Revised Snickerdoodle Cake w/Cinnamon BC

This cake is delicious. It is reminiscent of my favorite cookie-the snickerdoodle. While it is not exactly like the snickerdoodle it is very close. Delicious with cinnamon buttercream!

I HAD to bake this as soon as I saw it... and WOW it is TOTALLY DELISH! Thanks for posting it, this one is a new family fav!
I made this as soon as I saw it, too! Snickerdoodle cookies are BY FAR my fave cookie - how could I resist?! I made mini-cuppies and gave them to my guinea pigs (a.k.a. former employer!) and they loved them! Of course, I saved a few for myself as well and they were DELICIOUS!!! I only wish I would've kept more!!!!
My whole family loved this cake and bc!!!
Amazing! It held up good and tasted wonderful!
What is the measurement for a stick of butter?? Is it 1/2 cup?? I would really like to try this recipe.
I made these as cupcakes....Very yummy!!! :) Thanks for the recipe!!!
Just made this cake , and it is great , BC was a little sweet for my taste but with a little more butter , a winner in my Book. Great Cake
What's up with step 5? Is it to take a break? :) This recipe looks really good! :)
O my goodness! I absolutely love this recipe! This is amazing. I did not use the BC recipe given with this but instead my own BC and Fondant. Huge raves for it. Definately a new favorite!
I would love to try this cake but what is the reason for the milk being WHOLE milk? I am lactose intolerant to anything more than skim and wondering if I use skim milk, if it will turn out? Any help is appreciated.
I didn't make the cake but will try it next time. I just needed a recipe for cinnamon bc and this one was amazing. The first batch I made exactly as written the second batch instead of milk I used a pumpkin spice cream I had on hand and it was even more yummy. Will certainly make this again.
Ok, so a year later almost, i find myself making these again, only as cupcakes.... YUMMMMM-O. Ty Jenthecakelady again for sharing such a wonderful recipe!
if it's not possible to get cake mix then what do i do? i live in Denmark and we don't really have that here!!
Wow. These were a huge hit at my HS reunion barbeque! I made about 14 different cupcake/icing/filling combinations and the Snickerdoodles were among the faves! So many compliments. Big hit in our house!
The cinnamon buttercream frosting was perfect for my mini cupcakes!! Thank you!!! :) :)
I made these yesterday and they turned out so yummy!!! Thank you for sharing...this is a keeper for sure!!! YUMMMMMMM
This is fantastic! I made this as cupcakes and could not resist the smell of them. Had to eat one before they cooled. I normally don't like warm cake, but this was soooo good. The icing is awesome too. This recipe is definitely a keeper and will now be a flavor I offer when I make a cake for someone.
I made this cake and took it to a friends house, it was gone in 10min. This is a great cake! Thanks for sharing.
Delicious cake and BC! My family love its!
