Does this cake taste like a snickerdoodle cookie, or more like a cinnamon cake? I was wondering if some cream of tarter was added if it would taste more like a snickerdoodle.
This sounds delish! Can't wait to try it. Cream of Tarter functions primarily as a stabilizer, and I have doubts that adding it would enhance the taste; but more likely change the consistency and not in a positive way.
Sounds so good! i'd like to try it for my sons birthday cake. Will it hold up to layers and fondant?
Donnawb, I think that would depend on the amount of cinnamon added. When I made mine, I made a double batch and added 2 tablespoons of cinnamon for a really strong cinnamon flavor. If you wanted the lighter snickerdoodle flavor you would probably want to stick closer to the 2 teaspoons. I also used 2 tablespoons in the frosting (also a double batch). It has been a while, so I'm not sure of the amount of batter this made. I believe I filled 2- 10x2" pans, but don't quote me on it.
ashlynsbowtique- I covered it in fondant and it held up quite well.
This cake is awesome!! Made for a wedding cake they loved it making another one tonignt
This is one of my most requested recipes now...I just do cakes on the side for family & friends & this is their favorite. So moist & just the right amount of cinnamon flavor.
AWESOME recipe!! Followed it to a "T' except added 1tbsp of cinn. to batter for more cinn. taste. Sooo good! I'm glad I tried tonight! Thank you!
Hello! Thank you so much for the great recipe! Do you use small box (3 oz.) of instant vanilla pudding or large?
Sounds yummy! Can this be made as cupcakes instead of a cake?
I was instantly attracted to the recipe as soon as I saw the name Snickerdoodles. Unlike most people in this world, THIS was the first cookie I learned how to bake WAY back in the "olden" days in the 1960s. And still today, I would still far rather eat a snickerdoodle than I would a chocolate chip cookie. Don't get me wrong, I like CCC, especially warm with a nice cold glass of milk, but I'll still take a snickerdoodle first. Would you believe that when I went to visit friends for the first time about 15 years ago who lived about an hour above Pittsburgh I discovered they had NEVER heard, nor ever eaten, Snickerdoodles. I couldn't believe it, talk about being deprived in life. Well naturally I made them a big batch of the cookies. That's what I did when I went to visit this friend. I usually went for at least 4 or 5 days and much of the time I spent baking and stocking the family's freezer full of baked goods for them. The mom was a wonderful cook, but she was not into baking. She only ever did what she HAD to do in life in baking but yet the woman could whip up, without any recipe, THE best soups imaginable and incredible homemade crackers. I've never even made my own crackers before.
Anyway, that's not the question I want to ask. I wanted this recipe because I REALLY want a cake that taste like Snickerdoodles. However, after reading your description of how the recipe came about it sounds like its just more of a cake with cinnamon. Does it REALLY taste like a snickerdoodle cookie?
