—and we’re all about it. Sour cream lends moisture to the loaf, as well as the subtle signature tang snickerdoodle cookies are known for (typically from cream of tartar). Serve slices of this Snickerdoodle Bread warm with coffee for breakfast or as a sweet after-dinner treat.

Step 3

To prepare the bread, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4

Add the sugar to a medium mixing bowl; pour melted butter over sugar and whisk to combine. Whisk in both eggs until just combined. Whisk in sour cream and vanilla, mixing until just combined. Pour the sugar mixture over the flour mixture; gently stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. 

Step 5

Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the filling mixture evenly over top.  Spread the remaining batter over filling mixture. Sprinkle topping mixture evenly over top of the loaf.
